Coaching is a widespread and respected aspect of HR and management practice. Yet coaching’s intrinsic value can be compromised by a continued weakness in evidence for its direct effect on individual and business performance.
This report examines the four dimensions of an evidence-based approach to coaching and mentoring:
- critically appraising coaching interventions
- understanding the scientific basis of evidence and integrating its practice-relevant insights
- linking coaching assignments with key organisational data and metrics
- reflecting on practice and engaging with stakeholders.
It also offers a number of recommendations and detailed appendices.
