Abstract :

This paper discusses a cross-sectional survey, carried out by the authors, with data from 410 employees employed in cement and power manufacturing organisations in North India, to determine if emotional maturity factors have positive relationship with personal effectiveness in Indian context. This study uses broaden-and-build theory as theoretical framework to investigate the proposed relationship. The sample data was collected through convenience sampling method and a cross-sectional survey-based research design was employed. A paper-pencil survey was administered for this purpose by distributing a total of 476 questionnaires during office hours. However, only 410 responses were considered for final analysis using confirmatory factor analysis and multiple hierarchical regression analysis. Results reveal that emotional maturity factors (i.e., emotional stability, social adjustment and personality integration) are positively associated with personal effectiveness. This study fully supports the applicability of broaden-and-build theory in explaining the proposed relationships in Indian context. This study offers advanced insights on the proposed relationship that has not been examined till now, and serves as a potential policy guideline for personal effectiveness in understudied non-US cultures like India. The findings of this study enrich the literature on personal effectiveness from broaden-and-build theory perspective. Byline: Nagendra Singh Nehra, Santosh Rangnekar
