Business coaching has become a popular tool for human resource management with a number of advocates making a variety of claims about its benefits and practice. Despite its popularity, until recently there has been little published systematic empirical research into business coaching.

This study clarified factors that make coaching effective and should be included in the coaching process. Six hundred and forty four industry professionals who had been through or were currently going through the coaching process responded to a questionnaire.

The findings focus on the main components involved in the coaching process: the coach, the coachee, the organisation, the coaching process and the relationship between coach and coachee.
