Coaching and mentoring are making a strong return to learning and development as go to strategies for building skills. Learning News asks the coaching specialist, Laura Walker, for her views on how modern coaching is evolving.


Coaching was one of the only areas of learning and development to maintain or improve its ranking in this years' L&D sentiment survey, as the focus on reskilling, a new entrant, pushed other L&D strategies down the list of priorities during the pandemic.

Laura is currently helping Hemsley Fraser, a leadership development and training provider, with its renewed coaching offering. We asked Laura how modern coaching is evolving.
