Coaching - Henley Business School Finland

Webinar 25.2.19: Putting executive coaching under the microscope

Executive coaching can be transformative both for the coachee and the organisation in which they work โ€“ or so the theory goes. But is this all clever marketing on the part of coaching providers โ€“ or is there research to support this claim? After all, organisations surely need more than anecdotal evidence before they invest in coaching as a core component of their staff development strategy.

In this session, Erik de Haan will speak about a new randomised controlled trial (RCT) within a global healthcare corporation, which seeks to provide hard evidence on the effectiveness of executive coaching. Involving 180 coachees, 66 coaches and 140 line managers, this is potentially the largest RCT in executive coaching to date. In addition, Erik will bring you up to date with the results of a longitudinal RCT in a university, involving 110 coachees and an equal amount of control-group participants. The study considered the participantsโ€™ outcomes, relationships and well-being and provided very encouraging results as to the effectiveness of executive coaching.

The fee for the webinar is ยฃ25 + VAT (10% discount for Henley alumni; free for Coaching Centre members).
