In all 545 executive coaches completed a number of tests online which assessed their dark-triad, trait emotional intelligence, self-monitoring traits as well as measures of perceived career satisfaction and perceived coaching effectiveness. We tested twelve hypotheses concerning direct and mediated effects of the three individual difference variables on the two outcome variables. Emotional intelligence and Narcissism were most closely related to self-rated efficacy while Machiavellianism and Psychopathy was most closely associated with career satisfaction. Limitations and implications are noted as well as recommendations for practice.
