    Abstract

    The purpose of the current study was to identify putative antecedents and consequencesassociated with self-efficacy, other-efficacy, and relation-inferred self-efficacy,within the context of elite coach-athlete dyads. Semistructured interviews wereconducted with each member of six international-level coach-athlete partnerships,and data were analyzed using inductive and deductive content analytic techniques.Results for both athletes and coaches demonstrated that the above ‘tripartite efficacybeliefs’ (cf. Lent & Lopez, 2002) were identified as originating from perceptionsregarding oneself, inferences regarding the ‘other’ dyad member (e.g., the athlete’scoach), as well as the dyad as a whole. Results also revealed that the tripartite efficacyconstructs were interrelated, and independently associated with a number of positivetask-related and relationship-oriented consequences. Findings are considered in relationto developing and sustaining effective coach-athlete relationships at the elitelevel.
