Coaching has seen huge growth in recent years with a Chartered Institute of Personal Development survey reporting that over 75% of companies are now using coaching as a development approach. As pressure increases on the funds available to spend on external coaches the benefits can still be obtained by training internal coaches and managers in coaching skills. Coaching has become a key resource in the toolkit of modern, learning organisations. It can represent a major investment of resources and therefore it is essential that organisations are clear about what it can - and can't deliver. It is essential that people involved in coaching are well-trained if they are to be able to effectively pass their experience on to others. Coaching can take place with an individual or within a group and an organisation may want to introduce a coaching culture into its everyday ways of working. Coaching is likely to play a major role in leadership development activities for UK organisations. A CIPD survey in 2006 showed that 93 % of respondents using coaching believe that a coaching culture is either very important or important to the success of their organisation. Results show that improving individual and business performance are the main objectives for developing a coaching culture.
