The Power of Workplace Coaching | EEF

The Power of Workplace Coaching

Coaching has grown enormously in popularity in recent years, but how widely is it used, how is it best used and what benefits does it bring to the business?

The session will be presented by David Pardey, Senior Manager, Research & Policy at the Institute of Leadership & Management, and author of Coaching (in the Learning Made Simple series). Copies of the research report and other support materials will be supplied, and there will be ample opportunities to discuss the findings and to share your own experiences.
