Perturbations in the coaching world and how research can help
The disturbances of the world do not pass coaching field unnoticed. They manifest in quite specific concerns that affect our profession and everyone who cares about it. We need to understand the external mechanisms that give rise to these 'perturbations' and particularly our internal tendencies that contribute to them, so we can mitigate what depends on us. Those who attend this conference have a disposition not to give in to obstacles. They ask very difficult questions, try to capture what is salient to the field and look for practical ways to make a difference. In this talk we will discuss what kind of research can help right now and what it takes to do such research.
