I’ve just returned from the EMCC (European Mentoring & Coaching Council) at Ashridge. It was a great learning opportunity. Instant highlights for me included; ‘Creativity in coaching supervision by Alison Hodge, ‘Coaching with the brain in mind’ by David Rock and ‘Virtual Coach/Virtual Mentor by Zulfi Hussain & David Clutterbuck.
I’m just in the process of trying to work up a research proposal for my MA (Coaching & Mentoring) and want to focus on the latter area. It seems to me that there is so much scope now for virtual & remote coaching as part of a rich multi-media approach (that includes social networking). It appears that there is limited empirical research that has been done in this area & I’d really like to make a difference.
My challenge now is to decide;where should I focus, how can I narrow this down & what can I refer to in my lit review?
Any thoughts would be welcome
I’ll share more detailed thoughts re the conference once I’ve had a chance to reflect (as always!)
