Facilitating positive conversations - online training

For managers / leaders - facilitating proactive and positive conversations

Working with the University of Wolverhampton, we are delivering an online training series for NHS finance colleagues in management / leadership roles to equip them with enhanced coaching skills, tools and techniques to better develop a proactive, supportive relationship with their teams who are working from home, and an opportunity to share and reflect on their practice for further support

Within the context of Covid-19, the switch to digital communication and delivery has become imperative. However, in the hurry to switch with limited practical and emotional support given and an expectation that people will quickly and positively adapt, this has had a huge and ongoing impact on the working lives, interpersonal relationships and the ability to cope for those working from home.

The training will be delivered during a 1-hour webinar on Tuesday 26th January from 10:00 – 11:00 on MS Teams, with a follow-up session delivered in smaller working groups in February 2021.

Content covered will include:

  • Creating team awareness: understanding the real interpersonal issues that teams might be facing working at home/on-line and their affects
  • Empathising: creating and developing positive relationships
  • Internal motivation: building a ‘strength-based’ view/supporting to see the options/opportunities available/developing confidence
  • Challenging towards building positive routines: building resilience
  • Developing opportunities to share/build social bonds/connections moving forward

Facilitated by Dr Jenni Jones, Associate Professor in Coaching and Mentoring at University of Wolverhampton.
