Editor's note
Matt Tobutt's article on the future for coaching prompted many
of you to comment on some of the efforts being made by
organisations to regulate this area of training and development.
But with so many coaching bodies vying to self-regulate, is it
really as Jenny Rogers commented an area where chaos will
continue for the foreseeable future?
Have your say:
The Insider will be back on December 29 with details of our top
50 features over 2004. In the meantime the TrainingZONE team
wishes you a very happy Christmas!
