Coaching & Mentoring
Coaching and mentoring are key tools you can use for career development to realise your aspirations, increase your leadership skills, access support through a personal or professional transition as well as increasing your personal resilience. We believe leaders at all levels should have access to coaching and mentoring resources, support and development opportunities.
The NHS North West Leadership Academy (NHS NWLA) Coaching and Mentoring Schemes support a North West Regional Champions Network who are aligned with us to deliver training within their organisation, support coaching and mentoring strategy across the North West and work with us to agilely deploy resources and speak with a credible experience and impact around the ongoing desire for greater inclusivity. Contact us if you would like to find out more about joining our Champions Network.
Coaching is a focused relationship deploying techniques embedded in artful questioning and appreciative inquiry to help leaders unlock their full potential to achieve personal and professional success. In the North West access as a coach or a coachee can be made through our Coaching Hub. We also offer Executive Coaching Support and Coaching Support for Senior Primary Care Network Leaders.
Mentoring is the support and guidance of one individual to another with a focus on professional development and achieving career goals. The emphasis is on the needs of the individual with mentoring encouraging autonomy and self-development while helping to identify opportunities for future development. Mentoring is available to a diverse range of employees and cross-organisational, cross-professional and peer mentoring relationships are actively encouraged. In the North West access as a mentor or a mentee can be made through our Mentoring Hub. Our Mentor Development Programme provides participants with the knowledge and skills to begin mentoring and to also join the NHS NWLA mentoring community.
We provide a high quality, confidential service matching mentees with trained mentors and coachees with experienced and qualified coaches through our coaching and mentoring hubs. You can create a profile, manage relationships, book onto available training and CPD such as our Network Learning Events, access free resources and communicate with other members.
Coaching and Mentoring focuses on building capability to enable people to meet future challenges and champion learning and capability development with many skills that crossover with the Healthcare Leadership Model (HLM). These skills utilise a range of experiences as a vehicle for individual and organisational learning; acting as a role model for personal development. For further information on HLM please click here.
