PROF DR REINHARD STELTER, MSCP (Accred) Coaching Psychology Unit, Dep. of Exercise & Sport Sciences, Univ. of Copenhagen
Prof Stelter’s presentation focuses on his ongoing study into the career development and personal growth of young sports talents and their sports career, educational demands and private life. He explains how the intervention has an impact on identity and self-concept of young sports talents in general and how it has a positive influence on their motivation and coping with stress. The findings from this qualitative study identify how participants experience an appreciative learning environment that helps them to develop identity and construct new strategies for future action expressing increased intrinsic motivation. He concludes by stating that the greatest benefit appears to lie on the mutual learning possibilities that the participants experience. In that sense narrative group coaching has the potential to empower the individual within collaborative dialogues.
Sarah Dale and Haley Lancaster discuss in this paper the merits of using peer evaluation of the coaching process. They speak from the perspective of the coach and the coachee in terms of the impact an evaluation of this kind has for each and the lessons learnt along the way. They provide advice for the future use of peer evaluation and how it can enrich and support practitioners in the field of Coaching Psychology.
Paul Olson considers whether the heterogeneous nature of top teams makes them more difficult to coach. He skilfully evaluates the literature on group psychology, which he maps against the Big Five personality factors which produced some very interesting results. There was evidence that certain factors are more prevalent in top teams. The relative contribution of these theories in team coaching could be considerable if personality theories build upon traceable constructs such as core beliefs or developmental schemata.
