Developing and supporting the organisational manager-coach

Research Briefing

Keywords: coaching, management, manager-coach, management development, management support

A concept that has gained much ground in many organisations is the idea of the manager-coach, or managers who have the capability to coach their employees. Whilst there is a lot of research around the development of coaches in general, there is little research around what support managers require in order for them to both develop as good manager-coaches and to maintain their capability to coach their people within the organisational context.

A new study by a team of researchers from the EDHEC Business School, Roubaix, in France and Sydney Business School in Australia has looked at this very issue to see what training managers actually receive and what support is required from their organisations.
