[Extract] While there have been many articles written about what coaching is advocating for, its adoption and descriptions of how to coach, little critical, systematic, empirical research has been published about the effectiveness of coaching for either the individual or the organisations they work for (Joo, 2005; Leedham, 2005). Few coaching programmes have been formally evaluated within organisations (McDermott, Levenson & Newton, 2007) and, until recently, little academic research has examined coaching (Kilburg, 2001; Passmore & Gibbes, 2007). Coaching has, however, become a topic of academic interest and there has been a growing number of empirical studies published since 2005 (Ely et al., 2010; Jarvis, Lane & Fillery-Travis, 2006). This emerging empirical literature offers an opportunity to begin to assess the many claims made for and about coaching.
