PILLAY, Daphne; NEL, Petrus  e  VAN ZYL, Ebben. Positive affect and resilience: Exploring the role of self-efficacy and self-regulation. A serial mediation model. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2022, vol.48, n.1, pp.1-12. ISSN 2071-0763.

ORIENTATION: Resilience has become an invaluable asset for female leaders in higher education given the numerous barriers they have to overcome. Despite this, leadership development programmes tend to overlook the importance of resilience enhancing factors when offering support interventions for female leadersRESEARCH PURPOSE: This study explores the role of psychological resources such as positive affect, self-efficacy and self-regulation and the processes between them that explain resilienceMOTIVATION FOR THE STUDY: Understanding how psychological resources can work independently and through each other to influence resilience, can prove beneficial for higher education institutions. This information can be used to design female leadership support programmes that enhance the appropriate psychological resources, which may assist with increasing resilienceRESEARCH APPROACH/DESIGN AND METHOD: This study employed a cross-sectional survey design with a non-probability sample of female leaders (n = 255) across multiple higher education institutions in South Africa. Mplus was used to determine the goodness-of-fit associated with the different constructs. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 27 and PROCESS macro by Hayes were used to conduct a series of statistical tests, including serial mediation analysisMAIN FINDINGS: Although the relationship between positive affect and resilience was mediated by self-efficacy and self-regulation (individually and in serial), positive affect had a positive association with resilience independent of the three indirect effectsPRACTICAL/MANAGERIAL IMPLICATIONS: Higher education institutions can strengthen the resilience of female leaders through interventions that utilise positive affect, self-efficacy and self-regulationCONTRIBUTION/VALUE-ADDITION: This study contributes towards research on the role of psychological resources in the context of female leadership and aims to explain the processes that may influence resilience
