Coaching Squared is a pioneering, cross-organisational initiative designed to boost the confidence and career prospects of managers through a nine month development programme.
The programme provides a platform for participants (at middle and senior manager level) with a similar level of experience to meet and select an independent peer from another organisation to act as co-coaching partner.
Participants learn how to coach and together set an action plan to support each other in achieving career goals. It is an opportunity to exchange business experience and work on personal progression in a safe and confidential environment with someone from outside of their own organisation.
Learning is reinvested into the organisation through increased confidence, new ways of working and clearer career development goals.
Coaching Squared is an ILM Approved Development Programme.
