Stick to the basics

I like to give air time to people writing under the banner "Finding True North." Here's some good advice from Robert Goshen about sticking to the basics, remembering relationships, and staying humourous!

Train to Gain funds coaching training

When I started Finding True North I was looking forward to developing leaders in business through my own coaching, but I had not seen training others in coaching as a particular goal.

Having been asked by Wiltshire Wildlife Trust to train their ten top managers over three months, I find that this is going well and is enjoyable for me as well as them. Since I am a real advocate of coaching as an approach, or an attitude even, this is a natural way to encourage greater use of coaching. WWT see it as a way for managers to encourage each other and their staff to take more initiative and help the organisation to develop its entrepreneurial culture.

I am pleased at the continuing availability of funds from the Leadership and Management Advisory Service of Train to Gain to develop leaders. This is helping our clients to invest in training - whether that training is coaching for their directors and other leaders or training in coaching. Up to £1000 is available to each organisation.
