Coaching Impacts

Coaching Impacts is a one-year project to increase knowledge and understanding about just how much coaching makes a difference. CIAO believes coaching is an effective new tool to help people who face significant inequalities change their own lives for the better and we are very grateful a funder, the Oak Foundation, approached us to invest in this work.

Coaching Impacts includes mapping who else coaches clients who are socially excluded nationally and internationally and a review of the existing evidence of coaching’s effectiveness in any context. We’ll use this to inform which of coaching’s many benefits we want to measure and how best to do so.

We’d be delighted if you’d link up with us to:

  • Put your coaching on the ‘map’. Add it here.
  • Share evidence of coaching’s impact and any ideas with us by email.
  • Find out who else is coaching. Take a look here.
  • Keep up to date with Coaching Impacts. ‘Follow’ CIAO (below on a mobile) or ‘Get email updates’ (on the right on the full site) and we’re on Twitter #CoachingImpacts @CIAOcoaches.

We want this to be highly relevant for similar interventions. It will also build on CIAO’s existing evidence and evaluation. We’ll share all the learning widely and freely to benefit as many as possible.
