What is the impact of coaching and mentoring? For organisations it benefitted in the development of:-
• Reflective, collaborative culture
• culture of professionalism and recognition around professional and career development
• culture of high aspirations and vitality
• enhanced personal effectiveness and the ability to work smarter and not harder
• the development of techniques for constructively challenging unhelpful behaviours, including negativity and limiting beliefs
• enhanced energy and job satisfaction
• increased personal productivity, which led directly to a return on investment in coaching and mentoring for the organisation

This day aims to develop your personal coaching skills and how to develop this in others
