Why we have such an increased demand for our ILM coaching and mentoring qualifications

Coaching is one of the most powerful learning and development interventions available when it comes to helping individuals improve their performance and unleash their potential.
It’s ironic then, that despite being in existence for decades, it remains underutilised by many organisations. Coaching and mentoring can help individuals improve performance, conflict resolution and communication and interpersonal skills. It has never quite shed its elitist image, though. The perception is often that coaching is only available for, or useful to, those in executive positions.
Research carried out by ILM, however, reveals that more than four-fifths (84%) of employers believe coaching should be part of every organisation’s management and development programme. In particular, it demonstrates that those that don’t offer coaching are missing out on a powerful tool for effecting organisational change.
This is why we offer the ILM coaching and mentoring qualifications at Levels 3,5 and 7
Coaching can have major benefits when it comes to increasing engagement and boosting productivity in new joiners and returners. Those that have received coaching cite improved confidence, performance and productivity.
