EXPLORING GROUNDED THEORY STUDY IN COACHING: A CASE OF MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
Keywords:Coaching. Commitment, Knowledge, Psychological interpretation
This study investigates the coaching readiness of manufacturing employees through the responses of coaches and the factors that influence it. Kretzschemar’s coaching readiness model is the primary resource to identify prospective factors influencing coaching preparedness. 50 questionnaires were distributed to a random sample of manufacturing organization instructors. However, random sampling was conducted on designated coaches from manufacturing companies. Multiple regression analysis was utilized to determine the most influential variables influencing the level of coaching preparedness. Commitment to change is the biggest and most significant factor affecting a person’s coaching readiness. A significant correlation exists between client readiness and coaching expertise. Psychological interpretation and a sense of safety did not affect the coaching preparedness substantially. The study demonstrates that knowledge of coaching and a propensity to change can be used as influencing variables to increase employee coaching readiness
