Self-Efficacy Beliefs in Leader Development

May 24, 2011 819

Moe Machida and John Schaubroeck, both of Michigan State University, published “The Role of Self-Efficacy Beliefs in Leader Development” in Online First in Journal of Leadership & Organizational Studies. Professor Machida provided some background information regarding the recent article.

Who is the target audience for this article?

We believe that both scholars and practitioners who are interested in a topic of leader development will find the article helpful.

What inspired you to be interested in this topic?

I was always skeptical about “higher the confidence, the better” approach that is commonly seen in both research and real life. And I decided to examine it further in this article.

Were there findings that were surprising to you?

Although this is a strictly conceptual paper, it provides direction to future empirical studies that may challenge the common notions about self-confidence.

How do you see this study influencing future research and/or practice?

We believe that this article will broaden the readers’ perspectives about the role of self-confidence in leader development. We hope that scholars and practitioners will follow up with the suggestions made in the article for their future research and/or practice.

How does this study fit into your body of work/line of research?

My main research interests include development of leaders and the gender differences in the leader development process. I am planning on testing the relationships suggested in the paper in my future studies!

How did your paper change during the review process?

Our article was accepted in the current form. And we are very grateful for the editors’ decision!

What, if anything, would you do differently if you could go back and do this study again?

We are pretty happy with our article. But if space allows, it would have been nice to discuss additional factors (that may influence the relationship between self-confidence and leader development). I am definitely planning on following up with the propositions and suggestions we have made in the paper. This is a topic that I am passionate about, and I am looking forward to further studying this topic!
