El análisis de los resultados del coaching ejecutivo: una propuesta de clasificación.

Papeles del Psicologo 01/2012; 33(3):221-226.


The number of studies examining the effectiveness of executive coaching has not been very extensive. However, most of them indicate that executive coaching produced positive results in different aspects of the coachee.

In this paper, we classify these kind of results into three categories, depending on the type of variable it refers to: personal traits, behavior and business results.

We discuss the advantages of using a classification tool like this and we advance some ideas connecting results with professional practice and future research.

    ABSTRACT: The use of an executive or life coach in order to enhance one's work performance or life experience is increasing in popularity. However, there is little empirical research attesting to the effectiveness of executive or life coaching, and there have been few attempts to outline a psychology of coaching. This paper reviews the empirical and theoretical psychological literature on executive and life coaching and, drawing on previous clinical and counselling psychology details a solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural framework for a psychology of coaching. The review finds that there is some measure of empirical support for the effectiveness of coaching, but coaching research is still in its infancy. A number of directions for future research are outlined which may further the establishment of the emerging discipline of coaching psychology.

    ABSTRACT: This paper inquires into the effects of coaching carried out within an evidence based framework highlighting and supporting three generic coaching processes. It focuses on the enhancement of "return on investment" that may result from using (intake and outcome) assessments that make explicit how clients presently manage their mental and emotional disposition and work capability. The paper presents results deriving from coaching focused on potentiating clients' own processes. Since the three coaching processes follow principles of lifespan development, they produce a twofold return: behavioural and developmental. Accordingly, the Return on Investment (ROI) of coaching is equally of a twofold nature: observable (behavioural) and inferable (developmental).
