Research Community

The Institute of Coaching has a mission of supporting high quality research in coaching and connecting researchers to exchange ideas, collaborate and plan joint research projects. We offer many opportunities and platforms for catalyzing connections and collaborations.

To connect with fellow researchers and identify their area of focus, visit our Membership site.

To access many resources, examples of published empirical and theoretical work in coaching visit the Resource database. It includes full text papers from Coaching: An International Journal of Theory, Research, and Practice, International Journal of Evidence-Based Coaching and Mentoring, Leadership Quarterly, The Journal of Positive Psychology.

To view the research conducted by the Harnisch scholars, through grants from the Institute of Coaching, visit the Harnisch Researchers and Featured Research pages, as well as our Resource database which contains the final grant reports written by the scholars.

In 2015 we also started publishing a Research Digest, sponsored by Meyer-Campbell. The Research Digest features abstracts from selected, as well as links to papers when available, published in leading journals including Coaching: An International Journal of Theory, Research, and Practice, International Journal of Evidence-Based Coaching and Mentoring, Leadership Quarterly, The Journal of Positive Psychology and Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research (APA).
