Your monthly Coaching at Work e-update December 2009

Welcome to the December issue of the newsletter

We’ve been talking about the profession maturing for some time but last year could go down in history as the year coaching and mentoring really started to grow up. It was a challenging year and survival was key. Certainly many of you consider this to be one of coaching’s main achievements in 2009, according to our annual readers’ survey (see Coaching at Work, Vol 5, Issue 1 in January).

And yet, 2009 was much more than a year of battening down the hatches and surviving; coaches showed they could operate at many levels, being demonstrating just how resourceful, creative, collaborative and outward-looking they can be, a year of great achievements for the profession.

Next year, you say the top area to address will be accreditation/standards/regulation, followed by evaluation/ROI/value for money, and using coaching as a change agent. The full survey results will appear in the next issue.

Congratulations to Jackie Keddy who has won our 2009 Person of the Year award.
