    High-tech or High-touch? Behind the Scenes of Coaching Outcomes Research - Dr Angela Passarelli

    How does the mode of communication affect coaching outcomes? This talk provides a behind-the-scenes look at research design decisions made to answer this question via a randomized field experiment involving leaders from five organizations. Results of the study will be shared with a focus on lessons learned and key insights for conducting field experiments and outcomes research in executive coaching.

    Workplace Coaching Research - Charted and Uncharted Territories - Dr Gil Bozer

    In this talk I aim to briefly present the state of play in workplace coaching research. I draw a ‘map’ of the current research on workplace coaching by synthesizing the findings of systematic literature reviews and meta-analytic studies published during the last decade. First, I chart the ‘most traveled’ territories by introducing an integrated framework of workplace coaching that describes the key outcomes as well as the input, process, and contextual factors associated with effective coaching. Secondly, I outline key theoretical concepts that have emerged in contemporary coaching research and are supported by relevant theoretical frameworks in related and more-established scientific fields such as psychotherapy, learning, training, and leadership. I conclude with offering recommendations for future workplace coaching research, building on the ‘untraveled’ or least-traversed territories highlighted in the systematic literature reviews, meta-analyses, and recent advances in workplace coaching research.
