By Janine Everson and Craig O’Flaherty, Directors of the Centre for Coaching, UCT Graduate School of Business Only a decade or so has passed since leading South African organisations began to access and integrate the modality of coaching into the running of their organisations. Like all new trends, there are always early-adopters, who take the risk to experiment with a fresh application and make their mistakes until the impact starts to show, but the experimental phase is over. "Local organisations are starting to understand the power of a blended model – where both external and internal coaches can be integrated [...]
Executive coaching as a standard leadership development tool A new study by the Centre for Coaching at the University of Cape Town‟s Graduate School of Business (UCT GSB) has revealed that tailoring coaching techniques to a specific corporate environment can increase customer satisfaction, improve productivity and boost the bottom line.

Leading International Coaching Centre opens in Geneva, Switzerland The University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business’ Centre for Coaching (CFC) is expanding to Western Europe, opening a new base in Geneva, Switzerland.

It is designed for participants to acquire the competency, emerging as coaching practitioners, and is thus particularly well adapted to professionals currently ...
New research shows that Coaching Circles are emerging as the natural successor to action learning as the best way to develop people and build strong, resilient organisations. By Janine Everson & Craig O'Flaherty Ask any HR professional what their number one concern is and they are likely to tell you: talent - how to recruit it and how to develop it. Organisations today demand leaders and managers who are adaptive, resilient and intelligent and able to solve complex problems under extreme pressure, and it is getting harder to find and motivate people who are up to the task.
by Craig O’Flaherty and Janine Everson The search for new insights on leadership and leadership development appears to be insatiable. Indian scholar and spiritual leader Sri Sathya Sai Baba in his Mahavakya* on Leadership remarks: “There are more than 350 definitions for the word Leadership in academic literature in the English language alone. It indicates the general confusion that prevails about the subject and also its complexity”. (Chibber 1995) Some scholars ((Arthur et al. 1999-2000; Day 2000) postulate that the intense focus on leadership development has arisen through the urgent need for organisations to find ways of building capacity to [...]
