The latest version of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's guide to Coaching and Buying Coaching Services is being launched today at the Coaching at Work Conference. It is designed to offer practical advice to organisations commissioning coaching assignments as well as those adopting more informal coaching and mentoring arrangements.
Coaching has become one of the most widely used development tools. The latest CIPD Learning and Development survey findings showed that nearly three quarters of all organisations (71%) are now using coaching
Dr John McGurk, Learning, Training and Development Adviser , CIPD says: "Coaching is the ideal technique for change management, skills development and leadership in organisations. We know that every organisation is different and coaching needs to be tailored to the requirements of each organisation.
"When CIPD launched the initial guide in 2004, it changed the face of coaching. With this new version we are recognising that coaching has moved on. It is now an established part of management and people development in organisations throughout the UK. The guide quite simply helps HR professionals make sense of coaching and understand how it can be used as a powerful tool to help employees perform better."
