At Management Futures we give people the confidence and skills they need to perform at their very best.
Last year we were commissioned by the NHS North West Leadership Academy to pilot a series of two-day Intensive Coaching Skills programmes for Clinicians at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust and Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust.
We worked with clinicians from a range of specialisms including Neurosurgery, Spinal Surgery, Psychiatry, Paediatrics, Dermatology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Anaesthetics and Renal.
Our aim was to find out how effective coaching skills could be in helping clinicians to improve their performance with patients, colleagues, teams and those who they manage or supervise.
Participants were asked for feedback at the end of two days and were then recontacted after eight weeks to see if they had been able to make use of the skills. We also asked for their thoughts about the potential for coaching and what may be needed to support any future activity.
