Introduction to Evidence Based Coaching, New York, November 8, 2018

Introduction to Evidence Based Coaching

Over the last two decades the use of coaching as a means of enhancing performance and development in organizations has increased substantially. This trend shows no sign of slowing down. At the same time there has been exponential growth in the amount of coaching research, and increased interest in the development of evidence-based approaches to coaching. Despite this, there is still a lack of clarity about what constitutes evidence-based coaching.

“The intelligent and conscientious use of relevant and best current knowledge, integrated with professional practitioner expertise in making decisions about how to deliver coaching to coaching clients and in designing and delivering coach training programs” Grant, 2016

Using the best available evidence from research, theory and practice, this unique workshop will explore the fundamentals of coaching, including the core theories and techniques of evidence-based coaching used to facilitate individual and cultural change. The workshop covers both the “how” of coaching (how to coach) and the “why” of coaching (why it works) – it is results focused, interactive and highly experiential.
