Our Aim

To develop a culture in which coaching and mentoring will help preserve and strengthen our capacity for knowledge sharing, enterprise, innovation, individual empowerment, open communication, decision-making, resilience and the flexibility to deal with change. Please watch this short video from our Deputy Vice-Chancellor, outlining the importance of developing a coaching culture at our University.

 

Our Vision

‘To help individuals, teams and departments meet their full potential.'

 

What does a coach do?

A coach’s role at our University is to support staff with specific work challenges. The coach supports the development of the staff member by asking the right questions and assisting them to uncover their own knowledge and skills and change their behaviours. Coaches encourage coachees to deliver a stronger work performance. A coach believes that the coachee has all the tools and resources available within them to work towards their goals. 

 

 

Our internal coaching pool

Working in partnership with other Universities in the region (University of Leeds, Sheffield Hallam and Bradford University), we are working towards expanding our pool of professionally qualified (ILM Level 5) workplace coaches. Our coaching and mentoring lead Christian helps to match coaches and coachees - please contact him if you would like to know more (his details are at the bottom of this page).

 

 

What does a mentor do?

If you have an array of knowledge and experience, why not pass it on to the next generation? If you haven’t been a mentor before but are interested in becoming one, watch this LinkedIn Learning session on Mentoring Others.

 

 

Interested in becoming a mentor?

We are looking for “experienced” colleagues from around our University to become mentors. We match mentors and mentees - please complete this form if you would like to become a mentor, or get in touch if you would like to know more.
