What’s new in coaching and mentoring with David Clutterbuck



David Clutterbuck is now one of the ‘surviving’ and thriving pioneers in the field of coaching and mentoring, as he jokingly shared with us at the start of the #SDF2017 conference. David introduced and supported mentoring to Europe in early 1980s, co-founded European Mentoring & Coaching Council (now Special Ambassador for the EMCC). David’s full bio including featured articles and additional videos is here.


His highly anticipated and engaging keynote in the #SDF2o17 conference aimed to discuss that coaching and mentoring are going through rapid change as the profession matures and adapts to an evolving environment. David took us through new applications in the field, how our understanding of what “good” looks like is changing, false assumptions and taboos – the impact of an evidence-based approach, how teams rather than individuals are becoming the new focus for coaching and finally the growing role of supervision.
