We are focused on building both the business case and the evidence base for development of recovery and wellness coaching for individuals, organisations and communities.
The following projects are basing their research in part on FRC approaches, methodology and coaching.
Research project to be conducted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Philosophy in Management Coaching 2014 at Stellenbosch University, South Africa
The proposed research will explore the experiences of coaches who have worked with employed professionals in early recovery from alcohol misuse. Recovery coaching is growing as a professional service, complementing the work of treatment centres and mutual aid societies. There may be lessons to be learned from these experiences, which may be of interest to other coaches in this arena, and to coaching as a whole.

We are in collaboration with FRC investigating coaching and modern HRM in Denmark. Specifically, we are interested in the relation between coaching as a tool for improving employee welfare / well-being and how this can create value in an organizational context.
In what way must employee healthcare and well-being be viewed in an organisation for coaching to become a relevant tool for management of human resources – and how can coaching become an asset for value creation in an organizational context
The aim of our inquiry is to uncover the conditions under which coaching may be implemented in organisations today. We therefore seek to explore different steps in the decision process, evaluation of and consequences of coaching in an organisational context.
