As Iron Sharpens Iron: A mentoring approach to labour market integration for humanitarian migrants

<p>Integration of humanitarian migrants into the labour market is crucial for the long-term success of EU Member States. Previous research suggests that mentoring may be a viable labor market integration strategy. This paper tests the impact of mentoring among Arabic speaking humanitarian migrants in Germany, Greece and Italy. Results show that respondents who were mentored exhibited an increased probability of being employed, particularly when there was an educational component to the mentoring or when meaningful interpersonal connections were formed. This study provides first-hand evidence that mentoring promotes gainful employment as well as elucidates the pathways of its success.</p>

Team Coaching: A thematic analysis of methods used by external coaches in a work domain

<p>This paper aims to provide insight into the methods being used by external team coaches in the workplace, the need for which is highlighted by the sparsity of team coaching research in Executive Coaching literature. It is important that we better understand team coaching practice, in order to provide much needed validation and clarity. Thematic Analysis was used to identify methods used by six experienced external team coaches, practising in UK, USA and Australia. Results suggest that three philosophies determine the methods used, and methods are utilised for three main purposes. Significant support was found for previous research.</p>

What happens in group supervision? Exploring current practice in Australia

<p>This article presents qualitative findings from a study of seven group coaching supervisors and 57 coaches participating in those groups. The purpose of the research was to further explore why people seek group supervision, what benefits they derive, and how group supervision works. Supervisors and coaches recognised the role of the supervisor in bringing together the right mix of coaches, in establishing and maintaining a clear working agreement, managing a clear process, and role modelling appropriate behaviours. A possible discrepancy in perspective between supervisors and coaches was observed, specifically the extent to which all participants adopt a systemic perspective.</p>

Breaking Grad: Building Resilience Among a Sample of Graduate Students Struggling with Stress and Anxiety via a Peer Coaching Model – An 8-Month Pilot Study

<p>This mixed methods, 8-month pilot study investigated graduate students’ (n = 11) experiences in <em>Breaking Grad</em>, a peer coaching program derived from mentorship, motivational interviewing, and Co-Active Life Coaching. Offered to address stress and anxiety, while enhancing resilience, participants’ psychosocial experiences of the program were assessed via individual semi-structured interviews and validated questionnaires at pre-, mid-, and immediate post-intervention. Qualitatively, participants viewed the intervention as positively impacting their ability to cope with stress and anxiety and enhancing resilience. Quantitatively, one-way, repeated-measures ANOVAs indicated no statistical significance. The qualitative findings are encouraging. This intervention should be assessed with a larger sample.</p>

Migrant mentoring to work: defining an old-but-innovative instrument

<p>Despite numerous labour market interventions to address the large unemployment gap, migrants struggle to find work in their host societies. In an effort to address this, an alternative and innovative intervention is ‘mentoring to work’. This paper attempts to create a sense of conceptual clarity on mentoring to work by delineating a clear definition of the field and its scope as a policy tool for migrant employment. This concept analysis is based on scientific literature and further refined in consultation with practitioners through an iterative process of consultation and adaptation. The definition also provides a solid starting point for further empirical research in this field.</p>

Communication Modalities and their Perceived Effectiveness in Coaching for Individuals with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

<p>Coaching for individuals with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), an emerging coaching subspecialty, has demonstrated efficacy both as a stand alone behavioral support and as part of multimodal interventions. Little research to date has examined processes involved in ADHD coaching. This mixed-methods study: (1) reviewed extant literature on ADHD coaching outcomes for coaching communication modalities used; and (2) surveyed ADHD coaches to explore (a) frequency of use and perceived efficacy of varied modalities and (b) coaches' views of benefits and drawbacks of each. Results provide a preliminary suggestion of the effectiveness of varied communication approaches and suggest directions for future research.</p>

The role of coaching and coach language in clients’ language and individual change

<p>This study explored the under-researched area of the effect of coaching on clients’ spoken and internal language, the link to individual change, as well as the effect of coach language on client language. Using a qualitative, phenomenological approach, 12 in-depth interviews were conducted with coaches, and clients who were business leaders. The findings, derived through thematic analysis suggest that coaching plays a role in changing clients’ language and that this language change may be linked to individual change. Furthermore, coach language and linguistic techniques are instrumental in client language change.</p>

Mentoring and Career Satisfaction Among Emerging Nurse Scholars

<p>The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between mentoring and career satisfaction among emerging nurse scholars currently pursuing, or who have acquired a doctorate in nursing within the last 10 years. This study used a descriptive correlational research design to determine the relationship among career development mentoring, psychosocial role mentoring, mentoring satisfaction, and career satisfaction among emerging nurse scholars. The findings were that mentors who provide career development and psychosocial role functions in the mentoring relationship, can assist their mentee to develop professionally, have a satisfying relationship with their mentor, and have an increase in career satisfaction.</p>
