Empowering female pre-retireess with a goal focused coaching relationship and a direct focus on well-being: A mixed method multiple case study
M Fogg International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2019
This multiple case study of life coaching uses an embedded mixed method design to examine the question: How does an evidence based coaching approach, including the use of the PERMA Profiler, assist the selection of personally meaningful goals and enhance well-being for women at the preretirement phase of life? Thematic analysis of the data from three cases, including the coach and the client’s perspective, highlights a focus on specific goals, exploration and self-reflection that is anchored by higher order goals aligned to participants’ well-being values. Participants reported feeling more positive, in control and aware of the impacts on their well-being.
