FCC: WHAT’S NEXT

It’s coaching but not as we know it. Participants at the Future of Coaching Collaboration (FCC) Group’s roundtable on disruptive technology share further thoughts and highlight next steps   The coaching market just got a lot more crowded. In addition to the usual flood of new coaches, coach supervisors and coach trainers, we’re seeing more options to deliver coaching without a human coach and a host of players stepping in to manage and supply these options.

AGE MATTERS

“I don’t want to be coached by my mother.” How might generational differences have an impact on coach supervision? Peter Duffell and Natalia de Estevan-Ubeda report   Generational differences are becoming increasingly relevant across society.

We looked at three areas: What characterises the different generations, including cultural values, organisational behaviours, communication and workstyle preferences, and each generation’s relationship with technology (Birkman, 2016) How […]

A WOMAN OF INFLUENCE

Coaching boosts women’s legitimacy to lead in male-dominated workplaces and could have a pivotal role in shifting to gender parity. Kate Oldridge reports   It will take more than 200 years for women to have the same pay and employment opportunities as men by current trends, according to the World Economic Forum (2018). However, this timeline could shorten dramatically as part of the widespread social and political sea change in how we tackle gender inequalities in society and male-dominated workplaces. My research at Henley Business School (Oldridge, 2019) highlights the potentially pivotal role leadership coaching can play in bringing about […]

HOW TO… AVOID DIGITAL DISTRACTIONS

Steer clear of digital distractions if you want to increase your wellbeing and productivity. Jane Piper reports   Modern technology including smartphones, email and social media, are having a major impact on the way people think, work, communicate and collaborate. Many, including coaches, struggle to manage the pressure of the triple whammy of being available 24/7, expected to respond immediately and overwhelmed by the high volume of emails and information. The reality of most people’s daily lives is that they never get a chance to get into flow, or even have a period of uninterrupted time to focus on one […]

STUDY HELPS DEFINE TEAM COACHING

Research from two business schools and a management school in the UK has shed light on how to define team coaching, which although becoming more popular has suffered from a lack of distinction from other team interventions.

The project has uncovered eight team coaching themes: Achieving a common or shared goal Focus […]
