COACHING AT WORK

Abstracts, PublicNet: 15 August, 2002

As coaching grows in popularity and credibility, both inside and outside the workplace, eighty per cent of executives say they think they would benefit from coaching at work and dismiss the suggestion that it is just another fad. Virtually all managers (96 per cent) think coaching should be available to every employee, regardless of seniority, according to research by the Chartered Management Institute and Campaign for Learning. The number of managers receiving coaching increased from 58 per cent in 1996 to 77 per cent by 2000. The research also shows that 85 per cent of managers identify the main value as enhancing team morale, while 80 per cent say it is good at generating responsibility on the part of the learner. Managers say coaching can be used to support an individual through restructuring and change in the organisation, or as part of a programme to motivate and retain staff. Although acknowledging that not everyone is cut out to be a good coach, most are happy with the quality of coaching they receive, but a quarter are concerned that insufficient time is set aside for it.Published by the Chartered Management Institute. http://www.managers.org.uk
