Effectiveness in Coaching Network (NWC)
Coaching as a co-creative act between the stakeholder groups involved
Why a network?
The Effectiveness in Coaching Network (NWC) is association of practitioners – coaches, representatives of professional associations, and researchers – who are interested in further development and critical examination of coaching.
Why focus on the term effectiveness?
Whether or not coaching will prevail in the long term depends on several factors. The crucial issue is effectiveness. Describing and achieving effectiveness in coaching is a co-creative act between all stakeholder groups involved: coaches, coaches, organizations, professional associations, and research – and hence a network.
