Mentoring and coaching programmes

Cross sector mentoring programme
We are working with ten middle managers at Midland Heart to help them develop a more commercial outlook and entrepreneurial drive. The programme is led by mentors and leaders from private and third sector organisations. Six mentoring sessions and four workshops are taking place over a seven-month period.

From the mentors the participants are learning about the operational pressures of working in a commercial environment, developing their strategic and lateral thinking skills. They are finding out about and making the most of best practice from elsewhere.

Diversity mentoring programme
We will shortly be piloting a diversity mentoring programme with a difference – BME and disabled employees will be the mentors.

Despite huge improvements in diversity of the workforce and in service delivery, gaps remain. Our programme will help senior managers with the skills needed to manage a diverse workforce, and to provide services for hard-to-reach customers. The programme can be used for groups of middle or senior managers or on a one-to-one basis.

One-to-one coaching and mentoring
Our one-to-one coaching and mentoring support is tailored individually.
