HSE seeks external management coaching service

By Paul Mulholland - 24th Jan 2022 | 157 views

The HSE is looking to put in place a “framework-type agreement” for an external coaching service for
senior management. The tender is divided into two separate lots, the first of which relates to the coaching of executive management. The second lot pertains to the coaching of senior management and other staff. The aim is to have a panel of 20 coaches for each lot, from which staff who have budgetary provision to avail of the service can select their own coach.

The tender document states that individual coaching aims to support development and change; sustain changes that are discussed in the coaching sessions; and increase confidence to manage and enhance their role. With regards to team coaching, the document says the benefits include improving communication, increasing employee engagement and strengthening morale.

The external suppliers are intended to provide additional support to the HSE’s own national coaching service.
“A key objective of coaching in the HSE is to develop high performing individuals across the organisation,” according to the tender. “Coaching will support individuals to overcome challenges which they face in their job. It will also support learning and development opportunities within the organisation.”

The tender notes the HSE has a limited budget available for this project.
