Abstract

PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine the mediating role of team and individual reflexivity in linking managerial coaching with individual learning.Design/methodology/approachData obtained from 506 individuals in 98 engineering teams in the automobile and electronic industries were used to investigate specific hypotheses.FindingsThe results indicated that managerial coaching directly influenced team learning and individual learning, team reflexivity acted as substantial mediator for the relationship between managerial coaching and team learning, as well as the relationship between managerial coaching and individual reflexivity and team reflexivity and individual reflexivity co-acted each other as mediators for the relationship between managerial coaching and individual learning.Research limitations/implicationsAs the subjects of this study were engineering teams in which tasks are interdependent, there is a possibility that the task trait may have affected the results.Practical implicationsManagers should recognize the importance of collectively reflective activities in promoting both individual and team learning. Facilitating coaching skills are indispensable to enhance reflexivity within teams.Originality/valueThis study extends prior research by demonstrating the mediating role of team and individual reflexivity as mediators in linking managerial coaching to team and individual learning, which has never been investigated in previous studies.
