Our "dream" is create a vibrant and productive home at Weatherhead for ongoing coaching research. It's important to us that the research be rigorous to exceed the standards for good scholarship and relevant to the individuals and organizations who benefit from it. So, for that reason and also to help us fund research, organizations have the opportunity to become members of the CRL. Current members include Erie Insurance and Fifth Third Bank.
The continuation of the CRL calls for a number of organizational member partners. These partners will have unique access to engaging with the actual researchers and their research supporting coach development, best practice and organizational outcomes.
For an annual investment of $15,000, organizational members will receive the following benefits:
- A private, 3-hour presentation and meeting for up to 20 participants from your organization onsite at Case Western Reserve University. You can use the meeting to share research with others in your organization and/or as a catalyst for a group discussion on strategies to create/advance a culture of coaching
- Up to three seats to two Day of Discovery meetings held in the spring and fall
- Preference for serving as a research site for future coaching studies
- Networking with other companies in the CRL
The financial support of current CRL member organizations has enabled us to design a research study, which we are preparing to launch this year. This study examines the impact of different coaching modalities, i.e. face-to-face, video-based and phone coaching, on the coaching relationship and coaching outcomes.
