Special Advisors Hub

The purpose of our Special Advisors Hub is to

  • Review selected research articles, including emerging thought leadership themes
  • Discuss what that research means
  • Make recommendations for practitioners (coaches, mentors and coaching-mentoring supervisors)

Our Special Advisors are:

  • Bob Garvey, Professor of Business Education, York St John Business School
  • Colleen Harding Head of Organisational Development, Bournemouth University
  • Jenni Jones University of Wolverhampton
  • Jill Andreanoff Employability Consultant at University of Essex
  • Michael Snowden University of Huddersfield
  • Neil Ralph Lancaster University
  • Ron Lawson EMCC UK - KE Volunteer

Ron Lawson heads up the SAHub. The initial project conducted by the SAHub, launched Summer 2016, reviewed the findings from Dr Rebecca Jones’ research paper “The effectiveness of Workplace Coaching: A Meta-analysis of learning and Performance Outcomes from Coaching.”  A synopsis, video and access to the full paper are available on our KE Resources page – Member Only Resources.

The Special Advisors Hub is looking at different methods of evaluation being used within the coaching and mentoring community. The result of this project is to share best practice for evaluation with the EMCC UK membership.  This will include signposting guidelines, templates and other written guidance as an online resource.

We aim to generate a set of guidelines on evaluation for practitioners; in the meantime, the hyperlinks are useful
