The world’s first Coaching Psychology Unit was established by Anthony Grant and Michael Cavanagh at the University of Sydney in 2000. The Coaching Psychology Unit remains a leading institution in coaching research, education and practice to this day. The work of Tony Grant and the team at the University of Sydney has had a significant impact on the field of coaching science. The coaching psychology unit’s prolific research output has included hundreds of papers, keynotes and conference presentations, making many of the most important innovations in the development of coaching and coaching practice internationally. They are also one of the pre-eminent institutes of coaching education, having established several post-graduate coaching degree programs, producing over a thousand graduates.
Earlier this year, Professor Anthony Grant, then director of the coaching unit, passed away leaving both a gap in the field of coaching and an impressive legacy of scholarly work. Tony’s work and contribution to the field of coaching have been highly recognized with multiple awards internationally. Sean O’Connor and Michael Cavanagh continue the pioneering work of the Coaching Psychology Unit. During this webinar they will highlight 20 years of research and contribution the Coaching Psychology Unit has made to the field of coaching psychology, as well as highlighting new research and directions currently underway to meet the changing needs of our world.
