Less is More: Harnessing the power of virtual coaching


Presented by: Moira McLaughlin
13th February 2018 - hosted by Guildford Regional Network (venue tbc)

Our use of virtual coaching is growing year on year, yet it is often considered ‘second best’ to face-to-face working. However, research suggests that virtual coaching can be a powerful, highly flexible and creative intervention – one which offers coach and client more than a distance coaching tool.  Studies also indicate that a different skill set is required to optimise its effectiveness and sense of ease for all participants. This practical session invites you to extend your understanding of the complexity of the virtual space and the key skills involved in working with telephone and Skype - an ideal opportunity to develop your practice, your awareness and your confidence in this expanding area. 
Key areas 
Virtual coaching – what’s happening?
Working with audio   
The dynamics of the virtual space: benefits and challenges
How to optimise the virtual space

Why attend?
Extend your understanding of the nature of the virtual space
Identify key benefits and challenges of virtual coaching
Learn practical ways of optimising the power of virtual (audio/Skype) coaching 

Creating a Thinking Environment

“How do we develop independent thinking to enhance performance?”

Nancy Kline

Building Resilient Teams and Improving Performance 

Presented by: Sheila Stokes-White
Second Quarter – Thames Valley Network (date and venue tbc)
This workshop is about helping people to improve their performance at work. In order to retain valuable staff organisations need to inspire, stimulate and value them. 
We consider positive ways in which leaders and managers can do this gaining the trust and confidence of staff by adopting a mentoring style, approach and method. It explores how creativity and innovation can transform the way in which people work together and develop their unique contribution.  The use of internal mentors within the organisation enables them to offer their own operational experience as the key learning tool and create a continuous focus on empowering leadership.  
Outcomes include 
? Embedding a mentoring approach 
? Motivating, enthusing and retaining staff. 
? Creating a culture of respect and empowerment
? Developing empowering leadership 
? Clarity about roles and responsibilities reducing potential for mistakes
