2024 L&D Trends: Why Coaching Should Be on Your Radar

2024 L&D Trends: Why Coaching Should Be on Your Radar

Here at VPS, we’re excited to announce the upcoming release of our VPS Business Learning & Development Priorities Report, 2024. This explores the latest trends shaping the L&D landscape, drawing on insights from interviews with industry leaders across sectors.

One key trend we’ve identified is the resurgence of coaching, emerging as the most popular learning delivery method globally in 2024, at a staggering 47%.  And the benefits extend far beyond popularity. Research (1) shows a clear link between coaching and business success: high-performing companies are 63% more likely to invest in coaching solutions for their workforce.

So, you’re ready to harness the power of coaching in your organization. But where do you begin? Here are some key considerations:

Choosing Your Coaching Format: One-on-One vs. Group

One-on-One Coaching: Provides a highly personalized experience, allowing for deep dives into specific goals and challenges. This format is ideal for leadership development, performance improvement plans, and areas requiring confidentiality.

Group Coaching: Fosters collaboration, knowledge sharing, and peer-to-peer learning. It’s a cost-effective option for broader skill development or team-building initiatives.

Finding the Right Frequency

Research (1) indicates employees favor more frequent coaching sessions, with a majority preferring weekly or monthly interactions.

Effective Management and Measurement

Tracking progress is essential for any learning program. Most modern Learning Management Systems (LMS) offer functionalities to manage coaching programs for individuals and groups.  Implement evaluations and link coaching efforts to performance metrics to demonstrate the program’s impact on business results.
