Coaching has become the buzzword. There’s usually a reason for that because it works! We employ people because they have the skills to do the job and then micromanage them and wonder why they get disaffected and leave. Coaching recognises that people have the answers within themselves. This results in happier people and happier workplaces (and more productive too)!

The workshop will cover the following:

  • What coaching is
  • Why you should take this approach - why your business should take a coaching approach 
  • Why you should take this approach NOW - why your business should take a coaching approach NOW (ie in a post-COVID-19 world)
  • Why it works in business (as well as at home with the children)!
  • The power of coaching and a strengths-based approach
  • Who benefits from having a coach
  • Some coaching techniques and tools to get started

About the presenter

Rebecca White is the CEO and Founder of Your Own Place CIC. As a qualified secondary school teacher with years of experience working with people from all backgrounds as well as commissioners, politicians, business people and leaders, Rebecca exemplifies the successful combination of operational, strategic and business experience. What really drives Rebecca is social inequality. By the roll of a dice a person’s life chances are dramatically altered. Homelessness is just one manifestation of this and until people have equality of opportunity Rebecca will work tirelessly to champion disadvantaged people.

Rebecca volunteers as a mentor for HMP Warren Hill and as Enterprise Adviser at The Locksley School.

Your Own Place CIC is an innovative and solution-focussed social enterprise, driven by its values. We are committed to finding new solutions to old problems with the prevention of homelessness as our impact.
