What does good coaching look like? We know there’s a lot of it going on but what’s the quality like?
In fact, 90% or organisations with over 2,000 employees use coaching in the workplace and 95% say that coaching has delivered tangible benefits to their business.
So why is it so hard to sell the case for coaching within the business with stats like those?
The Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) have recently published a report outlining what makes for effective coaching in an organisation. They explain how you can establish a case for coaching and set up a coaching framework that delivers results.
At Ican Development we have our own views too. We believe coaching should be a core competency for all managers responsible for getting the best out of their people. Becoming a great coach is (for most of us) hard work which takes time and effort. We don’t think brilliant coaches come overnight and that’s why we think a formally recognised coaching accreditation is the way to go. With an accreditation coaches have firm evidence of their ability to coach effectively, ethically and professionally.
Have a read through the report and see what you think.
