Tapping into the power of research often requires us to go beyond where we currently are and this often means stretching beyond who we think we are and what we think we might be capable of.
I know from my own involvement in the Coaching Presence Research that my participation in this international research project provided the opportunity to dive, boots and all, into a robust process of learning that has revitalised my coaching in ways I hadn’t anticipated. It has enabled me to cultivate more flexibility, creativity and presence in my coaching, as well as providing the opportunity to collaborate and work with a group of extraordinary coaches from around the world. In addition to all of that it has also supported me to work towards the attainment of my Professional Coach Credential (PCC), something that would have been easy to give up on without the structure and commitment involved in signing up so publicly to this research project.
The Coaching Science Practitioners’ Alliance is offering a research grant to help fund a coaching research project that has a high social return on investment and is focused on coaching process. The grant being offered will be up to EUR 2,000 and selection will take place by December 31, 2020.

And if you want to learn more about coaching research and why it’s important – why not order a copy of our book “THE COACHING SCIENCE PRACTITIONER HANDBOOK”. This book is based on the real-life experience of the researcher, the coaches and clients involved in an International Research Project that looked at Coaching Presence.
