The Corporate and Executive Coaching Organisation has published a white paper entitled “Getting the Best from your Corporate Coach”, seek developed for decision makers responsible for appointing corporate coaches and aimed at helping them avoid the pitfalls that they can often face.

Informed by research amongst City of London firms by recruitment specialists Morgan McKinley and Vicki Espin of The Corporate and Executive Coaching Organisation, the white paper discusses how to establish criteria for measuring coaching success, how to determine whether a coach will have a good fit with the organisations and its needs, and how to effectively manage the coaching relationship.

Vicki Espin said, “Our research showed that just 30% of City firms with coaching programmes were able to assess the impact of those programmes on their bottom line.  Our white paper, “Getting the Best from your Corporate Coach” is our response to our findings.  It highlights the issues that companies should consider before engaging a coach to ensure that they will get a measurable return on their investment.”

Getting the Best from your Corporate Coach” also details the qualities that companies should seek in a corporate coach, based on the National Occupational Standards for Coaching and Mentoring in the Workplace for which Vicki Espin sat on the Steering Board. 

The white paper is now available to all HR professionals and can be downloaded free from The Corporate and Executive Coaching Organisation web site here.
