A Comparison of Self-Concept Changes between Management Training Workshops and T-Groups.
Krusell, Judith L.
Changes in the self-perception of participants in two different types of training groups were investigated. A self-descriptive semantic differential for 'actual' and 'preferred' behavior was administered to participants in sensitivity training groups (T-groups) and management training workshops at the beginning and end of their training. Results indicated that participants in the T-groups showed a significant decrease in the discrepancy between their perceived actual and their preferred behavior over the course of their training. Participants in the managerial workshops did not manifest a similar significantly reduced discrepancy. In addition, the T-group participants changed their perceived actual behavior toward greater similarity with their preferred behavior significantly more than the managerial workshop participants.
