As part of your membership you can tap into a wealth of experience by booking a virtual coaching session with one of our expert consultants.
These hour-long sessions which are free to members, give you a chance to ask any questions you may have around this month’s theme or indeed anything that matters to you as you help your organisation to build cultural change and enable your people to bring their authentic selves to work.
We recommend that every member takes part in one virtual coaching session during the course of their membership year.
We have structured the days around six time-slots, however we may be able to adjust that according to your availability that day. Once you have booked your slot our Membership Manager will be in touch to set things up for you.
Don’t forget we conduct these by telephone, Skype or Zoom – whatever works best for you.
So why book a session?
Our experience tells us that everyone involved in running a network – irrespective of what role they have – needs to take stock now and then and to have a sounding board to check out that their direction of travel is the right one.
We know that can be hard to support the delivery of a network / resource group, on top of a busy job, but we also hear from our hundreds of members that your role in helping your organisation to create cultural change can be one of the most rewarding aspects of your working life.
Put simply, you are creating a better working world for your people.
These coaching sessions are a vital part of the PurpleSpace membership service. While we offer lots of know-how and resources as part of your membership package you sometimes just need to chat things through with a friendly expert who can help you with a problem, or a project, or simply be a sounding board while you test some ideas.
Our virtual coaching and one-to-one support sessions are perfect if you:
- have some ideas that spring to mind regarding this month’s topic
- want some dedicated time to think through a problem you may be struggling with
- have a “brilliant idea” about something completely different that you want to test out on an independent ear
- are worried that you haven’t yet made a contribution to your network and want to chat things through
- need some motivation and stimulation to get some va va voom back
This month our virtual coaching and one-to-one support day is being conducted by Sally Ward. In a 15 year career as an Inclusion Specialist at BT Sally led some ground-breaking projects which had a significant impact for disabled employees. For example, Sally invented the Disability Passport that many disability networks and organisations are now familiar with. Sally's proudest achievement was being the lead for all seven of BT's People Networks.
The one-hour slots available are: 07:00 / 10:00 / 12:00 / 14:00 / 16:00 / 19:00.
Please note you must book the slot in advance and they cannot be transferred to another day. You will need to do a little preparation in advance and we have some simple questions to answer beforehand which will be sent to you once you have booked your session.
These sessions are free to members, but non-members can also take advantage of them at a cost of £200 plus VAT.
