Webinar: Deepening the Science of Coaching: How to Use Your Coaching Skills to Conduct Research

How to Use Your Coaching Skills to Conduct Research
May 18, 2020 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Today's top notch coaches need to not only KNOW the latest evidence-based practices and scientific underpinnings of effective coaching, they should jump in and participate in building this growing body of knowledge.  Being a practitioner — researcher — is a powerful way to leverage your expertise, contribute to the profession, and grow your reputation in the field.

Based on the highly respected new book Coaching and mentoring research: A practical guide, this webinar will provide coaches an introduction to bringing the best practices of research into their work. Based on 20 years of conducting and supervising research, as well as membership on the IOC Scientific Advisory Committee, Dr Oades and co-authors distill key issues, tips and methods for new or part-time coaching researchers into a practical guide. Using a coaching approach, including the GROW framework, this volume breaks down the key steps of the research process, enabling you to use your existing coaching skills to leverage, learn and conduct research to deepen the scientific base of your practice — and the profession.

In this interactive webinar you will learn to:

  • Identify the key aspects of the research process relevant to needs of coaching and mentoring researchers
  • Apply your current coaching skills in the process of scoping and conducting research
  • Analyze and decipher best practices based on real-life examples of coaching research
