SISB1 - Introducing the confidence and leadership road-show: exploring goal setting and enhancing researcher confidence through Peer-led Crowd Coaching (PCC)
Davina Whitnall, GTP Manager, University of Manchester
The aim of PCC is to provide the benefits of one-to-one coaching in a large group setting whilst enabling participants to feel part of a wider community.
There are 3 principles to PCC:
- A large group is required
- Coaching techniques are used
- Actions are set
Participants explore the concept through a practical session using PCC to improve confidence. Research behind the techniques and complementary approaches such as a ‘Confidence Needs Analysis (CNA)’ and ‘Confidence Shape Framework (CSF)’ is presented. The dynamics of crowd coaching are explored in detail and case studies illustrated to help put this in context. There is particular focus on confidence and leadership and a show-case of the Confidence and Leadership Road-show; which is specifically aimed at increasing early career researcher and early career fellows confidence and leadership capability.
The aim of the session is to explore Peer-led Crowd Coaching and identify the benefits of one-to-one coaching in a large group setting whilst enabling participants to feel part of a wider community.
- Leadership development of early career researchers including researchers’ as leaders in different disciplines
- Researcher development within structured doctoral programmes, including perspectives on doctoral training centres/ partnerships, Innovative Training Networks (ITNs) and other cohort based models; including European and international collaborations and organisational benefits and challenges in managing diverse researchers’ experiences
- Research into researcher development
