Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to apply an existing self-leadership theory to goal-setting theory in order to propose a mechanism to enhance the effectiveness of individual goal performance. An integral part of self-leadership is the concept of thought self-leadership (TSL). This perspective suggests that individuals can influence themselves by utilizing specific cognitive strategies. This article develops a cognitive explanation of how TSL can enhance individual goal performance.
