Coaching skills workshops

Valuing difference through coaching and mentoring - these workshops are open to anyone with line management responsibility.

Coaching and mentoring workshops are part of our Membership Services commitment to police leaders in supporting the development of people from groups currently under-represented in policing and to create opportunities to influence policing culture to become more inclusive of difference.

A coaching and mentoring style of leadership influences cultures where people feel they can be more autonomous, use their skills and experiences to the full, and it helps breaks down barriers within hierarchies.

As police leaders if you adopt and practice a coaching and mentoring style, you will also develop your own listening skills, use a more open style of communication and be able to act as role models for future leaders. You may also want to take the opportunity to participate in reverse mentoring. This can give you a greater understanding of issues affecting under-represented groups and enables you to become an ally of those who are under-represented.

In turn, this will help create a positive culture where people can be themselves and contribute to creating a richness of diversity so it becomes the norm within policing.

This potential to change the future of leadership in policing is linked to recommendations in our Leadership Review.

Confidence in local policing, from all communities, is critical and an important factor for police legitimacy. People across all communities want the police to fight crime while having confidence that their needs will be understood and respected.

In conjunction with the Chartered Management Institute, we are able to offer delegates the opportunity to study for a Level 3 Award in Coaching and Mentoring as a follow-up to the one-day workshop.
