Editor's note
A new survey released this week claims that cowboy operators are
giving coaching services a bad name. The guide, Coaching and
Buying Coaching Services, says that some operators have little
experience, lack training and don't hold the appropriate
knowledge to provide professional coaching services.

The author admits that a lack of agreed standards, ethics and
qualifications in the coaching industry are partly to blame for
'cowboy' operators infiltrating the market.

TrainingZONE member Robin Cox asks, "Is regulation helpful in
the context of coaching?" Share your thoughts with other
