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.
