The University of Dundee’s Dr. Ayse Cinar has been named in CHRO Asia’s upcoming 100 Best Global Coaching Leaders 2017.

The ranking takes into account a broad range of criteria, including track record, thought leadership, integrity and ethics, and creativity and innovation.

Finalists were selected by a jury of senior figures in the profession, researchers and academics, led by Dr. R.L. Bhatia, Director of the World HRD Congress.

A public health dentist by profession, Ayse is also an internationally accredited ICC (International Coaching Community) coach.

She is a Senior Research Fellow with the Scottish Oral Health Improvement Prison Programme at the Dental Health Services Research Unit (DHSRU). She is currently focusing on the ‘Mouth Matters’ project -- specifically developing and implementing an evidence-based health coaching programme to meet the specific oral health and health needs of offender populations in Scotland.

She will travel to the World HRD Congress in Mumbai next February to receive her citation. In addition, her name will also be included in the 100 Best Global Coaching Leaders 2017 coffee table book.

Ayse said:

“I am so happy that I have been named in the top 100 Best Global Coaching Leaders 2017 -- not only on the behalf of myself but also on the behalf of all my clients, because this award is for us all.”

“I have been working as a coach and coach trainer since 2010, and my clients have been from challenging groups: patients with diabetes type 2, and now people in prison. This award shows that coaching can be a bridge between research and real life practices, after all it is the coach that facilitates and supports her client to unlock and increase his or her personal resources, and it is the unlocking of hidden skills that thereby improves his or her health, quality of life and relationships with the people around them. Coaching, is therefore a personal leadership approach and social innovation.” 

“I am looking forward to receiving the award, as this will demonstrate that being a researcher and being a professional coach can be combined, and the insights gleaned are transformative – it is case of transforming research into practice, to transform lives; bringing new insights both to dentistry and the coaching profession.”

“I am thankful to all my supervisors and colleagues at DHSRU who have believed in me and supported me on the way up to date, despite many challenges”
