Women in Wholesale (WiW) has begun a coaching academy which aims to help ‘high potential’ individuals through six free coaching sessions from fully accredited trainers.
The WiW Coaching programme offers a series of one-to-one conversations with an experienced coach focused on enhancing skills and what can be achieved at work. The process will help to assess strengths, as well as areas to develop.
The support is fully funded and exclusive to WiW with limited places available. Successful applicants will be selected based on the strengths of the objectives outlined in their entry.
WiW Chairperson, Clare Bocking, said, “We want to supercharge confidence and skills levels at a time when the pandemic has regressed gender equality (McKinsey). The potential challenges to our sector are not going away, they are just changing, and we want to help by offering the ultimate form of support in the form of executive coaching.”
The two WiW coaches are:
Sadie Visick is an AoEC Accredited Associate Executive Coach, a member of the International Coaching Federation and a Certified Fierce Conversations Facilitator. Sadie has a particular interest in promoting gender equality and enabling women to progress to senior roles, and established AQA’s Empowering Women programme in 2015.
Ayman Nasreldin. With 22 years of corporate experience, Ayman has held many commercial leadership roles. He is an inclusive leadership consultant, board level facilitator, and an EMCC accredited coach, with a passion for working with leaders and high potential individuals helping them unlock potential, identify purpose, and perform at their best.
The support is open to all women working in UK grocery and foodservice wholesale and applications can be made here with a deadline for entries of June 30th. 2022.
