Abstract

This study was designed to explore participant perspectives on coaching effectiveness across a range of different coaching experiences and was guided by a preliminary model of coaching developed from the literature. The primary data were collected from a survey of 114 coachees with a variety of coaching experiences. Results suggested that the main factors contributing to perceived coaching effectiveness were the degree to which the coach was similar to the coachee and the amount of effort and commitment the coachee invested in the coaching process. The results also highlighted the importance of a supportive organisation.
