Much  work on coaching to date has highlighted the importance of relationships between coachees and their coaches, so here we’ve looked at both coach factors and coaching relationship factors that affect the achievement of coaching outcomes.

The paper also offers some practical advice for organisations and on improving coaching components of everyday work routines for internal coaches and managers.

This paper is the third in the Coaching Effectiveness Series. The series explores aspects of business coaching and this paper explores the factors that make an effective coach.
