ILM | Coaching and Talent Management webinar

Coaching is widely used in talent management programmes, and is often identified as one of the most effective interventions for career and leadership development. 

In this webinar, we talked about:

  • The specificities of talent coaching compared to other dyadic helping interventions
  • The factors that support successful talent coaching interventions
  • How talent is ill-defined in practice and how this impacts the talent coaching relationship
  • The power dynamics at play in talent coaching and how to approach them 
  • The ethical challenges involved in talent coaching
  • The Talent Coaching Matrix

The webinar was presented by Dr Karine Mangion-Thornley, a senior lecturer in Organisation Studies at the University of the West of England (UWE).
