HR Management events at Glasgow Caledonian University

Under the over-arching theme of ‘Maximising the Contribution of HR in Difficult Times’, several free CPD events are planned for the coming months. Presented by HRM academics in the Department of Management in Caledonian Business School, the CPD events and are designed to offer practitioners key insights into contemporary HR practices and how they can be utilised in a turbulent operating  environment. 

The next event is “Growing your own: has the time ever been better for internal coaching?” on 25th November.

Coaching is increasingly recognised as an essential and critically important role that most managers need to develop and perform as an integral part of their everyday management practice (Hunt and Weintraub, 2002). This session aims to inform delegates about the contribution a coaching culture and practices can make to their organisation in terms of developing both the coach and the coachee. Analysis of this will go beyond basic employee development to consider the contribution of coaching to managing performance to meet organisational goals and strategies. The session will combine literary input with practical analysis, inviting delegates to participate via discussions and facilitated short exercises around organisational climate and culture for introducing and enhancing coaching.
