Part of the benefit of the coaching programmes has been the constructive conversations you have had with each other, sometimes facilitated and sometimes over coffee! Peer 2 Peer coaching will introducing you to coaching skill sets while supporting each other through enhanced 1-1 conversations. Coaching creates a context for a particular type of conversation, one that often creates a new perspective on a situation while challenging the coachee to take actions to change their situation. You’ll find coaching skills offer a powerful way to hold conversations with your peers, with researchers, mentees, PhD students, as well as with students.
You will come away with:
A self-coaching skill-set that enhances your own self-understanding
Peer-coaching skills that change the type of conversation you have with colleagues, generating a non-threatening and non-evaluative relationship that is both challenging and supportive
A commitment to fostering a further sense of community amongst 50th ALs
The learning of these skills is not abstract - it is directly applied to your work through experiential and interactive learning. The programme involves an initial 1 day workshop, 6* fortnightly assigned coaching conversations (30 mins as coach, 30 mins coaching), a supervision call and a final half-day workshop.
