Distinguished Professional Contributions Award: Performance Management—What Works and What Doesn’t

The literature and popular HR press is filled with performance management best practices. Yet for all the research and practice devoted to it, performance management remains the Achilles heel of human capital management. This talk will focus on commonly advocated best practices and what it really takes to implement them effectively.

27-1 Advantages of Differential Validity Analyses Over Differential Prediction Analyses

I-O psychology has strongly endorsed differential prediction analyses over differential validity analyses. This paper offers a conceptual argument for both limitations of differential prediction analyses and practical benefits of differential validity analyses when the specific research question is whether the magnitude of the test-criterion relationship differs between subgroups.

28-2 Employee Coaching Relationships: Enhancing Construct Clarity and Measurement

This paper seeks to further our understanding of employee coaching by exploring the coaching relationship formed between supervisors and subordinates. Specifically, we seek to better define the constructs of employee coaching and the employee coaching relationship and to develop a measure of the perceived quality of the coaching relationship.

28-3 Taming the Wild West: A Control Theory Approach to Coaching

This manuscript demonstrates how control theories (CT) can be used to advise executive coaching practice. Focusing on negative feedback loops consisting of goals and feedback, the authors suggest that coaching affects motivational processes that can be explained by CT. Recommendations for coaches are provided throughout the manuscript.

28-8 Psychological Health Effects of Supervisory Pressure to Behave Unethically

We investigated relationships between supervisory pressure to behave unethically (PBU) and subordinates’ psychological distress and problem drinking. Results from a 2-wave study of 395 employees supported the prediction that subordinates’ psychological distress mediates the relationship between supervisory PBU and subordinates’ drinking; this mediated effect is buffered by subordinates’ core self-evaluations.

28-14 Effects of Transformational Leadership on Follower Self-Efficacy and Self-Esteem

Follower self-efficacy and self-esteem are key mechanisms through which leadership-based effects are realized. Supporting this idea, meta-analytic results are presented that indicate that transformational leadership has significant relationships with follower self-efficacy and self-esteem, and transactional leadership has significant relationships with follower self-efficacy. Support for moderating effects was also found.

28-20 Environmentally Specific Transformational Leadership, Modeling, and Subordinates’ Pro-Environmental Behaviors

This study linked leadership to subordinates’ environmental behaviors. The model demonstrated that leaders’ subjective norms predicted their environmentally specific transformational leadership and environmental behaviors, which in turn indirectly predicted subordinates’ environmental behavior. In addition, leaders’ environmental behaviors predicted subordinates’ environmental behaviors. The effects of environmental-specific versus general transformational leadership were examined.
