Although organizations frequently use teams, few studies have systematically examined training methods designed to improve collective efficacy and team performance. As such, the primary purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of verbal self‐guidance (VSG) training, adapted from Meichenbaum (1975,1977), on collective efficacy and team performance. Using a quasi‐experimental design, undergraduate students (n= 184) were assigned to 42 teams. These 42 teams were assigned to 2 training conditions (verbal self‐guidance/comparison). Results revealed that verbal self‐guidance had a main effect on collective efficacy and performance. Collective efficacy was found to mediate the VSG training‐performance relationship; it also correlated significantly with both team performance and the use of verbal guidance skills.
