UK Coaching has today, Monday 3 June 2019, marked the start of the second ever Coaching Week by making a #GreatCoachingPledge to help coaches across the nation benefit their communities.

Chief Executive of UK Coaching, Mark Gannon, confirmed that the organisation will be committed to helping coaches in the UK improve upon and grow their people skills by providing cutting-edge workshops, a digital subscription service and engaging content on its website,

Research conducted by UK Coaching found that coaches rate their experience of being a coach positively, however, some feel that their coaching journey could have been improved with additional support, with 44% of coaches stating that they would have liked help from others when coaching.

David Pond, Chief Executive of GBWR said, ‘Great coaching is much more than just delivering a set of skills to a group of participants. Coaching needs to be values based, and delivered in a way which recognises the different needs which participants will have. GBWR is pleased to support UK Coaching’s Coaching Week and commitment to investing in people skills’.
