Webinar summary:

Even before COVID-19, technology was a catalyst in changing the ways in which coaching could be delivered. However, virtual coaching was not widespread and research findings tended to suggest that both coaches and coachees thought face-to-face coaching was the most effective (and most preferred) delivery mode. As technology-aided modes of coaching such as by phone, video conversations and webinars have quickly become the norm, how can we ensure they work as well as possible for our employees and leaders? 

This webinar covered:

IES will preview its international survey results on coachees’ perceptions of the effectiveness of different delivery modes.  We will also share insights and reflections from a large UK organisation which introduced at scale and pace a virtual coaching offer to support the wellbeing and resilience of all  its employees. With 2,000 staff accessing the coaching since its launch in April 2020 and several months of experience and evaluation data to reflect upon, this is a case study worth hearing.
