How often do organisations sign up for coaching, yet it never really seems to happen? Or managers and their teams pay lip service to coaching without really fully embracing it. In this session Dr Janet Curran and Stephanie Sturges present their findings on what needs to be in place within an organisation for coaching to be embraced, and what mindsets do coaches and coachees need to bring to the coaching session in order for the coaching to generate changes in individual behaviour, attitude and/or process. Janet and Stephanie will present the diagnostic tool used to assess organisational, coach and coachee readiness and the results from using it within organisations. As participants you will have the opportunity to review the tool and consider how you could use it within your own organisation or practice.
