Expanding How We Define Coach Effectiveness
This integrated literature review brings together three streams of research that have not been directly connected in prior coaching research. Specifically, we explore the conceptual relationship of (1) intentional change theory (Boyatzis, 2008), (2) high quality relationships, and (3) emotional and social competence as they relate to coach effectiveness. We propose these components represent key criteria for the development and evaluation of coaches and collectively open a new frontier for coaching research.
