Are you ready to catapult the skills and confidence of your new and aspiring NHS Managers?
The Manager’s Mentoring Programme
Where you can feel supported and happy in your role knowing you have the tools to do the job
Are you struggling with filling your Management roles because right now it all feels hard?
Are staff feeling stressed and overwhelmed and reporting they need more support?
Do some of your Managers avoid those difficult conversations because they don’t feel confident tackling them?
I might not have spoken to them, but I know they need this.
I’m Merrisha Gordon, and I have just the thing for you.
I am an Accredited Leadership Coach and Organisational Consultant with over 20 years’ experience of managing and leading NHS services. I started in the NHS aged 23, and by 30 was an Assistant Director. Whilst my career might have spring boarded quickly, it wasn’t without challenges, and so when I say I know what new Managers might need…I really do.
I have coached and mentored hundreds of people, and continue to work very closely with the NHS delivering coaching, mentoring and training. And what I know for sure is that it is a real challenge working in the NHS right now, but some of the issues are not new. Organisations across the country are struggling with recruitment and retention. Morale is at an all time low. And the staff are feeling burnt out and overwhelmed.
And new and aspiring Managers are finding it really tough.
I know they probably started this year confident things would be different, but you know they need abit of support getting there
And I know they really love their jobs, but want to feel more confident at work
And I know that you want to give your staff the support they need, but right now you just don’t have the capacity
On a weekly basis I am speaking to people like your staff. People who feel stuck. People I can help
Which is why, I have developed the ‘Manager’s Mentoring Programme’
Why this Works
Because with staff in mind, this programme has been designed to be as simple as possible, in plain English, with each module requiring no more than 30 minutes commitment
Because I have real knowledge and experience that I am sharing with others
Because I have tonnes of testimonials from people who have worked with me and gained so much from my expertise
Because I have included some really simple templates which staff can use and start adopting good working practices from the start
Over six modules staff will learn…
The psychology behind their behaviour preferences as a Manager
How to manage their time effectively
The importance of developing the right mindset
The fundamentals of recruitment and induction
How to set relationships for success with seniors, peers and staff
AND in addition will get…
4 weeks’ access to me via Voxer where staff can text, voicenote or send videos during working hours, posing their challenges and questions, with a response back from me within 24 hours
Lifetime access to the recordings which can be replayed to cement learning
The first 5 people signed up with have a full DISC assessment and feedback session to help them understand their strengths and blind spots in more detail
I was most impressed by her professionalism, her kind and compassionate approach, combined with her dedication for achieving the best outcomes for all. Most of all, what I appreciate about Merrisha is for being her, living authentically, always providing great insights, she is smart and a pleasure to be around. Thank you Merrisha.
