The latest issue of Harvard Business Review features an in-depth look at the growing emergence of coaching. In ‘The Leader as Coach’, Herminia Ibarra, Charles Handy Professor of Organizational Behaviour at London Business School, and Anne Scoular, cofounder of the Meyler Campbell coaching programme, explore the “dramatic and fundamental shift” whereby “companies are moving away from traditional ‘command-and-control’ practices and toward something very different: a model in which managers give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn how to adapt to constantly changing environments in ways that unleash fresh energy, innovation, and commitment.”
As an organisation that has long espoused this very model, The Berkeley Partnership was asked to provide insight into the valuable role that coaching can play.
