Coaching for Professional Development, by Joel DiGirolamo, Inrternational Coaching Federation. Coaching can be an effective and integral component of leadership development programs. Popular among human resource professionals and clients, coaching facilitates leaders’ professional growth and helps to build a powerful team—from executives to first-line managers and team leaders. Coaching has a proven track record of success, and many studies have shown how coaching enhances decision-making skills, improves interpersonal effectiveness, and increases confidence. The maturing workforce necessitates thoughtful succession planning, and coaching is often a strategic element of this effort. Integrating coaching into an organization’s culture will ensure the longevity and sustained value of the program.

This white paper is part of a series titled “The Science of HR,” created under a collaborative partnership between SIOP and SHRM to develop resources for HR practitioners that will further the use and understanding of evidence-based HR practices. These resources, available to both SIOP and SHRM members, are specifically intended to infuse the science of I-O psychology and other HR disciplines into management practices for daily use in the workplace.

The SHRM-SIOP Science of HR series provides practitioner-oriented reviews of evidence-based HR practices. These papers, written by leading researchers and practitioners in the field of I-O psychology and HR, make the science of evidence-based HR practices accessible to SIOP and SHRM members.

SIOP is continuously working to develop materials about topics that will be published and distributed by SHRM to its membership. For a full list of collaborative articles, visit the SHRM-SIOP page here. A list of current papers is also available on the SHRM website here.
