dc.description.abstractThe aim of the study was to investigate how the expression of emotions (specifically pride and shame) by a coach when providing feedback could impact upon the performance of a footballer when completing a passing test. Due to the lack of research into the interpersonal effects of emotional expression on performance, the study was designed to answer the call of Van Kleef (2007) into investigating the effects of coaches’ emotional expressions. 18 male football players aged from 18 to 21 (Mean = 19) participated in the study by completing a passing test (Loughborough Soccer Passing Test) twice, whilst receiving feedback from their coach in-between each performance. When providing the feedback about their first performance, the coach either expressed pride or shame. Results showed that there was no significant difference in the performance time differences of pride (Mean = - 2.9, SD = 6.8) and shame (Mean = 0.4, SD = 4.7) feedback conditions (t15 = -1.136, p = 0.274, p > 0.05). Additionally, the results found there to be no significant difference in penalty time differences of pride (Mean = - 5.8, SD = 8.9) and shame (Mean = 2.3, SD = 9.3) feedback conditions (t15 = -1.818, p = 0.089, p > 0.05). Finally, results identified no significant difference in the average overall performance time differences of pride (Mean -6.1, SD = 10.3) and shame (Mean = 2.8, SD = 10.6) feedback conditions (t15 = -1.745, p = 0.101, p > 0.05). The findings are discussed in relation to previous research, along with their implications to coaches, sport performers and sport psychologists.en_US
