National Coaching Resources Centre launch mtime20191211132804

Hundreds of print and digital materials are now available through the National Coaching Resources Centre, launched this month by the Henley Centre for Coaching.

The Resources Centre is the depository for all English-speaking coaching, mentoring and supervision-related materials, from the latest coaching books to archive material.

It has been established by Henley Business School, in recognition of a growing history of coach development of the past quarter century. Henley was keen this material was not lost over the coming decades but was collected, catalogued and preserved for future generations of coaches and researchers.

The collection contains hundreds of items, and in addition to shelves of traditional print books, students have access to the library’s digital resources including videos, recordings, e-books and e-journals.

Professor Jonathan Passmore, Professor of Coaching and Behavioural Change at Henley Business School, said:

"This is an amazing resource for coaches, researchers and managers to visit and access hundreds of the latest coaching books, but also scores of coaching journals, digital resources and an archive dating back to the dawn of modern coaching."

The launch event on Thursday 5 December, which was part of the Coaching Centre members’ winter networking event, welcomed Ben Renshaw, author and executive coach, as guest speaker. He spoke with gusto about value of purpose and how it can help make decisions and give direction in today’s disruptive age.

The collection has been generated through donations from members of the coaching team who have given more than 250 titles, and also purchases of new items funded through the new Coaching Alumni Fund, which aims to support this project and also the development of coaching in the developing world.
