Design/methodology/approach – Provides a viewpoint on the coaching and mentoring field drawing on research from Europe and the US.

Increasing professionalisation with the coaching and mentoring sector is being helped by dialogue between the various bodies representing coaches and mentors and by the spread of supervision. Originality/value – The article provides a succinct overview of the current position of the corporate coaching and mentoring arena and offers insights into how the field will develop in the future.
