Will vary but typically will comprise one to six sessions with your coach, dependent on the extent of your need. Each session will last one to two hours.
Generally, face to face in your workplace or that of the coach. Alternatively, the sessions can take place at POD House (31 Pritchatts Road) if the room is booked with POD in advance. Telephone coaching may also be an option, depending on need and circumstance.
Who it is suitable for
You will be a member of academic, academic-related or support staff, who needs specific and tailored support to help resolve a work-related issue or who wants to develop a particular skill. Please note, coaching is a form of development and is neither a remedial activity nor a substitute for line management. Furthermore, it is not counselling or a ‘listening ear’.
You will need to submit a short business case to access coaching support, which will include the following:
- Approval from your line manager
- A commitment from you to attend all coaching sessions that you schedule and to participate fully in these sessions
- A commitment from you to do any off-line work that you and your coach decide is appropriate.
Once POD has approved the business case, you will be matched with a coach from the coaching academy.
What you will be able to do after the programme
You will be able to resolve the work-related issue in question and/or have a tailored plan for your own development which you yourself will take forward to work on.
This will vary. The coach will initiate a coaching contract, Three Way Contract Form, in the first meeting to ensure that both parties agree what will be covered and what will be excluded, as well as how both parties will work together. The coach will encourage you to share what comes out of the coaching sessions with your line manager. However, the coach will not report back from the sessions in any way.
However, at the end of the coaching programme, Coaching Outcome Review, the coach will meet with you and your line manager to review the success of the programme against the outcomes agreed at the beginning of the programme.
