The Center for Creative Leadership Handbook of Coaching in Organizations
Douglas D. Riddle Emily R. Hoole Elizabeth C. D. Gullette
This chapter explores cross‐cultural coaching and covers a variety of issues of cultural diversity within the coaching context. It distinguishes aspects of coaching from cross‐cultural coaching in leadership development, provides some practical guidelines for when cross‐cultural coaching is indicated and how it can be integrated into human resource strategy. The chapter then presents DeLay and Dalton's (2006) discussion of coaching across cultures to address important issues to consider when coaching and the theoretical frameworks they considered. It reviews a broad range of theoretical models and research in the field, then considers the implications for practice and the development of competence in effective cross cultural coaching. The chapter presents the practical implications for HR systems and how HR leaders can build professional and systems capabilities in this area. It poses some questions for future consideration in the arena of cross‐cultural coaching research and practice.
