I am an ICF PCC Coach with a passion for wellbeing in the workplace. I invite coaches to take part in a study to explore it in depth. The question is whether “any formal workplace coaching” will improve resilience and wellbeing.
Why undertake this research?
Mental health, staff resilience and wellbeing are rising up the global agenda, providing a huge opportunity for coaching. I myself noticed in my clients, that whatever the topic, multiple resilient traits, including sleep and activity were increasing through coaching. As such, clients found this to be a “side-benefit” and excited me to conduct deeper research. This work is relevant to coaches and organisations considering coaching, in choosing which methods to adopt (or not) when it comes to supporting workforce wellbeing.
Why would you want to participate in coaching research?
And why in the research run by Sheela Hobden PCC?
Because you are curious about the impact of coaching on resilience and wellbeing, and even more interested that it might bring unexpected benefits like improved sleep and levels of activity (yes, it really could be!).
AND because you understand that unless we coaches assume responsibility for how we build our knowledge base, we will not be taken seriously for long. We need substance to all the things we believe as coaches. Who are we as coaches and what are we capable of in service of our clients? Let us find out more together.
What is your involvement as a coach?
- Onboard one client, a new assignment to you and engage in workplace coaching on any topic
- Hold at least 5 coaching sessions, of at least an hour with each client
- Engage in workplace coaching on any topic
- Invite your client to anonymously respond to surveys (15 mins each) pre, during and post the coaching
- Complete the same surveys yourself, as a coach
You are invited to take part in a research project, to build the evidence base for coaching.
You will be able to:
- Contribute to the coaching evidence base on wellbeing in workplace settings
- Claim 10 CCEs (from the MOT4U model)
- Gain early access to the findings, reflect your own learning, and discuss sessions in an evidence-based setting
Who can take part?
- Credentialed/accredited coaches* e.g. EMCC, AC, ICF with at least 100 hours experience, who are accessing regular supervision
- Internal and external workplace coaches
