Gina Lodge, CEO of the AoEC is joined by special guests David McLaughlin from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and Katherine Tulpa from the Association for Coaching (AC) to look at manager as coach. As one of the biggest areas of interest in people management and development, where do the boundaries lie between being a manager and being a coach?

We explore this important trend and consider some of the grey areas which are less reported. Just how ethical is managerial coaching and what best practices should line managers use to safeguard and nurture their coaching relationships with their direct reports?
