Coaching is a brilliant tool to drive personal growth, utilising the power of accountability in an empowering achievable way.
A 2018 study by HR group DPG found that 9/10 mothers faced problems returning to work after maternity leave; common challenges included:
Unable to balance work and home life
Loss of confidence in work capabilities
Navigating new identity and life shifts
Mental load of ‘always being switched on’ at work and at home
This leads to:
Women leaving the workplace/current role
Not putting themselves forward for senior roles
Reaching burnout and overwhelm
Coaching can navigate the challenges head on
Themes can include:
The practicalities of returning to work including setting and communicating new boundaries
Developing self-belief and confidence, and harnessing strengths
Managing feelings of anxiety and guilt post maternity leave
Balancing different identities and roles at work and at home.
Maximising effectiveness and performance once back at work
Rebuilding & reconnecting in the workplace
Optimising wellbeing by reducing stress & preventing burn out
Can be created bespoke for your organisation.
