Coaching Society

The WIWBL Society for Coaching

We are a community of practice of academics and practitioners from around the world dedicated to the development of coaching.

Our vision is to form a community of research and enquiry into coaching practice drawing upon the expertise of practitioners, organisations and academics to encourage practitioner-led enquiry and dialogue with academic partners.

By research we mean the whole continuum of enquiries we undertake from individual reflective practice through to large scale multi-partner research projects. By researcher we mean those interested in improving practice from individual practitioners interested in using the most up-to-date information and tools to sustain the cutting-edge of their offer to clients through to full time academics interested in individual learning and change.

The Aim

The community enables practitioners, students, academics and organisations to come together to share the best practice and the results of the latest studies so that further research and development projects can be initiated and supported.  We hold a particular welcome to practitioner researchers who wish to develop good practice in research and contribute to the growing body of knowledge in a robust and rigorous manner.

Session in the conference

The Society for Coaching at WIWBL is a network of practitioners and researcher interested in exploring and promoting the use of coaching and mentoring within Wales for developing performance and wellbeing for individuals and their organisations.

In this session the resources and opportunities of the network will be presented, and each participant will be offered a free associate membership of the Society for one year.
