A few things we’re great at
We pride ourselve in ensuring our participants get the most from our training and coaching. Here are just a few of the services we can provide.
CPD Standards Office Accredited Coaching
We know what it is like to be a researcher. That’s why we provide specialist coaching to researchers. We recognise that for you success might mean managing people, budgets, experiments, teaching loads, students, even your boss. If you need to submit a grant application, wrap up an international collaborative project or just want to get time to write that journal article Researcher Coaching is for you.
We are MBTI, Belbin and DISC accredited practitioners. If you would like to understand more about what makes you tick and how you can work more effectively with others we can support you. We have run our ‘Different not Wrong’ workshops since 2008 and in 2017 added DISC coaching to our portfolio of instruments to support better understanding in the workplace and in life more generally.
Coaching is amazing! It was what needed. I loved the speed of thought Katy has and the to-the-point questions she asked.
The combination of Katy’s style and my readiness worked together for a powerful and productive first experience.
I have learned that when I plan properly I am quite productive. I have learned how to coach myself, and find motivation tricks.
My confidence increased which has affected various aspects of my life; I had not expected this experience to be so powerful!

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our coachees say:
I felt that we achieved a great deal in each session because
Katy structured them effectively (and flexed when needed). Katy was able to
identify the key points and communicate them in a way I could easily understand
but also gave me plenty of opportunities to agree or challenge these so we
achieved my Holy Grail of clarity.

By the end of my programme of coaching I now know how to organise myself and my research. I know my weaknesses so can avoid/deal with them. I know this is a long journey and even if I have a bad week/month with regards to research it doesn’t matter and I am achieving a lot.

As a result of this coaching
I have negociated a 3 month paid sabbatical enabling completion (in first draft) of my thesis. I have recognised my own personal resilience and that I am ready to move on with next stage of my career.

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our participants say:

Finding Space to Write
“Well delivered and engaging”
“I found the workshop really well-structured and full of great advice and hints”
“I think the workshop was excellent and I really enjoyed it”
“Your workshops are the best I have attended and that the uni has organised. I like that you keep coming back to what has been said in the previous workshops so that there is a sense of continuity. Also, it emphasises that all the aspects are part of communication and should be seen as a whole and not separate.”
