Professor Anthony Forster, vice-chancellor of the University of Essex, is supportive of coaching for senior sector leaders:
One-to-one coaching can really help you think through challenges from a variety of different angles, provide a safe space to explore issues, and encourage self-reflection....it is often a transformative experience
What is Executive Coaching and how can it benefit you?
The Leadership Foundation coaching service is constantly evolving and improving its practice and its availability to the most senior leaders in the sector.
We created the Leadership Coaching Service, dedicated to Higher Education, about three years ago and it has grown quite substantially since then. We have brought together and developed a group of very experienced coaches, all of whom have worked in a substantial range of institutions in the sector.
We are increasingly asked to offer this service to those in the most senior positions, and we have recently repositioned the service to offer at that level. This builds on our experience of coaching on the Top Management Programme and our practice of confidential advice and support to Vice-Chancellors.
In our experience, our coaching can offer senior leaders:
As we are sure you would realise, it is vital that you feel absolutely comfortable in the coaching relationship. We spend a lot of time on the matching process, and from time to time offer opportunites of 'taster' sessions to try it out first.
