Self-Improvement Interventions and their Effects on Employee Well-Being, Performance, and Cooperation
01 / 2010 - onbekend
Performance evaluations play an increasingly important role in the governance of modern organizations, and personal effectiveness becomes an integral part of such evaluations, not only for managers, but also for non-supervisory personnel. This is also reflected in the growing number of training programs to improve "leadership effectiveness", time management, and personal effectiveness. However, scientific evidence concerning the underlying mechanisms as well as the intended and unintended consequences of specific self-improvement interventions is still rare. The aim of this study is to explain how the implementation of interventions designed to improve the functioning of individuals and work-groups affects employee well-being, performance and cooperation in organizations. A repeated measures cluster randomized control trial and several experiments will be conducted to assess the impact of self-improvement interventions within the organizational context.
