Coaching is a person centred, future focussed and positive development approach.
It is increasingly used in all business settings, including the Health Service across Scotland. It has been shown to be a cost-effective and holistic approach to improving both individual and organisational performance.
In our Board, coaching interventions are always linked to organisational objectives whilst recognising the need for individuals to have support and challenge as part of the coaching process. Coaching is always a confidential and supportive intervention. It is well recognised that when managers take a coaching approach with staff that engagement, motivation and productivity can increase.
The Board has a small bank of professional trained coaches who are able to provide a coaching service. To access this coaching service you need to discuss your needs with your line manager in the first instance. To discuss whether coaching is the right option for you, please contact your OD Advisor or contact one of the following who will be able to help:
