1-1 coaching approach

Returner coaching addresses the practical and psychological challenges faced by professionals re-entering the workforce after a period of parental leave. Common themes include rebuilding confidence, managing change and uncertainty, personal effectiveness and wellbeing. 

How it works :

  • Your employee will be able to choose their preferred coach from a shortlist of parental transition coaches. 
     
  • Sessions will be held virtually or in person (may incur additional costs)
     
  • Returners normally have 3- 6 sessions ideally starting before their parental leave commences.

 

How returner coaching helps your employees:

Group Coaching Approach

Run as cohorts or drop in sessions of up to 12 employees to support the 3 stages of parental leave.

  • Preparing for leave

  • Empowered returns

  • Future focus 

Perfect for larger organisations or those looking to build safe collaborative spaces for their valuable talent to problem solve and share experiences.
