Establishment and Expansion of Evidence-Based Professional Coaching Perspectives and Practices.
One: Systemic Advantage
Generation of valid and useful information about professional coaching through the systemic enactment of multiple initiatives: digitally based survey research tools (such as Survey Monkey), other quantitative and qualitative research strategies, and powerful statistical analytic tools (such as “R”).
Two: Distinctive Advantage
Making use of the distinctive and complementary competencies of the three ownership organizations in conducting research, analyzing results, distributing findings and conducting programs that enable the findings to be fully understood and engaged.
Three: Collaborative Advantage
Collaborating with other coach-related organizations in the enactment and successful accomplishments of Strategies One and Two.

Project One: Coaching Tools
Generating information through use of Survey Monkey that can be used in the creation of evidence-based coaching practices (making use of generated data in helping coaching client become better informed regarding alternative options, so that they might make better decisions).
Providing training programs (with certifications) to help professional coaches make most effective use of these practices to complement coaching practices in which they are already engaged.
Example: Pathways to Sleep
70 plus pathways in four areas (health-related habits, preparation for sleep, conditions of sleep environment, and sleep aids) with four sources of information regarding each pathway: (1) expert ratings, (2) user ratings, (3) costs and (4) accessibility.
Project Two: Coaching Themes and Concepts
Using review panels and Survey Monkey data to identify important themes in the contemporary field of professional coaching. Choose specific theme for focused attention.
Identifying and testing out concepts related to this specific theme.
Use information gained through use of Survey Monkey and related quantitative and qualitative procedures (such as individual, video-recorded interviews and video-recorded focus groups) to provide a base for expansion on theme and related concepts in one or more of the following: (a) issue of choice on this specific theme, (b) articles in LPC on related concepts, and/or (c) Future of Coaching or Curated documents in LPC that focus on this specific theme and related concepts.
Project Three: Coaching Status
Identifying and expanding on current understanding of central issues in the field of professional coaching though collection of information via Survey Monkey and related research strategies from those involved in professional coaching practices and/or those who have made use of or are considering use of professional coaching services.
Exploring the multi-dimensional aspects of attitudes about and values associated with professional coaching perspectives and practices through use of cutting-edge tools of marketing research and analysis (John Krubski).
Often engage in these initiatives in association with a major coaching association (such as ICF, ACTO and GSACH).
Example: Development of Coaches Survey (Part Two)
Survey of coach training background, current perspectives and practices of coaches, and outcomes of specific coaching strategies—building on work done by David Orlinsky (University of Chicago) regarding comparable issues in the field of clinical psychology.
The first survey was completed in 2017 by PSP (Bergquist), with support from ICF and guidance by Francine Campone (Fielding Institute) and Linda Page (Adler Graduate School). and eight reports prepared and published in LPC. A new, more focused survey instrument is ready to be constructed building on findings from and recommendations made regarding the first survey.
It has been envisioned by Bergquist, along with Orlinsky and Page, that a comparative study could be engaged, ultimately, regarding perspectives, practices and developmental histories associated with professional coaching and clinical psychology (particularly psychotherapy (an area of overlap that has been filled with speculation, but little data for many years).
