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>

Assessing contracting and the coaching relationship: Necessary infrastructure?

<p>While the criticality of a strong coach-client relationship has received significant attention, this study represents one of the few investigations of coach behaviours that impact the relationship. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, we explore "contracting", defined as the collaborative determination of logistics, parameters and framework of the coaching engagement, as an important foundation for an effective relationship. We create a preliminary measure, the Contracting Inventory Scale, and investigate contracting’s connection to the coach-client relationship. Additionally, we explore executives’ perspectives on contracting as "infrastructure", a behavior that is necessary, but by itself does not lead to great outcomes, and discuss implications, noting that this study provides a platform for future empirical work and useful information for coaching practice.</p>

The value of strategic mentorship in park and recreation agencies

<p>The purpose of this study was to identify the benefits of a systematic mentorship programme using a recreational agency as the case study. Demographic information was used to understand the current state of recreation agencies and this resulted in utilising a systematic mentoring process to address a lack diversity and inclusion in their membership agencies and communities, with the intended purpose of improving the effectiveness of park and recreation agencies.  An example of a systematic mentorship programme is a 3-person cohort programme that facilitates the exchange of knowledge and experience between each member of the cohort. The benefit of this mentorship approach is to engage in discussions to strategically address and provide recommendations related to diversity and inclusion.</p>

The meaning of peer group mentoring in the university context

<p>Peer mentoring is commonly used for didactical and learning purposes. In this study we examine peer group mentoring in the university context. The aim is to promote understanding of peer group mentoring based on a meta-analysis of two primary studies: teacher students and teacher group tutors. As a result, three core categories were found: 1) Individual’s participation in the group, 2) Professional development with others and 3) Community enabling sharing and development. These were hierarchically organized and there are critical aspects placed in between the core categories. Professional and personal experiences intertwine to enhance participants’ self-understanding and professional development.</p>

From "blind elation" to "oh my goodness, what have I gotten into"… Exploring the experience of executive coaching during leadership transitions into C-suite roles

<p>A promotion to a more senior role brings an exciting yet challenging period in a leader's career. Using an interpretative phenomenological methodology, this study explores the experiences of six leaders who received coaching during recent transitions into C-suite roles (Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) and direct reports) within global corporate organisations. Leaders experienced significant change, challenge and emotional turmoil. They valued the coaching, which led to lasting benefits in terms of confidence, capabilities and strengthened identity. In a nascent research landscape, results advocate the benefits of coaching, highlighting aspects of value, success factors and areas where further research is needed.</p>
