Overview and research interests
The main focus of this study is to explore if coaching can enhance well-being and if there is any evidence of differences in the applications of coaching when comparing results from the four research groups in this study; face to face, phone, computerised self-coaching and team coaching. Another aim of this study is to develop a cognitive behavioural team coaching (CBTC) framework and to collect information about what specific areas at work that can contribute to increased well-being and different teams' solutions on how to increase well-being at work.
