EBC Thought Leaders Series
Since completing her own coach training in 2006, Penny has been fascinated by coaches’ consistent descriptions of their coach training as “transformational” – regardless of which program they attended. In her doctoral research and experiences as a coaching instructor, Penny continues to ask, “What is inherently transformational about becoming a coach, and what is the nature of these transformations?”
Many have suggested that coaches can facilitate adult development. However, one overlooked area of scholarship is the coach and the complex process of becoming a coach. In this presentation, Penny will present the findings of her mixed methods study of coaching students who completed a six-month coaching program. She will also describe a coaching dialectics model – derived from several theorists — to explain the complexity of coaching, and which may provide a clue to this overlooked developmental path.
