The UCLan Institute for Coaching and Performance (ICaP) focuses on the enhancement of performance, either directly or by developing providers and systems to bespoke needs.
As the predominant support profession, coaching (and its other variants such as instruction, teaching and leading) is the major focus. However, the Institute also works with other key providers, in particular science and medicine, both as single disciplines and as members of an integrated support team.
Our approach is interdisciplinary, but with an emphasis on practitioner decision making and the evolution of an optimum practice environment. As such, we look to develop client independence and autonomy, rather than trying to build dependency.
Effective, practical and evidence-based application is a key objective of our research and consultancy work.
