Insight events in coaching sessions

<p>There is little research available that describes or gives a picture of what happens in a coaching session. This paper provides a view of the events containing insight within coaching sessions. Using the lived experiences of six coach/client dyads, themes emerged as to the structure of the significant moment and wider events, before, during and after insight manifestation. Approached from a critical realist underpinning synergised with a relativist empirical methodology, this research suggests that there is a coming together of both coach and client in a shared, mirrored and physiological moment.</p>

Client-led coaching? First-time coaching clients’ experience

<p>This study investigates lived experiences of first-time coaching clients.  Three clients of business coaching shared how they experienced their coachee role.  Data was collected via participant-produced collage and in-depth interviews these visual and narrative data were analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis methodology to understand first-time client experiences.  The coachee role embodies expression of the individuality of the client. Clients adopt an adaptive construct of learner role, employing both pedagogic and adult-learning concepts.  Although unaware of their influence at the time of coaching, clients used the role of speaker to manage the narrative and to keep themselves psychologically safe.</p>

How Shadow Coaching helps Leaders to Improve their Performance on the Job in Real-Time

<p>Self-awareness is critical for leadership success. It not only builds and strengthens leadership skills, it also supports leaders’ creativity and innovation and helps increase the self-awareness of those around the leaders. This study, used the qualitative research approach Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) to gain rich and in-depth knowledge of the lived experience of eleven leaders being shadow coached, a coaching intervention where coaches join clients in their work environment and help them to increase their performance on the spot. Leaders found that shadow coaching not only increased their self-awareness within a very short time frame, it also showed there was instant positive change in their attitude and leadership approach. </p>

How could a 3-step coaching model help executives handle workplace conflict?

<p>Relationship conflict at work is common and can have substantial negative effects for individual wellbeing and organisational productivity. A literature review identified a lack of empirically-evidenced conflict coaching models. This Action Research study developed a 3-step coaching model and evaluated its usefulness to three private sector executives. The model helped executives develop self-awareness, other-awareness, conflict communication skills and emotional management skills, which were found to be necessary to manage conflict effectively.  Organisational restructuring and email communication were identified as conflict triggers. These findings have value for executives, organisations, executive coaches and their supervisors. </p>

Coaching during late career reinvention – The Discovering Model

<p>Most of us will be living and working longer, but what if we want to do something very different during the later years of our working life? Research suggests that workers face unique issues in their late career, yet there is little formal research into career coaching experiences and implications for practice. Using grounded theory methodology, data was analysed from fourteen participants, (seven individuals who had reinvented their late career and seven coaches with extensive experience). Three main features emerged and form the basis of a practitioner model presented here. Potential implications for coaches have also been identified.</p>

Experiences of receiving career coaching via Skype: An interpretative phenomenological analysis

<p>Research on video-mediated coaching is sparse, with literature on video-mediated communication in general and different aspects of technology-assisted coaching existing. Therefore the qualitative study researches the question "What is the impact of the camera in Skype coaching on coachees’ experience of being coached?", taking a constructivist epistemological stance and employing the methodology of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis as developed by Smith from the late 1990s. It aims to provide a better understanding of the coachee's lived experience of being coached in a camera mediated encounter.</p>

Awareness and use of motivational interviewing reported by Canadian university sport coaches

<p>Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a communication strategy to facilitate behaviour change yet MI research in sport is scant.  This study investigated awareness and use of MI by coaches in Canadian university sport using a non-experimental design. Less than one-third of the male (30.2%) and one-quarter of the female (20.0%) coaches reported awareness of MI with a similar pattern noted for male (32.0%) and female (25.8%) coaches’ reported use of MI.  No sex-based differences in MI awareness and use were evident (p's &gt; .05). Overall, low awareness and use of MI reported by coaches have implications for designing coach education programs.</p>
