It is important that the benefits of coaching relationships are measured. This lets us evaluate the effectiveness of this approach, identify organisational learning and assure the quality of the coaching.
Individual coaching relationships will be evaluated regularly throughout three stages of the relationship:
- in the initial stages of the relationship (within 6-12 weeks of the matching and pairing process)
- at the end of the relationship
- six months after the end of the relationship
The purpose of the evaluation is to ensure the relationships are forming well and that they are proving to be purposeful and successful.
In respect of the confidential nature of the scheme neither coach nor coachee will be expected to impart detailed information about the content of their relationship. We do require both parties to give an overview of the main objectives, achievements and purpose of the relationship so that we can show the business benefits of the scheme.
