Mac Voice, the magazine for Macmillan professionals: Autumn 2014
Professional coaching is just one of the ways we are working with Macmillan Professionals to support them in their roles
Pilots showed coaching to be particularly effective for participants who needed support with navigating change, stress and workload management, improving work and home-life balance, strategic thinking, influencing skills and conflict management.
Crucially, participants on the pilot programme felt that, as their organisational, communication and confidence levels improved, they became able to offer more focused, accessible and supportive services for people affected by cancer. Some service improvement examples included setting up new clinics and greater involvement in teaching or training other staff.
Coaching is open to all Macmillan professionals at all levels, provided you’ve been in post for a minimum of six months. We’ve developed an experienced network of professionally trained and accredited external coaches to provide this service across the UK.
