The coaching sessions happen remotely, via telephone or a videocall system (e.g. Skype, Zoom), with or without a camera. Remote coaching is on the rise because it accommodates the needs of both coachees and coaches.
In a 2019 study conducted by Sherpa Coaching and IQS Research on a sample of 700 coaches and HR professionals globally, data show that the delivery of coaching via telephone and web-based video services nearly doubled the in-person type of delivery.
A 2011 study published in Consulting Psychology Journal found that there is no significant difference in terms of working alliance and problem resolution between in-person and remote (phone/web-based) coaching sessions. And since 2011 the use of technologies like Skype or Zoom has became a routine for any manager. Both coaches and coachees look to utilize all forms of service delivery to best accommodate everyone’s needs.
