Coaching to help you become the best leader you can be

coaching quote from Elizabeth McPherson Carers Plus Yorkshire

Our Leadership Coaching is for leaders experiencing change or challenges in their organisation.

Coaching provides a safe, non-judgemental, thinking space in which to work on challenges or opportunities in a focused way with the support of an experienced professional.

Leadership Coaching is a one-to-one process that effectively guides you towards increasing your resilience, efficiency and performance.

The Institute of Coaching cites that over 70% of individuals who receive coaching benefited from improved work performance, relationships and more effective communication skills.

Qualified and experienced coaches

All of our qualified coaches are from Coaching York and are experienced in working with voluntary sector leaders in our region. We will match your personal and professional development needs to a coach with the relevant background and expertise.

Each Leadership Coaching package includes:

  • An initial online meeting to discuss your goals for coaching.
  • 4 online coaching sessions lasting 90 minutes each. The time between sessions will be agreed upon between you and your coach but must be completed within six months.
  • Support between sessions via email or telephone.
  • Resources and recommended reading to support the coaching process.
  • An evaluation will be used to review how you’re progressing towards your coaching goal.

  • Leaders in organisations with significant concerns around financial sustainability and resilience.
  • Leaders from registered charities not in receipt of other capacity-building funding.
  • Leaders in organisations who would be unable to pay for the Leadership Coaching offer.
