According to a study on coaching supervision he conducted with Gil Schwenk, 88 percent of organizations and 86 percent of coaches believe that the practice should be implemented. He suggests that purchasers as well as professional bodies should have a discussion about all aspects of coaching, including the cost of supervision. He also stresses that a much-desired coaching culture can be achieved by working together.
