Constructive Grounded Theory in the Search for Meaning on Global Mindedness: a Novice Researcher’s Guide
W Wilson International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2012
This article follows the author’s own journey as a novice grounded theorist reflecting on the choices and challenges faced at each stage of the research process. The purpose of the research study itself was to explore the concept of global mindedness and to assess the existing awareness and interpretation of the global mindedness construct from within the domain of the coaching profession. Global mindedness is a theoretical construct and an abstract concept; constructive grounded theory was considered an appropriate methodology to use because it allows for the exploration of the lived experience.
