We are working with coaches from within the region, who have undertaken Express Coaching training to support health and care colleagues working across the South West. They will provide focused, short-term support in the form of one virtual coaching session. These are designed to offer a safe space where colleagues can reflect on and explore their concerns, needs and challenges in a constructive way.
Please note; this offer includes one single coaching session. If you are seeking a longer coaching relationship, with multiple coaching sessions, we would welcome you to join our Coaching and Mentoring – South West Leadership Academy Register.
What is Coaching and how can it help?
At its purest, coaching is the art of truly listening and asking questions that help the coachee generate insights and new perspectives to help empower them and move forward in a positive way. This can be achieved in a short space of time in a confidential environment where it feels safe to share vulnerabilities and issues that might otherwise inhibit progress.
What topics can I bring to coaching?
Every coachee has their own unique challenges so people using this service will do so for a whole host of reasons, which might include the following:
- Stress, overwhelm and exhaustion
- Tensions with colleagues, stakeholders, their seniors or people they lead
- A new role, a new team or additional responsibilities
- Increasing pressure, complexity and ambiguity
- Juggling competing workloads
- Impending difficult conversations
- Uncertainty about what to do next
- Issues with confidence, impostor syndrome or managing boundaries
- Simply wanting to feel heard and understood in a non-judgemental way.
