Abstract

My research uses an auto-ethnographic narrative to discuss a phenomenon called experiential transmission which I use in my coaching practice in an educational context. My primary aim is to explore experiential transmission for its potential to improve coaching outcomes in such a context. I have chosen an auto-ethnographic methodology in order to tell the story of how I started to explore experiential transmission and how I further developed my understanding of the phenomenon. I pose the question: How is the process of experiential transmission felt by my clients and by me when I am coaching in schools? To answer my question I examine in detail the personal transition experience between coach and coachee and I analyse the stages of personal expansion for the coachee directly after experiential transmission has taken place. With my project I seek to add to the slowly growing movement of coaching practitioners who are looking to reveal possibilities that are divorced from the technically led, compartmentalized and linear approaches. My findings have suggested that experiential transmission may be a plausible and exciting area for future study.
