Manual for the coding of question types and questioning sequences in coaching (QueSCoM)

  • This manual serves to describe and evaluate a coaching-specific typology of questions and, building on this, of questioning sequences. Based on an interdisciplinary, psychological and linguistic/conversation analytical approach, a rating instrument has been developed in order to qualitatively and quantitatively capture questions and questioning sequences in the coaching process. The aim is to distinguish between more and less successful sequences. It is assumed that successful sequences contribute to the overall success of the coaching conversation.The success of the questioning sequences is evaluated by examining the responsiveness of coach and coachee. Responsiveness refers to the verbal actions of both participants in the conversation (Graf & Dionne 2021) and is understood in this manual both at the level of individual sequence positions as well as the entire questioning sequence. The responsiveness of the participants in the conversation and the success of the questioning sequences are considered in relation to the organizational structure of the coaching conversation. The manual is based on dyadic coaching conversations between coaches and coachees from the area of business/work-related coaching. Coaches' questions serve as a starting point (target action) (Peräkylä 2019) for a questioning sequence.
