Project Lift Digital Coaching Pilot – Applications Open Now!

 

We are excited to be offering a first for Project Lift – a Digital Coaching Pilot!

We believe that coaching is a valuable and impactful development tool that can benefit everyone and this supports our belief that there are elements of leadership in every role and we have leaders at all levels in any role.

A formal coaching arrangement involves a conversation, or series of conversations, between an individual and a coach and the aim of the coaching conversation  is to ‘unlock people’s potential to maximise their own performance’ (Tim Galloway).  It is helping them learn rather than teaching them (John Whitmore).

Coaching often comprises a series of conversations where you will start with a key development aim or objective guided by your coach and then explore behaviours, preferences and ways of working that bring relevant and helpful leadership elements to your everyday role. Your coach will support you in moving forward in your journey as a leader, whatever your starting point.

We know there are those who have completed the Project Lift SAQ who are unlikely to request, or have access to, a face to face coaching relationship through role, level, work patterns, location or personal situations. Therefore we are piloting this Digital Coaching offering in partnership with Know You More to see if this can be an effective, impactful and relevant opportunity for anyone in these situations.

Coaching is  available to anyone who has completed the SAQ and who is willing to engage in a fully digital coaching relationship.  We are taking this step as we believe in the impact that coaching can have and are pushing the boundaries on what different ways of offering development can do to open up accessibility to colleagues everywhere in Health and Care in Scotland.

Would you like to experience quality one to one coaching, delivered digitally with one of Know You More‘s brilliant coaches? Sessions will be arranged through the online platform, accessed from any device you prefer to use and through skype, zoom, whatapp or any other app agreed between you and your coach.

As this is a pilot it is free – we will cover the cost, all you need to do is review your SAQ report and consider your development needs and apply! Places are limited and applications will be reviewed and offered weekly for as long as places are available.

So what are you waiting for? Have a look at your SAQ, develop the leadership in your role and we will bring you into our digital coaching pilot to help you live your potential!
