Coaching is “Unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.” John Whitmore

Are you in a research-related role (a researcher, academic, professional services, or technical staff), and currently working through a challenge or transition? Perhaps you’re rethinking a grant or paper after rejection, plotting your next career move, or dealing with uncertainty in your work?

How does it work?

Our rigorously trained coaches work on a one-to-one, confidential and voluntary basis alongside a range of academic professional services roles across the university. Single session coaching is based on you having a specific challenge or question that you would like to work through in a 1 hour online session.

Coaching can help you discover ways to:

  • address specific work-related challenges around people or projects
  • address issues relating to career development
  • develop greater self-awareness
  • identify goals and potential barriers
  • feel empowered to take action.

You can find out more about what coaching is (and is not) here.

What happens afterwards?

We will ask you to give us feedback on the session to help us continue to learn from and improve our coaching services.

If you have a productive session and would like to continue coaching – you can complete a request online.

To sign up, please:

Make sure you have a specific topic to address

Make sure you are comfortable with the coaching contract
