Conference Paper

Abstract


  • This paper looks at how Australian managers perceive the training they receive

    from their organisations in order to meet increasing expectations that they coach their

    employees. 580 managers in Australian organisations provided information regarding their

    coaching training experiences, and that which they would ideally like to obtain, from their

    organisation. The level of coaching training varied widely from coaching-specific training to no

    preparation at all. Any training provided was generic coaching training. From our findings we see a

    distinct need for tailored and more detailed training opportunities for managers, a more structured

    and coordinated approach to within-organisation coaching initiatives.
