Give Me Strength

Updated: Nov 6, 2020

Summer is here and it’s a great time for getting out in the fresh air, exercising and soothing away some of the stresses and strains that come with work. It’s been a tumultuous few months for us all and, whilst it’s an ever evolving landscape, we’ve adapted and new patterns of working have been established.

This is a good time to think about what will be needed from a personal perspective in the next 12 months. Where are the gaps? Are there gaps in knowledge, skills, capacity or something else? As new habits are formed there is an opportunity to build in continuing professional development (CPD) and, if that happened, what would it give you? What would you like to happen? If you pause for a moment and attempt to answer these questions then you are adopting a coaching approach which can provide valuable insight.

John Trantom from the Leadership and Development Foundation (LDF) has been invited by the national Staff Development Forum (SDF) to lead a Twitter conversation on Monday 6th July from 4-5pm. John is Programme Leader for ILM Programmes on Coaching & Mentoring and Supervision for Coaches at LJMU and his thought-provoking topic is ‘Give Me Strength: Supervision In Exceptional Circumstances’. Everyone is invited to participate using hash tag #CoachingHE #SDFcoaching. You don't need to sign up only to attend the event virtually and guidance is available here.

The LDF has adapted to run online development sessions for the rest of 2020. We hope that you will join us not just for our established offering but also our new Action Learning Sets and bite-size express CPD sessions, which include Time Management, Influencing, Resilience and Problem Solving. We will shortly be introducing an exciting and comprehensive Future Ways of Working online toolkit that explores the topics of remote working, wellbeing for all, managing remote teams, leading in uncertain times and returning to the workplace. LJMU staff should keep an eye on the Staff Development Calendar for dates and further information.
