The impact of leader self-efficacy on the characteristics of work teams

Guillermo Buenaventura-Vera

Resum


Purpose: This work focuses on the study of the impact of the Self-Efficacy (SE) of the leader
on Innovative Work Behavior (IWB), establishing the influence of contributing factors, such as
the Organization Learning Capability (OLC) and Team Member Exchange (TMX).
Design/methodology: Structural equation modeling is used as a statistical test method. This
technique enabled the quantitative validation of the qualitative hypotheses raised in the study.
Findings: The results suggest empirical evidence supporting a positive relationship among the
constructs considered in the research.
Originality/value: This work develops a new relational model and contributes to the
establishment of the mechanisms of the relationship among the variables of positive
psychology, making an academic contribution within the broad field of resources and dynamic
capabilities theory. It also makes a real social contribution in terms of its immediate application
and the knowledge of how factors of selection (the self-efficacy of the leader) or handling
(OLC) can influence variables on an individual level (TMX and IWB).
