A Study on Locus of Control and Its Impact on Employees' Performance
Abstract: Internal or external locus of control plays an important role for an individual to sustain the efficacy and usefulness of learning performance. The knowledge and experiences gained by the person by means of organizational learning are a vital factor in increasing their performance. In this context, it is necessary for organizations to fulfill learning function in an arrangement and to use this function oriented to the improvement of the person. Many studies have determined whether employees have the internal or external locus of control; furthermore, which locus of control they possess in the learning period. The individuals, who have the internal locus of control, think that they have a big role on affecting the events which influence their lives. Furthermore, they assess themselves as possessing the power for the attitude they want to display by having the positive ego concept, and they believe that they can direct their lives whatever way they desire. It is believed that decision makers proneness to rely on mechanical decision aids and results indicate that decision makers with an external locus of control appear to rely more on given aids than those with an internal locus of control.
