Abstract: The present study aimed to investigate the relation of collective efficacy and team outcomes, including team performance and team satisfaction. This study also examined team processes as a mediator between collective efficacy and team outcomes. Research has shown a positive linear relation between collective efficacy and performance; however, recent findings have alluded to excessive efficacy as being detrimental to team performance. Survey methodology was used to assess two samples of university class teams. Results indicated a positive linear relation between collective efficacy and team performance perceptions and satisfaction. Additionally, team processes mediated the relation between collective efficacy and team performance perceptions and satisfaction. No relation was found between collective efficacy and team grades, the objective performance measure. The findings provide further empirical evidence for the benefits of collective efficacy on team outcomes and provides evidence for team processes as an explanatory mechanism.
