Coaching from The Strategy Unit – Supporting system leaders to develop and navigate uncertainty
4th November 2019
It’s harder than ever to be a leader in health and care, moving through a rising storm of changes. The ask of STPs and their constituent organisations is evolving as experience of system working grows. Working in systems means dealing with complexity, so steering in one direction can lead to unpredictable results. Coaching is well-placed to deal with the ambiguities of the health and care system today. Coaching allows individuals to step out of the storm into a ‘safe space’, one which isn’t subject to the usual constraints of the day job. We have developed our coaching offer to set out the support we can provide at a high level. It also describes the ways in which we can apply a ‘coaching approach’ to increase the effectiveness of team development, training and programme workshops.
