Practicing Science - Coach Motivation
Dr. Joey Collin's Research Vertical Team has spent the past year researching, testing, and practicing Coach Motivation (CM). The purpose of our work is to investigate the outcomes of a Motivational Interviewing (MI) informed approach to workplace coaching - CM. Mechanisms of MI include open-ended questions, affirmations, reflections, and summaries. Moderators such as gender identity, race, culture, socio-economic status, and seniority at work may also be considered. Hypothesized outcomes include an increase in motivation, work performance, work satisfaction, and a decrease in symptoms of burnout. To learn more about our findings, see the below video that was presented at the annual 2020 Society of Industrial-Organizational Psychology (SIOP) Virtual Conference.
