This move towards developing and embedding a "coaching culture" is helping organisations get a better return on investment in coaching and use it to make them more resilient to change.
During an economic downturn, a knee-jerk reaction organisations often have is to slash investment in learning and development. But these turbulent times have actually proven to be very positive for the coaching market, with savvy organisations realising that it can help them manage change better, and improve their chances of success when the market picks up again.
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the number of organisations using coaching for line managers has actually risen slightly in the past three years, from 49% in 2009 to 52% in 2012. Furthermore, around 16% of organisations are using external coaches to help them build coaching capability internally.
