A mixed methods study of effects and antecedents of solution-focused questions in coaching

Stefanie Jordan & Simone Kauffeld
The coaching interaction regarding questioning is still under-researched. This study investigates clients’ behavioural responses to coaches’ solution-focused questions (SFQ), their effects on coaching outcomes, and coaches’ career-related attributes promoting SFQ. Using a mixed methods design, we applied longitudinal self-report and behavioural data for 23 coach-client dyads. Lag sequential analyses and regressions revealed coaches’ SFQ to elicit clients’ solution and self-efficient statements and the importance of coaches’ career adaptability for SFQ. Our findings contribute to the...

Rückkehr zum Mond

Marie-Luise Heuser
Erhebliche finanzielle und intellektuelle Ressourcen wurden investiert, um Menschen zum Mond zu bringen. Kaum war das Ziel erreicht, wurde das Apollo-Programm beendet. Zurückzuführen ist dieses überraschende Motivationstief auch darauf, dass kulturell nicht ausreichend verstanden wurde, was Raum- und Mondfahrt bedeutet. Die Frage ist, ob wir das heute besser verstehen als vor fünfzig Jahren. – Gastbeitrag der Philosophin Marie-Luise Heuser vom Institut für Raumfahrtsysteme der TU Braunschweig.

A major locus controls a biologically active pheromone component in Heliconius melpomene

Understanding the production, response, and genetics of signals used in mate choice can inform our understanding of the evolution of both intraspecific mate choice and reproductive isolation. Sex pheromones are important for courtship and mate choice in many insects, but we know relatively little of their role in butterflies. The butterfly Heliconius melpomene uses a complex blend of wing androconial compounds during courtship. Electroantennography in H. melpomene and its close relative H. cydno showed that...

Clustering of loci controlling species differences in male chemical bouquets of sympatric Heliconius butterflies

Kelsey Byers, Kathy Darragh, Sylvia Fernanda Garza, Diana Abondano Almeida, Ian Warren, Pasi Rastas, Richard Merrill, Stefan Schulz, W. Owen McMillan & Chris Jiggins
The degree to which loci promoting reproductive isolation cluster in the genome – i.e. the genetic architecture of reproductive isolation - can influence the tempo and mode of speciation. Tight linkage between these loci can facilitate speciation in the face of gene flow. Pheromones play a role in reproductive isolation in many Lepidoptera species, and the role of endogenously-produced compounds as secondary metabolites decreases the likelihood of pleiotropy associated with many barrier loci. Heliconius butterflies...
