Staff Coaching Service

Who is the Staff Coaching Service for?

  • The Staff Coaching Service is for Queen’s staff who would welcome the opportunity to work with a trained coach on a 1:1 basis
  • Initially the service is being offered to particular groups (several groups who have completed a management/leadership development initiative).  It is hoped the service will be offered to a wider audience thereafter.

How do I access the Staff Coaching Service?

You need to complete an application form to access coaching support which includes the following:

  • A brief outline of the topics/area that you would like to address with a coach
  • A commitment from you to attend all coaching sessions that you schedule and to participate fully in these sessions
  • A commitment from you to apply learning and take responsibility for your own development
  • A commitment from you to give feedback on the usefulness/benefits of the coaching service
  • Line manager authorisation is required to apply to work with a Coach.

How does the Staff Coaching Service work?

  • If your application has been successful, you will be matched with a coach as soon as is feasible.
  • You will have an initial meeting with your coach to agree dates, times and venue of your coaching sessions ( a guideline is 4 to 6 x 1 hr sessions within a 3 – 6 month period)
  • The Coaching Conversations will take place in a completely confidential and supportive environment, and the details of the sessions will remain confidential.
  • The coachee and coach agree a focus for the sessions – the issues/area that the coachee wants to see a difference on.

Who are the Coaches?

The coaches are a fully trained cross section of staff who participate in Coaching alongside their main job role.
