If you are a professional coach who wants to conduct real-world coaching research, I offer a supportive partnership as a mentor to help you plan, implement, reflect on and learn from your research in practice.

Our learning partnership can take place in a variety of venues, based on your interests and needs:

  • University course work: At the School of Management, University of Texas, Dallas, I teach Research Practices for Coaches (EC306), an online synchronous class that provides an introduction to the basic principles of coaching and action learning. Graduate credit is available for this course. I also offer "Using Case Study for Coaches", through the university.
  • Individual research mentoring: In twice-monthly calls, I provide guidance and encouragement on research projects from initiation through write-up. As your learning partner, we will consider research methods, data-gathering protocols, documentation and clarify the meaning of the data you gather. Mentoring may also include helping you identify further resources and networking with others in the field of coaching research.
  • Group research mentoring: I use a collaborative action-learning approach to help small groups of coaching researchers (maximum of 6) learn from their own and others research processes.

In twice-monthly meetings, group members present the status and outcomes to date of research in progress, get constructive group feedback and engage in learning, reflection and planning next steps.

Mentoring groups meet for 12 weeks via bridge-line. Groups are initiated based on interest. Cohort groups can be arranged on request.
