To learn more about how the coaching and mentoring landscape is changing, surveyed over 300 professionals. The study found that coaching and mentoring will maintain and increase their importance over the next two years.

“The stakeholders across the organisation have seen a real shift in behaviours of the leaders, the individuals themselves are reporting that they are much more confident and able to deal with the challenges that their day to day role faces, and their people leaders are telling us they are able to give them more accountability, more responsibility and really shift the behaviour we want for our 2025 strategy.”
