Powys Coaching Network

What is Coaching?

Powys County Council currently have approximately 20 internal and associate coaches who act as a sounding board to enable individuals to achieve their goals and overcome personal barriers.  All these coaches are qualified and operate within "Powys Coaching Network".

A coach can help people become more effective in their roles, achieving promotions, being better leaders or achieving career goals.

A coach is not necessarily someone from your department and may not have any understating of your area of work.  They are, however, experts in asking the right questions to enable you to discover for yourself what steps you need to take to achieve success.

Frequency and length of coaching sessions is mutually agreed between the coach and coachee in the first meeting.  The sessions are confidential.  You will discuss areas that you would wish to develop and identify what is stopping you doing this.  The coaches are trained to be challenging and will help you set deadlines for you to meet.

Developing a coaching culture has been endorsed at the highest levels within the authority, with the Senior Management Team actively promoting coaching as a development tool.
