Role of masculinity and uncertainty avoidance orientation in the relationship between team Learning behavior and self-efficacy
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter examines the relationship between team learning behavior and employee work related selfefficacy beliefs and further explores the moderating role of individual difference variables, such as masculinity–femininity and uncertainty avoidance values. The study tested three hypotheses using a sample of employees from a large public organization in Pakistan. The results indicated a significant positive relationship between team learning behavior and employee perceptions of their self-efficacy. Regarding the moderating role of individual differences, the data showed that the link between team learning and self-efficacy was stronger for individuals scoring high (versus low) on masculinity orientation. However, the results revealed no empirical evidence to confirm the hypothesis that employees scoring low on uncertainty avoidance will perceive a stronger relationship between team learning and self-efficacy.
