Time perspectives and perceived effectiveness of peer coaching interventions between managers in an organisational context
J Anzengruber International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2015
This paper examines the influence of managers’ personal time perspectives on perceived peer coaching effectiveness. Relatively little research has been done on peer coaching in business environments and on how to incorporate personal time perspectives into peer coaching settings. This paper investigates the compatibility of different time perspectives within peer coaching relationships. Mixed method research was undertaken with 42 engineers in management positions in Germany at four interventions. The paper provides empirical evidence that perceived peer coaching effectiveness varies significantly with the combinations of the matched coaches’ and coachees’ preferred time perspectives. It also highlights the importance of meaning and proficiency, and raise questions for further research on perceived peer coaching effectiveness.
