A Whole Person Learning Approach to Coaching and Mentoring

Exploring the Transformational Impact of a Whole Person Learning Approach to Coaching and Mentoring

Organisations are recognising the power of coaching as a means of enabling change and yet a narrow performance focus is unlikely to enable and sustain the deep transformations required given the pace and complexity of today’s world.

This paper offers a summary of research carried out by Carole-Ann Jones exploring the extent to which a Whole Person Learning approach to Coaching and Mentoring results in transformations in the workplace.

She found that this approach offers meaningful difference to many other approaches and for the people within the case study organisation there was clear evidence of a significant impact both on them, their relationships with other people and the move towards a more distributed leadership environment.
