The coaching industry is growing fast and is making an important contribution to learning in the workplace. The CIPD’s 2006 learning and development survey showed that nearly eight in ten respondents were using coaching activities in one form or another, and a similar number were seeking to develop an organisational culture characterised by coaching to support improved performance. The CIPD’s research is designed to support this growth in coaching by providing up-to-date advice and guidance on good practice to members of the HR and learning and development communities. This report summarises some of the main findings of research into good practice in coaching supervision commissioned by the CIPD from the Bath Consultancy Group. The CIPD will publish a full report in its Change Agenda series at the end of November and this will be available at www.cipd.co.uk/changeagendas.
