Possible topics include:

  • What are the various forms of coaching being practiced and how are they similar to and/or different fromJABS_v50_72ppiRGB_powerpoint other forms of helping relationships?
  • What are the factors that lead to high quality coaching relationships?
  • How does coaching influence individual effectiveness and/or well-being and organizational effectiveness?
  • What are the roles of external versus internal coaches in organizations and how do coaches of each type differentially influence individual and organizational effectiveness?
  • What factors (e.g., relationship quality, meeting frequency, duration of relationship, etc.) have the greatest impact on coaching effectiveness?
  • Does the mode of coaching (i.e., face-to-face, telephone, Skype, etc.) have an impact on the quality of the coaching relationship and/or effectiveness of the coaching?
