Relationships between Prior Experience of Training, Gender, Goal Orientation and Training Attitudes
Narayan, Anupama; Steele-Johnson, Debra
International Journal of Training and Development, v11 n3 p166-180 Sep 2007
Relationships were examined between prior experience with training, goal orientation, gender and training attitudes. Participants (n = 165) had a minimum of six months of work experience. Results from regression analyses indicated that mastery-approach goal orientation had a beneficial effect on training attitudes for men but not for women. In addition, prior experience with training had a beneficial effect on training attitudes, and women had more favorable attitudes than men. The results provide initial evidence that gender moderates goal orientation effects in training contexts.
