Karen Smith was coached by CfLP as part of a bespoke leadership development programme.
How did you find the coaching experience?
Very useful in developing personally as a manager and leader. I have never been in a leadership position before so the advice and discussions we had were invaluable.
What skills did you gain from coaching?
Understanding of how to lead, coach and manage a team. A perspective on people and what different approaches could be used for them.
What impact has coaching had on you?
Helped me to feel more confident as a manager and leader.
Would you recommend coaching to others?
100% even if you are an experienced manager it could be that coaching develops other skills to better manage and lead people.
