Abstract [en]

Previous research have shown that self-efficacy is one of the most important personal resources in the work context. But because the first and foremost self-efficacy examined in organizations to date is cognitive and task oriented little is known about social and emotional self-efficacy at work. The aim of the present study was to investigate social and emotional dimensions of self-efficacy at work. Items to measure social and self- and other oriented emotional self-efficacy at work were developed and validated and confirmatory analyses on questionnaire data from 226 Swedish and 591 German employees revealed that they were well differentiated from cognitive task-oriented occupational self-efficacy items. Emotional self-efficacy explained additional variance in emotional irritation and emotional exhaustion, and social self-efficacy in team climate and commitment, over and above effects of occupational self-efficacy. Swedish participants reported higher than German participants on all self-efficacy dimensions. Men reported higher occupational self-efficacy, whereas women reported toward higher other-oriented emotional self-efficacy. The scales have strong psychometric properties in both Swedish and German language versions, which can give valuable tools for practical settings such as staff development, team-building or other training programs. Next step will be to study how social and emotional self-efficacy at work relates to health and well-being over time.
