Coaching is increasingly viewed and implemented as a key leadership and team development tool in organizations. In contrast, coaching research is still in its infancy. Previous empirical studies reveal that coaching proves to be an effective instrument in supporting coachees’ goal-attainment, well-being and personal development. Today we know that coaching works. However, the question how coaching works has remained a black box.
On my PhD trajectory affiliated with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam Business Research Centre, NL and in collaboration with Ashridge Centre for Coaching, UK as well as Case Western Reserve University, US, we are conducting a comprehensive coaching process-outcome-study. In other words, we investigate certain factors that potentially impact the effectiveness of coaching. We want to explore what really happens in coaching sessions. In doing so, we go beyond coach and coachee self-reports by analyzing video recordings for non-verbal interactions between coaches and coachees in a longitudinal study. We expect findings to contribute to our deeper understanding of what constitutes coaching’s effectiveness and how you as a coach may be enabled to enhance and optimize the effectiveness of your coaching practice. Therefore, we invite you to make a contribution in our project.
I am Tünde Erdös and I welcome you to my research project.

To get prepared for you recording session, follow the steps below.
To record your session, follow the steps below depending on the recording device of your choise.
If you are using a smartphone or tablet for recording, you will have to transfer the recording to you computer. Follow the steps below, depending on your operating system combination. This does not apply to when you use a latop or any other pc to create recordings.
Prior to uploading video files you will have use the CPR-App to have files transcoded (compressed) to enable shorter upload times and to have them encrypted to ensure authorized access only. Follow the steps outlined below on how to prepare the recordings using the CPR-App, depending on you computer's operating system.
Once the compressed and encrypted .pgp file is ready, follow the steps below to upload the recording.

Please note that spelling errors in the questionnaires can not be corrected at this time as modifications might cause disruptions in the data collection process. We are sorry for causing inconveniences in the fluency of your reading and kindly ask you for your consideration at this stage.
Please make sure you are using the correct link as each client's questionnaire has a unique link and expiration date. Some browsers store old cache data from previous questionnaires, please make sure this data is cleared by reloading the questionnaire multiple times.

You can turn off iCloud Photos on a single device when you follow this step:
You can temporary disable iOS update Notifications when you follow these steps:
Now that the update has been removed from the iOS device, you’ll want to avoid wi-fi, otherwise the update will just download itself at the next chance it gets. Typically this happens after the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is on wi-fi and it hasn’t been used in a while, similar to how iCloud automatically backs up.
We recommend using the build in recording software of your operating system where possible.
The CPR-App does remove any audio from the video during the transcoding process but if you want to make sure no audio is recorded in the first place follow the steps below:
Depending on your operating system, we recomend:
As Windows 7 does not come with a built in camera recording application, we recommend Debut Video Capture by NCH Software because it is free for non-commercial use. You can download from: https://www.nchsoftware.com/capture/de/index.html
Please take note that the Debut Video Capture setup requires an internet connection for installation! Once Debut Video Capture is installed, please follow these steps to configure the application:
Once you have confugured the software you are ready to record your first session. Follow the 'HOW TO CREATE A RECORDING USING A WINDOWS PC?' instructions in the Instrucitons Video Recording section, but instead of using the 'Camera App' use Debut Video Capture. Start and stop your recording using the record and stop button. Once you have finished a recording, you will find the recorded file in the Debut folder inside your pictures folder.
For more information on how to use Debut, NCH Software provides this tutorial video.
VIDEO SUBMISSION & CPR APP:
If your Anti-Virus program is blocking the CPR-App from starting, please add the CPR-App.exe file to the Anti-Virus's whitelist of trusted programs. For specific instructions depending on the Anti-Virus program installed on your pc, follow the coresponding link below:
Please contact support at email@example.com
If you are using the Windows version of the CPR-App, please attach the log.txt, transcodeLogError.txt & transcodeLogOutput.txt files from the CPR-App folder to your email. You may not find all of these files in the CPR-App folder, depending on the problem encountered.
Please contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org
If possible include the answers to the follwing questions in you email:
The files created by the CPR App ...
To achive the above the CPR App will transcode the selected video file into a new smaller video without any audio. Then it applies the encryption and creates a new transcoded and encrypted file ending with ".pgp" in the original file's folder.
Only ".pgp" files created by the CPR App should be uploaded!
The best solution is to lower recording resolution before recording, please see the 'Instructions Video Recording' for how to set recording resolution on different devices. If you want to reduce file size of an existing video file, please use the CPR-App which should reduce file size through transcoding. Please note that compressing a video file using zip or simmilare compression types does not decrease file size significantly as these compression algorithms are optimised for text and not video files.
The latest version of the CoachingPresenceReserach-App is only available through this website. Please use the links in the 'Instructions Video Submission' section of this page. Currently supported operationg systems are Windows and macOS.
