Why Evidence-Based Coaching? 

Over the last two decades the use of coaching as a means of enhancing performance and development in organizations has increased substantially. This trend shows no sign of slowing down.

This event qualifies for 6 CCE points.


Despite the exponential growth in coaching research and increased interest in evidence-based approaches to coaching, there is still a lack of clarity about what constitutes evidence-based coaching.

The term ‘evidence-based’ refers to: “The intelligent and conscientious use of relevant and best current knowledge, integrated with professional practitioner expertise in making decisions about how to deliver coaching to coaching clients and in designing and delivering coach training programs” - Grant, 2016

Using the best available evidence from research, theory and practice, this unique workshop will explore the fundamentals of coaching, including the core theories and techniques of evidence-based coaching used to facilitate individual and cultural change.


What will this full-day workshop cover?

The workshop covers both the “how” of coaching (how to coach) and the “why” of coaching (why it works) – it is results focused, interactive and highly experiential.

Participants will:

  • Understand the nature of evidence-based practice as it relates to coaching;
  • Explore the research in the field of coaching, including the latest research on motivation and the “coaching ripple effect”;
  • Be provided with an overview of a wide range of theoretical perspectives and approaches to coaching;
  • Learn and practice the core micro skills of solution focused coaching;
  • Observe live coaching demonstrations and engage in co-coaching practice; and 
    Receive individual feedback to enhance effective coaching skills and techniques.


Who should attend?

This program is designed for:

  • HR, L&D, OD and Talent professionals who want to learn the fundamentals of coaching theory and practice;
  • Those responsible for coaching and coaching programs within their organization;
  • Those new to coaching or those who wish to explore coaching as a future career;
  • Practicing coaches who want to update their skills to include Evidence Based Practice; and
  • Mid to senior level managers who want to learn to coach their reports and teams more effectively.
