Transition Coaching

The East Midlands Coaching Network is holding a CPD session for Coaches on 18 March 2020, on transition coaching. 

Transitioning into a new role can be both exciting and daunting. 

Expectations of others can be high, especially if it’s a promotion. A focus on being able to ‘hit the ground running’ can mean an over reliance on the strengths that have worked to date and not enough attention paid to identifying and developing the skills, knowledge and capabilities needed in the new role. Over time this can become detrimental to performance. In this session we will focus on how, as coaches, we can support our coachees to successfully transition into more senior roles with confidence.

The Facilitator - Suzanne Ross

Through her consultancy 2thrive, she specialises in helping individuals and teams build and sustain success with an emphasis on leadership behaviours, emotional intelligence and change resilience. Suzanne is completing her Doctoral research in Executive Talent, Success and Derailment.

Through 2thrive, she also runs a unique Women Trailblazers programme, for talented women defining success for themselves. Suzanne is a part-time Senior Lecturer at Nottingham Business School, a facilitator, presenter and has contributed to articles in the national press on career management, derailment and talent.
