Our inaugural Research Learning Day Conference was a forum for professionals to share the Emotion Coaching -related research they had completed  in their workplace settings.

This Research Project Proforma is offered to practitioners to use as a starting point and/or guide on their research journey. It is designed to be interactive and evolutionary, to guide not dictate and empower rather than hinder. We hope you find it useful.
