The team at the West Yorkshire Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub are opening their successful coaching training to Third Sector colleagues.

Most of us use coaching skills and approaches every day. Growing evidence suggests effective coaching skills contribute to personal well-being, innovation, care outcomes, teamworking and leadership effectiveness. Despite pressures and constraints in the care sector investment in coaching has grown reflecting the value of more person-centred approaches that create ownership, engagement and meaningful accomplishment. During the pandemic staff and volunteers accessing coaching have demonstrated maintenance or improvements in wellbeing compared to those who have not. Our sessions are open to all staff and volunteers and are designed to help participants improve their use of coaching skills in everyday conversations that matter.

As part of the training you will have the opportunity to engage in a 1-to-1 coaching session arranged at a mutually convenient time.
