What is coaching?

Coaching is a structured conversation with a measurable outcome that is collaborative and in the service of the person being coached, aiming to help them reach their potential at work.

Coaching conversations identify strengths and challenges, explore options for sustainable change, help to set goals, and gain commitment for actions.

It is most useful to bring a specific issue you want to work on to the coaching session.

What coaching isn't

Coaching is not performance management nor is it counselling. Expert advice and solutions are not a feature of the coaching conversation - the focus is on the staff member and coach working together to identify options, goals and actions.

Once you have selected a date and morning or afternoon option, Naomi will be in touch the week before to set up a 60 minute appointment time with you.  Sessions are available via Teams.
