I have defined a strategy which sets out how we will take forward patient care across Nursing, Midwifery and AHPs in NHSO. I have pushed staff to deliver on agreed targets – rather than me completing for them. I am clearer in my feedback to folks – rather than continually trying to soften the blow (but still retain my values).
Coaching - Case Study
I emerged from my coaching a much stronger person with additional tools in my skills box to utilise in various situations. I am clearer; more confident in own abilities again; clearer presentation to Board; articulate the vision better. I am clear on my values and what I want for patients. I position myself differently in discussions.
I don’t know that I can articulate the value of my coaching in the manner it deserves such as the credence I attach to it. The ability for me to be challenged on my thinking and long held management styles/personality traits in such a way that it didn’t feel like a personal ‘attack’ and put me on the defensive was extremely beneficial.
