When I first met Julie Jenkins, a Master’s student at Adler University studying Organizational Psychology, one of the first things I noticed was her deep commitment to understanding how organizations can create, build and sustain a coaching culture. Since that first discussion some two years ago, Julie has interviewed several CoachingWise organizations for her thesis which is focused on developing a simple, reliable measure called the Coaching Culture Inventory (CCI).
Julie’s academic research goal is to expand our theoretical understanding of coaching culture and develop a statistically validated psychometric tool that measures important outcomes of a coaching culture related to employee well-being and organizational effectiveness.
She hopes that her study of coaching culture will shape the field in the same way that Cameron & Quinn did when they developed the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI)—used by over 12,000 companies worldwide to diagnose and change organizational culture.
For the purposes of Julie’s research, “a coaching culture is one where the principles, beliefs, and mindsets driving people’s behavior in the workplace are deeply rooted in the discipline of coaching” (Clutterbuck, Megginson & Bajer (2016).
As we know, the research specific to coaching culture is still growing and developing. Julie hopes this new Coaching Culture Inventory (CCI) measure will ideally assist organizations in identifying strengths and opportunities to develop their own coaching culture and to link coaching to important organizational outcomes such as job performance, employee well-being, retention and engagement.

Once you have completed the survey, the anonymity settings of the survey prevent your data from being withdrawn from the study as the student researcher will not know which data is yours.
Once the study is completed, a summary of the results will be emailed to participants who requested a link to a copy of the final thesis and the thesis will be published at Adler University, Vancouver Campus.
