Commitment to coaching

The client must be prepared to commit to the coaching sessions and dedicate time to the process.

Expert coaches

All of the NHS Elect coaching team are experienced, trained members of the Association for Coaching. They undertake regular supervision, CPD and abide by the global code of ethics.

Bespoke programmes

Each client’s needs are different, so a bespoke programme is always agreed to best suit them.

A range of techniques
A number of coaching tools and techniques will be utilised to help develop insight and awareness.
A flexible approach
Our coaching team will agree how and where your coaching happens. This could be in person, online or more commonly, a combination.

The coaching contract

All coaching sessions are confidential between the client and the coach. In some circumstances, with client permission, feedback can be agreed and given to the sponsoring manager.

Prior to commencement of coaching there is usually a call between the coachee and a member of the faculty to clarify the process and agree next steps.

All clients are asked to ‘contract’ with their coach. This will require a commitment to the programme; attendance at agreed meetings; a set of objectives for the coaching experience and an agreement to give feedback to the coach.

Members of NHS Elect can access lots of useful coaching resouces, including tutorial videos and articles.
