How do Coaches Learn and Develop? Research based sharing

July 24, 2024
07:00am to 08:00am ET
07:00pm to 08:00pm SG/MY

A study conducted by Prof. Bob Garvey, Prof. David Clutterbuck, Dr. Alexandra Barosa-Pereira, Dr. Stephen Burt, Dr. Duminda Rajasinghe, Wendy-Ann Smith, Zoltán Csigás & Elle Griffin, suggests that the competency driven approaches to coach development do not serve coaches very well as it fails to recognise the centrality of reflexive practice and diversity of experiences and activities that enable coaches to develop.

The research findings suggest that a more holistic approach to coach development and subjectivity of myriads of experiences and activities enable coaches to develop. This qualitative study was conducted by a team of coaching researchers and practitioners by interviewing thirty-two experienced coaches dispersed internationally (e.g Australia, UK, USA, India, Brazil, Germany). They employed an innovative approach informed by Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) as our research methodology and developed a deeper understanding of how experienced coaches learn and develop.

In this session, they will share the research findings. They aim to develop curiosity, challenge current understanding of coach development and encourage further research and reflection on the topic.
