Achieving Your Potential: development programme for staff with a disability

21 Jan 2015

Booking is now open for this programme (three one-day workshops accompanied by two one-to-one development coaching sessions) running between March and September 2015

Achieving Your Potential is a six-day development programme for members of University staff, at all levels, with a disability.

The aim of the course is to enable disabled colleagues to take more control over their personal and professional lives; to develop resilience to thrive at work; to set and achieve personal goals; and develop as positive role models for others

During the programme, participants will:

  • Value and share their own experience and explore their identity
  • Develop self-esteem, self-confidence, enhanced personal styles and ability to relate to others
  • Set personal goals and gain benefit from one to one coaching
  • Develop assertive communication, active listening and project themselves
  • Work effectively with others: using negotiation methods and handling expectations

The programme consists of three one-day workshops accompanied by one-to-one development coaching for each participant.

Those applying to attend the programme should be able to commit to attendance on each of the days required. Please note on the coaching day participants will attend for a one hour session at a time to be finalised once they have been accepted onto to the programme.

The programme will be facilitated by ResultCIC who are a specialist Coaching and Development Consultancy with considerable experience in working with disabled and other groups to bring about long lasting positive change and personal growth.

Those wishing to apply should discuss the programme with their line manager and agree their attendance and time out of the workplace.
