Dr Peter Jackson is deputy director of the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies at Oxford Brookes University (UK). He teaches on the MA programme in Coaching & Mentoring Practice and the Centre’s professional development programme in Coaching Supervision. His research into physicality and embodiment looks at individual coaches in action in their natural working environment to explore the many ways in which the coach’s practice is inseparable from the experience of ‘being-in-the-world’. He has an interest in the intersubjective processes of coaching, reflective learning, professional development and the development of research methods. In particular, how to create robust, useful and applicable knowledge for practitioners. His coaching practice has a particular focus on the challenges of general management and the dynamics of individual change within organisations.
