Abstract

Having trained MBA leadership students as coaches, Hunt and Weintraub (2004) found that coaching promoted self-awareness, refection and engagement with the process, and most effective coaches were reflective practitioners (Schõn, 1983), since they reflected and developed knowledge. In a study measuring the relative effects of external, peer or self-coaching, MBA students coached by external coaches developed a higher degree of team-playing behaviour, and those who were coached by the external coach or self-coached showed improved grades (Sue-Chan and Latham, 2004). This paper reports on small-scale, initial research that investigated the effects of coaching on self-awareness, reflection and engagement among undergraduate students at London Metropolitan University.
