As the 1000th delegate went through our Intensive Coaching Skills (ICS) Programme in May, we decided to celebrate the milestone by sponsoring one lucky participant from May’s programme to go on and complete their ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring.

We’re delighted to announce that Lisa Godfrey of NHS Elect is our winner – and she can’t wait to carry on her learning and development journey!

A long-term relationship

Lisa first worked with Management Futures around a decade ago and, remembering how helpful the coaching she received was, she was excited to be undertaking an intensive coaching skills programme with an organisation she respected.

The MF ICS Programme has been designed to introduce delegates to the key coaching principles and skills required to build a successful coaching relationship. With real-issue demonstrations and lots of opportunities to practice, participants gain the insights and tools required for immediate business application.

Despite finding the workshop very intensive - with lots of content to absorb and a completely new way of working - by the end of the week Lisa felt very comfortable with the new learning.

Lisa commented: “I was impressed with the skills and expertise of the facilitators and found the course content and role modelling to be very good. Having time for self-reflection was really powerful in terms of embedding the learning and I also found it really interesting to challenge my self-limiting beliefs.”

Following the ICS programme Lisa has already found two coaching clients and one of the people she practised with during the programme has asked that she carry on the coaching support which has been really helpful to her ongoing learning.

Further development

Lisa is now looking forward to claiming her prize and undertaking the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring – fully funded by MF. 

As Lisa explains: “I had already planned to do the Certificate so it was amazing to win and receive this funding from Management Futures. I never usually win anything! What’s more, my employer has agreed to support me in completing the full Diploma so now everything is in place to enable me to carry on learning to as high a level as possible alongside my day-to-day work.”
