Coaching all and sundry? A team-level examination of managerial coaching and its relationship to a team’s task performance and OCB, delivered by Dr Margarita Nyfoudi, Birmingham City Business School.

Abstract

The practice of line managers coaching their direct reports has been increasingly linked to individual employee performance, and has emerged as the most prevalent form of coaching in the workplace - yet little is known about the team context within which the practice occurs, and its relation to team-level processes. To address this gap, first we draw on social cognitive theory and the theory of emergence, and introduce the concept of a team’s coaching capital as the collected effectiveness of team members’ individual coaching interactions with their line manager.

Second, we examine the role of a team’s aggregated business knowledge and the line manager’s learning goal orientation. We use dual-source survey data involving 243 office workers (60 managers and 183 team members) and employ a moderated mediated model to test our team-level hypotheses. The findings demonstrate that when the line manager’s learning goal orientation is high rather than low, the aggregated business knowledge of the team partially mediates the relationship between coaching capital and team task performance, while it fully mediates the relationship between coaching capital and team OCB.

The study contributes to a more inclusive conceptualisation of managerial coaching, highlights its value, and discusses the implications for both managers and HR practitioners.
