A report by Ridler, an executive coaching practice, in collaboration with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council, says most respondents to its survey use coaching to support an individual’s transition after an internal promotion (59 per cent of respondents). Others use it to support new senior appointments from outside the organisation (34 per cent) or to address underperformance – 31 per cent of organisations surveyed used it “often” or “very often” for this purpose.
