Code: BH/19/0783 Key Coaching Skills for Managers

The skill of coaching is a key area for managers.  If you haven’t had any experience of coaching, this development is essential. 

It's not enough to tell people what you want them to do and expect they'll do it, you need to be able to understand what it takes to get the best out of each individual. One size doesn't fit all. This is true whether you are a manager or someone working alongside peers - you will probably have to use coaching skills as part of your everyday communication.

Key Coaching Skills begins to develop your skills, knowledge and insight, which you can use immediately for personal and team effectiveness.  The half-day session uses a combination of input, activities, group work and individual reflection; building your confidence, skills and helping  you to identify the next steps for your own development.

 

Benefits to you, as a manager:

·         Following up when someone hasn't done what you've asked

·         Working with a colleague who may be at odds with your approach

·         Handling conflict between colleagues

·         Ensuring goals are met

·         Helping and supporting when someone is struggling or having a difficult time

Code: BH/19/0021 Smoking Cessation (for Pharmacy and GP staff only) - PLEASE READ COURSE DETAILS BEFORE BOOKING A PLACE

This course is restricted for Pharmacy and GP staff only. Please DO NOT attend if you work for any other service. When you book a place on this course, please state which Pharmacy/GP surgery you are from - thank you.

All smokers in the country deserve high quality evidence-based behavioural support. For this to be achieved, Stop Smoking Advisors need to be trained to a minimum standard and be able to demonstrate competence to fulfill their role.

Therefore training courses should cover relevant topics, as indicated by a set of learning outcomes. The attached document lists a set of learning outcomes that have been agreed as essential for individual and group face-to-face smoking cessation interventions. In some cases, they are based on the need for Stop Smoking Advisors to be able to accurately answer queries from clients on matters relating to smoking and smoking cessation. In other cases they are required for safe professional practice and in some cases they are based on a systematic analysis of behaviour change techniques that have a reasonable evidence base to support their use.
