Welcome to episode 41 of My Pocket Psych. In this episode, Richard and Pilar ask the fundamental question: does coaching work? And as you might imagine, it's not a yes/no answer.
We also cover wellbeing, productivity and effectiveness news and reflect on what a positive coaching experience is really about.
