A talented and diverse workforce is key to your success. Coaching is recognised to be a powerful way to develop staff and help them to reach their potential. Jenny Ames Consulting can assist by offering one-to-one coaching for your staff personally using e.g. Teams or Zoom.
We are also experienced at working with private coaching clients.
For those of you who are new to coaching, we have written a post to explain what coaching involves. In a nutshell, we aim to provide you with a safe, confidential space to think about and reflect on a challenge you may be facing. You will provide the agenda while we will listen carefully to what you say and ask you questions to help you to consider the challenge in different ways. The aim is to help you to find ways forward. At the client’s request, mentoring is available alongside coaching. Mentoring involves us offering advice based on the depth and breadth of our experience in universities and university research. This distinguishes it from coaching.
Our coaching focus
You may be a university researcher (ranging from research student to research leader). For example, you may be a mid-career academic who needs to get more grants before being considered for promotion. Or you may be a postdoctoral researcher who is wondering about a complete career change.
Alternatively, you may be a researcher or other academic in career transition. For example, you may be thinking about a major career change, such as leaving employment and setting up a business. Or you may have recently been promoted to your first leadership and management role, such as head of a small group or department.
