African coaching research project

This research is being undertaken by Jonathan Passmore, Director of the Henley Centre for Coaching, and builds on work carried out by the Henley Centre for Coaching in Europe in order to explore coaching in Africa. To this end, Henley is working with Coaches and Mentors of South Africa (COMENSA), the African Coaching Council and Stellenbosh University.

People helping climb a hill

The aim of the research project is to extend beyond traditional institutional networks and mainstream approaches, recognising the equal value of all countries and all cultures.

The survey was launched on 1 March 2019 and consists of two streams: one aimed at coaches and the other at those who commission coaching. The research explores coach training, ethics, continuing professional development and practice.
