NEWS: mixed feelings about chartered institute

The profession is divided about whether we need a chartered institute of coaching in the UK – our question on this in the annual Coaching at Work Readers’ Survey 2013 stirred up strong responses.
Forty per cent of respondents came out in favour of setting up an institute, 33 per cent were against and 27 per cent did not know.
Forming a chartered institute came third on the list of priorities for 2014 (24%), after becoming more aligned with business (36%), followed by evaluation/return on investment (33%).
