coaching, effectiveness, human resources management


Coaching has great opportunities to make positive impact on the development of organizational human resources and organizational capacity as a whole. In Latvia, coaching is not sufficiently developed, partly due to the lack of understanding of its effectiveness. The aim of the research is to perform an analysis of the effectiveness of coaching in human resources management. The theoretical research on the effectiveness of coaching was carried out by using findings of various researchers. An empirical study was carried out at the State Employment Agency of Latvia. The proposals for the development of coaching in Latvia are developed. The following research methods are used: content analysis, comparative analysis, synthesis, and the abstract and logical construction methods. Coaching implementation proposals could be used to develop organizational training strategies.
