New article: International Journal of Selection and Assessment

I'm please to announce that an article entitled: A Five-Dimensional Model of Attributes:
Some precursors of executive coach selection
is to be published in the above journal in December 2011. Here is a copy of the abstract:

The purpose of this study was to specify a set of attributes, identified as important precursors
to coach selection. Executive coaching has grown exponentially, but there have been few
studies as to the efficacy of coaching, including the factors that influence a manager’s choice
of coach.This study sought to identify these factors.The 45-item, online survey produced 267
useable responses. Results of the principal component analysis suggested a five-factor solution,
with women showing a statistically significant preference over men for coaches who have
the Ability to Develop Critical Thinking and Action, the Ability to Forge the Coaching Partnership ,and Coach Experience and Qualifications.The impact of coachee age was not significant in selecting executive coaches.The findings show a statistically significant relationship between coach attributes and the intention to continue with coaching. The implications of these
findings for the selection of coaches, and for the coaching profession are discussed.
