Evidence-Based Practice - Resource Toolkit

 

"If coaching is to continue to grow and develop, if we as coaches are to deliver coaching and coaching methodologies that are genuinely effective for our clients, then we need to be au fait with the coaching literature and the body of research that informs effective coaching practice. In short, we need to engage in evidence-based coaching." Grant & O'Connor, 2019

 

Grant and O'Connor describes a framework for categorising research.

 

This page provides you with a literature resource using this framework. It consists of coaching-specific and coaching-related sources, of both strong and weaker evidence.

The framework below is aligned to, and adapted from the Research Relevance-to-Coaching Practice Model, discussed in Grant, A.M. & O'Connor, S. (2019). A brief primer for those new to coaching research and evidence-based practice. The Coaching Psychologist, 15(1), 3-10.

"Coaching-related research includes research that is not specifically focused on coaching but produces information that could be used in coaching practice or might indirectly inform coaching practice."
