Abstract:On behalf of Bureau Zuidema research has been conducted into the appreciation of the training Inzicht in Invloed®. The purpose of this thesis is to explain the difference in appreciation between open and in-company offered training courses. A second objective was to gain insight into the relationship between regulatory focus and training effects. Through a pre-and post-test at 134 participants it has been examined whether a promotion focus or a prevention focus is more conspicuously present at the start of the training. It is examined how this focus affects self-efficacy, work engagement and job satisfaction. The results show that no significant differences were found between the groups of the open and in-company offered training courses. An important finding of this study is that both participants of the open and in-company offered training courses show an increase in promotion focus and a decrease in prevention focus. In addition, it appears that after training both participants have a higher general self-efficacy and are more engaged in their work than before the training. With regard to the regulatory focus it has been found that participants who have a saliently higher promotion focus have a higher degree of general self-efficacy and are more engaged and satisfied about their work compared to participants who have a more saliently prevention focus. This study has also revealed that participants who have a higher general self-efficacy are more engaged and satisfied about their work compared to participants with a low general self-efficacy. The main conclusion is that no significant differences have been found between the open and in-company offered trainingcourses, but that the training Inzicht in Invloed® causes an increase in promotion focus and a decrease in prevention focus. This implies that after participating in the training there is an increase of focus aimed at growth (promotion focus) and a decrease of a focus aimed at safety (prevention focus).
