Well this is new…..

Hello and welcome to the Research Coach blog. It’s always been on the ‘to do’ list to start blogging, but it’s one of those things that never quite got prioritised, mostly because it’s rather terrifying! However, we are constantly talking with our coachees about the importance of pushing outside of the comfort zone (there’s a preview for a future post theme), so here we go.

We’ll be using this space to post about topics that are important to us and our clients. We will be sharing tips, tools, resources, insights and ideas. We’ll be drawing on our own experiences and the knowledge we continue to gain as coaches supporting hundreds of academic researchers from around the world as they navigate the ups and downs of life in research and academia.

We hope to feature guest bloggers too, so if you have an idea you’d like to contribute, please get in touch – ultimately our aim is to build a Research Coach community, where researchers can support each other, share ideas and celebrate their progress. This is a work in progress, of which this blog is a part.

We will be sharing our blog posts on the Research Coach website, via our mailing list and various social media channels.

We love to hear from researchers and academics, so if you have a question you think we might be able to answer, you have an idea for something you’d like to feature on the blog, or if you’d like support with any of the topics we cover here please contact us and we will do our best to help.

Bye for now,
Natalie and Jo, the Research Coaches
