As a current or future health and wellness coach, you're not content to simply depend on headlines and the latest "hacks" on social media. You're an evidence based coach - the individual who stays up to date on the latest peer-reviewed research and brings that into your coaching consultations. In an effort to help support your approach, we have a regularly scheduled episode that focuses on research and how it applies to our work as health and wellness coaches.
The genesis of this episode began at the recent British Psychological Society conference in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where our host was presenting his latest research on functional mental toughness. While there, he had some incredible opportunities to not only hear some brilliant individuals present their research, but also to get to know them personally during meals, breaks and even a morning run organized by the conference. Following the conference, we selected 4 different studies from among those individuals and provide a brief overview here, along with their application to coaching. Topics include psychological stress, self-efficacy, attentional control, self-talk, mood states and the concept of challenge vs. threat, each of which can be utilized in a coaching setting to help your clients more effectively pursue #BetterThanYesterday.
