Jackie Arnold initially came to Regent’s University London via the Leadership Foundation to run a Coaching Skills for Line Managers short workshop. At this workshop, as well as the line managers developing coaching skills for working with their own teams, it became obvious that embedding a coaching culture would assist us with leadership and organisational development. We have therefore been working with Jackie over the last 9 months to put in place the Regent’s SPIRIT Leadership Coaching Programme. SPIRIT, which stands for Self Directed, Purposeful, Inspirational, Reflective, Innovative and Transformational, reflects a programme in which our leaders put themselves forward for coaching as part of self-identified development. They are coached by one of 7 internal coaches who Jackie is supporting through the ILM Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring. I would highly recommend Jackie for her training and also for the support that she has given to us in the implementation of programme. Jackie’s approach is to fully support the programme and therefore has been available for advice and guidance even when not at the university. Jackie’s guidance in implementation of the programme have been invaluable and currently includes discussion regarding how we will implement supervision to support our programme once the training is complete. Jackie is both knowledgeable and experienced as a coach and I would highly recommend Jackie for both one off short workshops and also for implementation of coaching programmes.
