Are you an accredited NHS coach or mentor ready to develop your skills? The Ethical Mentoring programme will help you mentor colleagues grappling with challenging ethical dilemmas.
Ethical dilemmas occur when someone is conflicted about the right choice to make, and when two or more values compete for priority. These values may be personal, organisational, societal or any mixture of the three. When you combine this with the expectation of NHS leaders to tackle complex problems against a backdrop of a changeable and political system, making an ethical decision can be very challenging.
National programme lead for coaching & mentoring, Charmaine Kwame–Odogwu said: “This programme provides a moral context to help people evaluate business processes and resolve conflict between business and social imperatives. Ethical mentoring is about helping others make better decisions at work that affect the wellbeing of our staff and our patients. Through our skilled community of coaches and mentors, we aim to provide timely support to all colleagues in the system who are facing ethical dilemmas.”
This programme is for you if you are:
- An accredited mentor/coach working formally through regional coaching & mentoring registers
- NHS staff who regularly (on an informal basis) have experience working with colleagues within a coaching or mentoring capacity and can demonstrate a firm understanding of coaching/mentoring methods.
This programme is for you if you are a mentor wanting to help colleagues:
- Create an environment for an open dialogue
- Understand and work with ethical dilemmas
- Explore and question their own values, and those of the NHS constitution
- Recognise and challenge false logic
- Make difficult choices
- Have difficult conversations with other people
The programme starts with two days of training, which cover the theory and practice of ethical mentoring, with Professor David Clutterbuck and Professor Celia Moore. These take place on:
- 9 and 10 February 2017 (London)
- 15 and 16 February 2017 (Leeds)
- 14 and 15 March 2017 (Manchester)
You will also receive:
- Ongoing access to supervision and CPD to enhance your practice and continue your learning journey in ethical mentoring
- Membership to a virtual learning campus where you can share, learn and collaborate with other mentors, access the latest resources and connect with subject matter experts
