Coaching is one of the key approaches through which leadership in organisations can be developed. It’s a method of deploying techniques embedded in artful questioning and appreciative inquiry to help staff unlock their full potential to achieve personal and professional success.

Coaching can be for everyone.

Whether as a one-to-one focused and bespoke relationship or within a group context, coaching is often perceived as the single most effective development intervention that a leader in the NHS can access.

How do I find a coach?

When looking for a coach please decide whether you would like your coach to be someone who has a similar of different background. A coach who has the same background to yours may have had the same experiences as you so will be well equipped to support you. However if you chose a coach that has a different background they may guide you to look at the issues that challenge you more globally rather than in the specific context. Once you have decided you can approach coaches via the ECT Coaching Register or via the North West Leadership Academy.
