We are delighted to be working in partnership with Henley Business School, who are providing free coaching sessions for leaders in charities and community groups across Buckinghamshire.
Coaching is a 1-1 conversation which is facilitated by a coach, but is focused on the needs of the client (or coachee) with the objective of supporting them to become more self-aware, take more personal responsibility and through this to become more effective. Coaching is helpful in supporting people resolve a wide range of challenges in their organisations like dealing with a person they find difficult, applying new skills and approaches, overcoming barriers and bringing about change. The coach does not provide the answers, but provides a useful space to talk about an issue and support and challenge the coachee as they work out a solution.
Sessions with a coach generally last for an hour and a half to two hours and take place at Henley, via Skype or at a mutually convenient location. Most coaches meet every 2-5 weeks and meet between 4 and 6 times but this will be down to the coach and coachee to agree.
