The Role of Goal Orientation in Leadership Development
DeGeest, David; Brown, Kenneth G.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v22 n2 p157-175 Sum 2011
Goal-orientation theory and research offer a lens to better understand the mechanisms of experiential learning in developmental assignments for managers. This study presents a research model that depicts how goal orientations influence the development of leadership skills from experience. The model indicates how individual and situational characteristics interact and influence managers' learning outcomes. By extension, the model proposes how situations could be altered to increase how much managers learn from work experiences. Future research directions on experiential learning as part of management development are also proposed. (Contains 1 figure.)
