A recent survey undertaken by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) found that, in organisations across the country, coaching is increasingly being used as a means to improve business performance and drive success.
The use of coaching has seen significant growth in the past few years, with recent research confirming that coaching continues to be used by the majority of organisations and viewed as a highly effective learning and development tool.
The CIPD Learning and Development Survey revealed that coaching was used by more than two-thirds (69%) of organisations surveyed, with 86% using coaching as a specific talent management activity. Coaching has also forged increasingly closer links with management development, with more than half (55%) of respondents agreeing that coaching is part of their management development activities.
As the economy looks to recover, it is more important than ever that coaching interventions step forward and really prove their worth.
The results of the survey demonstrate that, for the majority of organisations, coaching:
- delivers tangible benefits to both the organisation and to individuals
- is an effective way to promote learning in organisations
- has become a key talent management activity
- can drive organisational development through the development of individuals
- can have a positive impact on the bottom line
