Coaching and mentoring


Coaching is one of the key approaches through which leadership in organisations can be developed.

It’s a method of deploying techniques embedded in artful questioning and appreciative inquiry to help leaders unlock their full potential to achieve personal and professional success.

Whether as a one-to-one focused and bespoke relationship or within a group context, coaching is often perceived as the single most effective development intervention our staff can access.

The South East Coaching and Mentoring Register is an easy-to-use platform to find a coach or a mentor at any point in your professional career if you are looking for a longer term coaching relationship.

Mentoring is very different to coaching. Support and guidance of a mentee is often led by a more experienced, skilled and knowledgeable professional mentor.

The emphasis is on developing the leadership expertise of the mentee in a work context, with the process of mentoring encouraging independence, autonomy and self-development.

Through embedding reflective practice, shared learning and improved ownership for solution-focused thinking, mentoring can deliver improvements in an individual’s performance that lead to enhanced leadership maturity.
