We're delighted to announce three new episodes in our podcast collection, Coaching At The Heart.
In the latest episodes we asked some current MF clients to chat to Hugh Reynolds about how coaching is used in their organisation, and how it has helped them.
Here's what they had to say:
Episode 4 - Doctor Peter Brown
Doctor Peter Brown believes (just like we do, here at management futures!) that if you give people the time, space and expertise to grow, they will achieve *amazing* things.
Pete has got a fascinating career background in areas such as elite sport, and optimising performance, where he’s worked as a consultant in Organisational Development and People Management. He’s now assistant director of Organisational Development at a pretty huge NHS Wales organisation – that’s Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, and Pete started off by explaining to us how a health board, in Wales, can be 5 times bigger than a single NHS trust such as we're familiar with in England. Aneurin Bevan covers several hospitals, primary care services and community health work across the county of Gwent.
So with his big role, in a big organisation, with big challenges – we wanted to find out about Pete and how - in his organisational context – he’s putting coaching - and his own coach skills training – to work. Let’s hear more from the man himself, Doctor Peter Brown.
Episode 5 - Marcia Bailey
Marcia Bailey is from the UK Sports Institute which delivers support services that enable sports and athletes to excel. In fact, over the last 20 years, the UK Sports Institute’s work has contributed to over 1000 British Paralympic and Olympic medals. We’ve come to know Marcia and her team really well because – just like Management Futures – they put coaching at the heart of what they do, and one of the ways they do that is to sponsor colleagues to achieve the ILM coaching qualifications that our podcast host Hugh helps to run. But here, we’re jumping the gun. Let’s get set on the starting blocks for an insightful conversation about Marcia, her context and coaching.
Episode 6 - Angeline Cross
Angeline Cross is a Human Resources Senior at Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK. Angeline has recently had some coaching from us. Whilst the content of a coaching conversation always remains confidential, Angeline has been really kind in giving us insight into the process of her coaching experience, and how she's been able to benefit from it. We really hope you enjoy listening in to our chat.
