CIPD conference highlights coaching as a way to enhance organisation performance
CIPD Coaching Conference, 28 September, London
A major challenge for organisations today is to align their coaching initiatives with the strategy of the business, in order to improve performance and deliver results. This complex challenge can only be achieved through a carefully implemented coaching programme and a thorough evaluation process, a practical issue tackled at the latest Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Coaching Conference, where the Real World Coaching Evaluation guide will also be launched.
The conference provides an in-depth insight into coaching within organisations. It demonstrates how to use coaching as a tool to motivate and retain employees, how to position and embed coaching within organisations and the importance of measuring and evaluating coaching activity.

• Lisa McCandless, People Development Manager, Premier Foods
This year's conference also offers a special afternoon workshop on - Coaching through conflict - giving practical tools and techniques for dealing with workplace conflict constructively.
John McGurk, CIPD Adviser Learning and Talent, says, "The CIPD Coaching Conference will provide the perfect platform to discuss the issues faced in the workplace today and just how effective coaching can be in developing and moulding talent. The 2010 CIPD Learning and Development survey showed that more than two-thirds of organisations questioned do not currently evaluate their coaching programmes. Without any sort of evaluation an organisation's coaching initiatives are left vulnerable to both financial and resourcing pressures, which could be particularly dangerous in tough economic times."
