Why publish?

We are all learners. I never believe that my cup is full. I believe that mastery in any discipline implies making a contribution to the wider scope of knowledge with a long-lasting effect through staying on the path of research and development. With this stance, I am interested in embarking on a journey of mastery by relentlessly identifying and proposing ways for how to develop – continuously and sustainably.

The article co-authored with Dr Karl Prammer from C/O/N/E/C/T/A, Wiener Schule der Organisationsberatung, on Sustainability in Organization Development – Research Outcome and Current Practice was presented at the “Third International Conference on Advances in Management, Economics and Social Science - MES 2015” at Rome, Italy, 10-11 December 2015. Our article passed the peer review process successfully with a ’very good’ for its quality in terms of innovation and latest research outcome.

1. Conference paper - EMCC Research Conference

The conference paper I will present at the EMCC Research Conference to take place at Greenwich University, London on 14-15 June 2017, on qualitative research outcomes and their contribution towards the evidence base in coaching practice is due to be published on the conference website. You will receive further updates on recent developments shortly.

2. ABRI - Ashridge Research Center

The last couple of years have seen an increased reporting of qualitative research studies in coaching and mentoring. Many of these original studies make use of a methodological design where data could be quantified and by coding and sorting techniques, so that relatively reliable and replicable outcomes have emerged. What are these outcomes from qualitative research telling us? Have these studies laid bare lawfulness within coaching and mentoring interventions that traditional (quantitative) outcome studies would not be able to find – but may test through other means? And what are the ‘lessons’ that these early findings hold in stock for mentoring and coaching professionals? How will qualitative studies influence the practice and the professions of coaching and mentoring? This presentation will provide a systematic overview and some indications for changes in the field originally set in motion by original qualitative research studies.

Research study (under construction): What do we know about executive coaching and mentoring through qualitative research methodologies and what are next questions we need to ask? How can qualitative research outcomes contribute to increasing practitioners’ effectiveness?

Significance: There is no existing critical review of qualitative research studies and outcomes to date. The presentation will provide ‘state-of-the-art’ scientific knowledge: what do we know about the process and outcomes of coaching using qualitative research methodologies.

3. C/O/N/E/C/T/A

Through our collaboration with C/O/N/E/C/T/A, Wiener Schule der Organisationsberatung, Dr Karl Prammer and I received an invitation to co-author a book on ’Personen und Organisation’ and we now work to create a chapter on ‚Wie Sie sich selbst, Ihre Organisation und Ihre MitarbeiterInnen effektiver, kreativer und intuitiver durch schwergewichtige Veränderungsprozesse manövrieren’. Our objective is to propose practical ways for how to enhance leaders’ awareness of the inherent logic of heavy-weight change processes. We will lay out a portfolio of meaningful measures and actionable best practices we have deducted from our consulting and coaching practice so far.

Now and again, I am invited to write articles to be published periodically in in-house newletters for the companies that have come to trust my services over the years. These articles invariably showcase the insights gained at various stages of my training and coaching work. Here is a glimpse into what one of these articles concludes on ’The Free Fall of Knowledge’.

"What Highly Effective People Don’t Tell You" by Christa-Madhu Einsiedler & Gerald Hartwig peeks into the mind of a business leader. It combines the genres of psychology, fiction, business/leadership literature, and graphic novel. It offers a fresh and revealing perspective on how:

• we can face our fears instead of hiding from them
• we limit our own potential by clinging to unexamined assumptions
• we often think we need to reach our goals through sheer determinitation and grit
• we often let others suffer for our own success
• we can create a mind-set of growth
• we can seek help without sacrificing independence
• we can trust life’s challenges to nudge us toward growth in the face of our own resistance

This strikingly-rendered graphic novel is both a landmark contribution to business management literature as well as a riveting story of transformation in the face of a personal crisis.
What’s the story about: John Myers has fought his way nearly to the top of the corporate ladder. He’s got it all—the doting wife, the supercar, the mansion, and now his first son on the way. Most importantly to John, he’s on the verge of becoming CEO at the one of the most renowned IT companies in the world. When both his company and his family face sudden crises, John will have to account for more than the bottom line. The fearlessly independent man who thought he knew how to succeed in any situation finds himself for the first time at a loss for answers. He’ll have to face his deepest fears and transform his perspective in order to overcome these staggering challenges. His dark, terrifying journey will force him to look in the mirror and make hard choices.

"What fascinates me is the way in which Madhu & Gerald capture Madhu's coaching experience in the framework of art: a graphic novel. An easy to read artwork for coaches and clients alike." - Tünde Erdös
