Lew Stern’s List of Coaching Research Reports [Edited]

Lew Stern’s superb (and exhaustive) list of published articles on professional coaching is still of value—even as a resource that is several years old. I have selected a relatively short list of the articles Stern identified that directly reflect the diverse ways in which coaching research is being conducted. These are certainly not the only studies conducted during the ten year period of time that Lew Stern surveyed – and there are many more studies done since he conducted the survey. Nevertheless, this list provides some examples of how this challenging research can be conducted in studying something as elusive and diverse as professional coaching.
