ICF Releases New Research on Coaching and Change Management
New ICF research conducted in collaboration with the Human Capital Institute (HCI) demonstrates the vital role coaching can play in ensuring the success of an organization’s change management initiatives.
Building a Coaching Culture for Change Management is the latest edition of ICF and HCI’s signature research suite on coaching in organizations. The research report is based on more than 400 survey responses from managers, leaders, internal coach practitioners and individual contributors, as well as in-depth interviews with five subject-matter experts.
The research reveals that coaching is one of the most helpful ways to develop change management capabilities inside an organization. The most frequently cited learning and development activities for change management are classroom training, e-learning and face time with senior leaders. However, respondents rated coaching activities as the most helpful in achieving the goals of change management initiatives.
Fifteen percent of respondents’ organizations met ICF and HCI’s criteria for strong coaching cultures. Further, the research demonstrated that these organizations were more likely to have better talent and business outcomes than organizations without strong coaching cultures.
The final report, available at coachfederation.org/research/building-a-coaching-culture, is free for ICF Members and $40 USD for non-members.
