Abstract [en]

The present study assessed affective profiles, locus of control and posttraumatic growth (thriving) as factors determining the receptivity of managers to assimilate new knowledge, skills and insights associated with the coaching leadership paradigm. Data were assembled using a web-based survey among 385 managers who participated in a leadership development programme focused on coaching leadership skills and practices. The data were analysed using three stepwise multiple regression analyses. We found differences regarding respondents’ (managers) capability of developing according to the programme. Positive affect (PA), internal locus of control and posttraumatic growth predicted managers’ receptivity to assimilate the relevant knowledge, skills, insights and coaching tools. The results support the notion that PA, an internal locus of control and the propensity for posttraumatic growth contributes to empowerment through adoption of a coaching leadership style.
