6th ridler report
By Clive Mann, Author of the Ridler Report
The Ridler Report analyses strategic trends in the use of coaching, using data exclusively from organisational sponsors of coaching (rather than external coaching providers). It is an internationally reputed research project which is widely recognised for its influence in shaping the future direction of coaching in organisations. The Ridler Report research programme is led by Ridler & Co, the London-based executive coaching practice.
The latest Ridler Report, is the 6th edition and the second time Ridler & Co has worked in collaboration with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council UK, one of the leading professional coaching bodies. Clive Mann, Managing Director of Ridler & Co, continues to lead the research as the Author and Principal Researcher of the 6th Ridler Report and Chairman of the Ridler Report Executive Board which consisted of Clive Mann, Laura Taylor, Caroline Horner and Chris Jackson, President, EMCC UK 2013-15.
The 6th Ridler Report is sponsored by E.ON UK (headline sponsor) and the sponsors of the four core research themes (coaching evaluation, setting up coaching for success in organisations, team coaching and internal coaching) GSK, Hogan Lovells, Network Rail and News UK respectively. We are very grateful indeed to these organisations for their support.
Professor David Gray of University of Greenwich, the leading international expert in research methodology and author of the highly respected book ‘Doing Research in the Real World’, has provided important consultancy advice to the Ridler Report Executive Board on the report’s research methodology, to ensure continuing high levels of rigour in the research methodology used, at the same time as expanding the range of research methods to include extensive use of focus groups.

Case Study: The Development of Internal Coaching in the Big Four Accountancy Firms in the UK
‘Reasons for engaging a coach are diverse. 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. Another growing trend is “team coaching”. Only 5 per cent of Ridler Report respondents say they have no plans to introduce team coaching in the next three years. It aims to make teams more collaborative and is used in high-performing teams going through change that need to achieve peak performance quickly.’ Click on title to read more…
