Coaching Research and Knowledge Exchange

Find some of our latest coaching research projects, articles and more below:

Our knowledgeable team bring together diverse expertise and experience to answer key questions at the forefront of coaching. We translate our findings into easy to digest information, so organisations and coaches can maximise the impact of their coaching.

All of our RKE activity relates back to one key question – Why coaching?

Within this space, we focus on some more specific areas:

  1. What conditions need to be in place to make coaching effective with individuals and teams, including how best to train coaches?
  2. What is a coaching culture? How do you effectively manage a coaching culture within organisations, including ensuring the skill of coaches, the quality of coaching and the governance of coaching?
  3. What outcomes can we expect from coaching and how can we evidence these?
  4. How can coaching be used to further social justice and deliver equity, diversity and inclusion?
  5. How will technology help us to deliver effective coaching now and in the future?
