Coaching provides welcome support as third season of Better Business Skills launches

With over 200 people now supported on the popular skills programme, Better Business Skills, NBSL are launching season three with the benefit of coaching now added into the support package.

The fully funded Autumn programme, in partnership with the North of Tyne Combined Authority, provides tailored skills development plan for individuals and businesses that need guidance and support to re-invigorate their business skills now with additional coaching support to ensure skills learned can be implemented into their business with confidence.

Coaching – a valuable tool in any situation – can assist personal and professional development and help identify barriers to progress. When coaching is implemented effectively, it can support the delivery of significant improvement and change allowing individuals to take ownership of their own personal development – crucially helping to increase confidence and provide courage to move forward.

Season three of this innovative programme sees the development of sessions split into two – the first workshop focussing on specialist knowledge and specific skills with the second workshop providing a facilitated coaching session. Industry experts delivering both sessions will provide supportive advice on how to implement skills into individual situations and will play the role of a critical and supportive friend to ensure understanding. Learners in the programme will then have the confidence – and courage – to take charge of their own implementation of what has been learned on workshop one.

David Jackson, Skills Manager of NBSL said: “The new coaching sessions will help develop the knowledge, skills and much needed self-belief of learners to empower them to make positive changes in their business and we’re appealing to all small businesses – and employees – to invest time in updating their skills to help invigorate their life.”

“The synergy between our skills and enterprise initiatives now available at NBSL working alongside the North East Business Support Fund grant programme and the North of Tyne Innovation Recovery grant programme has allowed us to provide an integrated business support package at a crucial time that boosts courage and confidence through coaching” .
