  • Abstract 

    The present study aimed to examine the effects of managerial coaching on job performance and team commitment as well as to investigate the mediating effect of psychological capital. This study adopted a convenient sampling method by selecting the employees of local Taiwanese enterprises as research subjects. To avoid common method variances, this study utilized two sets of questionnaires: one designed for supervisors and the other for employees. The results of structural equation modeling (SEM) showed that managerial coaching had significant effects on both job performance and team commitment. The results also indicated that the relationships between managerial coaching and job performance and between managerial coaching and team commitment were significantly mediated by psychological capital. Conclusions, practical implications, and directions for future research were also discussed and provided.
