Digital coaching platform CoachHub has appointed Jonathan Passmore as senior vice president of coaching as part of its expansion plans.
The professor, executive coach, researcher and author, will lead two in-house teams of experts, Coaching Lab, a team of behavioural scientists global and the Learning Studio, a team of learning engineers.
Passmore and the two teams will collaborate with research institutions and gather insights on human behaviour to develop learning solutions for services such as the CoachHub learning library, learning journeys and the AI-based learning recommendations.
CoachHub co-founder, Yannis Niebelschütz, said, “Jonathan brings decades of scientific knowledge and experience, a global expert network, as well as a deep understanding of the international coaching landscape to the Coaching Lab during our time of meteoric growth.
“We firmly believe that people at all stages of their careers should be able to access quality coaching, and with Jonathan leading our global coaching department we are even better placed to continue providing innovative and scientifically driven digital coaching solutions to people and organisations that need it most.’’
Passmore, who also serves as professor of coaching and behavioural change at the University of Reading’s Henley Business School, leading Henley’s Centre for Coaching, said, “Working with CoachHub’s talented teams of more than 30 dedicated researchers and learning engineers and contributing to their mission of democratising coaching for all will demonstrate the true impact of coaching as it moves away from the privilege of a few, to empowering the workforce as a whole.’’
He said, “At the very heart of this role is building on the science, and leading scientists to collaborate and optimise coaching within their organisations CoachHub is at the cutting edge of the coaching science and set to consolidate as the leader in this space. As a researcher, academic and practitioner, I believe the scientific rigour in coaching must at least match that of other disciplines, moving towards good scientific enquiry.”
