Coaching Content Research
A project to understand empirically the content of coaching engagements and how they develop.
Coaching Content Research is a research study carried out by the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies at Oxford Brookes Business School and funded by the Institute of Coaching (Belmont, MA, USA).
We would like to understand what content themes are discussed in coaching sessions in an organisational setting and the patterns in how these themes develop through the course of a coaching engagement.
You are invited to take part in the research study. Before you decide whether or not to take part, it is important for you to understand why the research is being done and what it will involve. Please read ‘Why take part‘ and take time to read the participant information carefully.
If after reading the information about the research, you choose to take part, please first register on the site (there is a link at the foot of the ‘Why take part page’, or you can click on the ‘Login’ button above). Once registered we ask you to recall and record the topics of discussion of your most recent coaching engagements at three natural key review points (beginning, middle, and end). You can answer the questions about each session as they occur, and you can also record answers for a session that has already taken place (based on your reflective notes or session records). Whatever you record will be useful even if you are not sure you remember it completely accurately. We have extended data input beyond the original 24th June 2020 due to the disruption of Covid-19. PLEASE CONTINUE TO INPUT DATA. You can revisit the survey at any time and you can choose to record data relating to up to three coaching engagements. You will have a login to this site so that you can update your own records, but all data will be anonymised.
