I found the coaching sessions particularly useful. I was able within a supportive but challenging environment to think through issues and to prioritise tasks. I felt able to speak freely and to explore strengths and weaknesses of both myself and the people I manage. This was very helpful in clarifying my thoughts on how to move forward in a period of significant change. Feedback was extremely useful and supportive. I really enjoyed the coaching sessions, they made me feel valued and positive.

What is leadership coaching?
Leadership coaching is designed to help facilitate professional and personal development to the point of individual growth and improved performance. It unlocks a leader's potential, enabling positive individual and organisational change. It's a secure, confidential space in which leaders are supported and challenged to reflect, discuss and then take action.
Leadership coaching benefits both the individual and the organisation as a whole – it's explicitly directed at improving an individual’s leadership capability, so helping their organisation to thrive.
