Army Civilian Leadership Development: Self-Efficacy, Choice, and Learning Transfer
Godinez, Eileen; Leslie, Barry B.
Adult Learning, v26 n3 p93-100 Aug 2015
The mission of the Army Management Staff College (AMSC) is to provide leader development educational experiences for Army civilians. To develop as leaders, students must recognize they have a choice to take action that influences their work environment. The authors suggest the learning environment at AMSC is intentionally designed to be paradoxical to the work environment in an effort to promote student leadership self-efficacy beliefs. Faculty use a facilitated student-centric approach to create a learning environment that promotes self-efficacy and learning transfer; however, other factors such as feedback, coaching, and peer and organizational support also affect learning transfer and should be considered in curriculum design and delivery.
