The same set of considerations will be taken into account when attempting to make sense of mean scores and variance scores for this second question. The absolute value associated with each of the mean scores must be considered and we will do so when discussing results from this second question. Though the response set concerns are less with this question then the questions addressed in the first two reports, it is still important for us to compare the mean and variance scores. There is still the potential of response set distortions in data derived from responses to this second question. Given these response set concerns, we offer the following ranking of mean scores (from high to low) for this second question from our Survey One respondents:

Question Two. How much influence does each of the following have on your CURRENT development as a coach?

Experiences in coaching with clients (mean=2.54)
Taking courses, seminars or workshops (including online courses) (mean=1.99)
Reading books or journals relevant to your coaching practice (mean=1.92)
Getting formal supervision or consultation (mean=1.84)
Experiences in your personal life outside coaching (mean=1.83)
Having informal case discussion with colleagues (mean=1.81)
Coaching other coaches on professional or life issues (mean=1.69)
Getting coaching on your coaching work (mean=1.67)
Teaching coaching courses or seminars (face to face or online) (mean=1.61)
Giving supervision or consultation to other coaches (mean=1.60)
Getting life coaching for yourself (mean=1.59)
The workplace conditions in which you practice (mean=0.93)
