EBC Blog:  Innovations in Leadership Coaching: Research and Practice

Guest Blogger:  Francine Campone, EdD, MCC, Principal at F. Campone Coaching & Consulting,

Innovations in Leadership Coaching: Research and Practice offers a multi-disciplinary, scholarly, and post-modern perspective on coaching in the twenty-first century. In this volume, scholar-practitioners present innovative theories, models, and practices in coaching which are aligned with a new generation of coaching that is relational, experiential, reflexive, and dynamic. The chapters in this monograph examine the people and events taking place in a time and place which is characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.  Using evidence from theory and research, the chapters offer an evidence-based grounding for the work of head and heart that is coaching.

Responding to complex environments and individuals, several chapters offer integrative, multi-disciplinary coaching models and strategies. These models explicitly address the whole person of both the coach and coachee in the coaching conversation at deeper and more integrated levels. The Core Competency Model, as updated by the International Coaching Federation, incorporates new elements which address the importance of cultural, systemic, and contextual awareness.  Implicitly, this emphasis on the coach’s embodiment requires evidence of coach-client interactions that are grounded in theories and models which specifically encompass coach-client dynamics, coach presence, self-awareness, and depth of engagement.

The five sections of the book address this expanded perspective in various ways. Part I lays the groundwork with an overview of the “ancestors” of coaching whose theories and practices have informed coaching from its beginnings. Part II consists of five chapters including research, theories, and models that inform coaching with leaders and executives. Part III includes four chapters focused on a variety of theories, research, and techniques that enable transformational change with coaching clients. Part IV includes four chapters focused on coaching in an organizational or group context. Part V includes three chapters covering research and applied theory for educating and developing professional coaches.

This volume is intended for practicing coaches, researchers, coach educators, and students of coach training programs. Researchers will enjoy reading about current studies using both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies applied in multiple coaching contexts, including corporate, nonprofit, and education for both individuals and groups. Coach practitioners will appreciate innovations in coaching theory and methodology that have immediate practical application with their clients. Coach educators will find fresh perspectives and new reading material to include in their training programs. Students will gain a deeper appreciation of the theories underpinning evidence based coaching, which serve as lenses through which we work with clients as evidence based coaches and scholar-practitioners.
