Chapter 4 is the cornerstone of this book in terms of its contribution to the executive coaching field. It offers valuable information to academics and practitioners about the existing evidence on executive coaching outcomes. It starts by noting the field’s growing interest in evidence-based coaching and then refers to personality and ability assessment inventories being used in coaching interventions. The findings from the systematic review of executive coaching outcome studies are presented, along with tables that summarize the data. The analysis includes how the coaching practice is presented in these outcome studies, the types of outcomes examined (including quantitative outcomes such as return on investment and qualitative outcomes), as well as some unanticipated findings. Areas of promise and concern within the existing executive coaching outcome research are discussed. It concludes with a brief discussion on the effectiveness of executive coaching compared to other leadership development interventions.

Keywords:   evidence-based coaching, executive coaching outcomes, systematic review, return on investment, quantitative, qualitative, unanticipated findings, coaching effectiveness, leadership development
