'Coaching style of management' recommended by CIPD
With staff coaching increasingly becoming the responsibility of line managers, a more participative style of management is required, claims the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

In a report launched this week, the CIPD called for a coaching style to be adopted in a bid to motivate employees in the current economic climate.

However, it warned that employers who wish to make this ethos intrinsic to their operations need to ensure line managers see the new approach as a business issue, rather than a learning and development duty that has been foisted upon them.

"Both learning and development and coaching and mentoring have roles in design and support, but if line managers are to engage then coaching needs to have the imprint of a business strategy," explained Dr John McGurk, learning, training and development adviser at the CIPD.

The institute recently called on human resources departments to put frameworks in place to better aid managers to monitor the performance of staff.
