To assist with the transition to a demanding, high-profile role, AHUA members who are newly appointed Registrars / COOs / University Secretaries have the opportunity to take up a series of four executive coaching sessions during the first year of their appointment. As an investment in our new members, the sessions are fully funded by the Association.
Coaching presents an invaluable opportunity to explore work issues and develop awareness of those skills and behaviours which you may wish to progress further. It also offers appropriate targeted support to help you effectively manage the transition to your new role.
We would strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity which is made available within the first 12 months of your appointment.
The article below by Tess Brooks gives further information about what coaching is and the difference between coaching and mentoring.
The Scope of Working Arrangements document below outlines what is expected of both coach and coachee from the AHUA offer.
