Event description


Are you a Health Professional avoiding difficult conversations?
Frustrated by patients who seem stuck?

Demotivated team? Same problems keep coming up?
Rolling your eyes every time you're told to be more resilient?

Relying on a consultation style that you moulded many years ago?

Come and be energised- discover the transformative tools that could help flip these problems on their heads.
Imagine the impact of a more empowering style.

The "RD1st Health Coaching Programme" is a two-day, intensive course specially designed for Health Care Professionals.

This dynamic programme covers both Coaching & other Contemporary Communication skills to bring you a fresh approach to the every-day complexities you face at work.

Perhaps you've heard your colleagues talk about coaching or even had some introductory training yourself?

Coaching provokes & guides problem-solving in a way that facilitates others to come up with their own solutions. We help build the problem-solving muscle of those we engage with, rather than carrying the constant pressure of providing all the solutions.

By bringing a coaching approach, we help our patients find their own, most-ideal ways forward. In the clinical setting, this builds patient engagement, increases health confidence and reduces service-dependency.

A coaching approach can also transform how we perform as Educators & Team Leaders. By using coaching methods, we empower the people around us to find clarity & drive innovation, be they our patients, our trainees, or our team. These skills are especially useful for trainers, managers and those with an interest in Quality Improvement.

This highly interactive and practical course covers:

  • Core Coaching Principles

  • Coaching Techniques

  • Managing Difficult Conversations & Managing Conflict (NVC)

  • Building Trust

  • Cultivating our Emotional Intelligence

  • Creating Paradigm Shifts

  • Optimising Feedback

  • Coaching styles of Teamwork, Leadership & Organisational Culture.

We place a strong emphasis on how to apply these skills within a "10 minute consultation.”

We take a coaching approach to the training itself, ensuring the content is relevant and immediately applicable for each participant. Our aim is that you will leave with an firm understanding of coaching and its relevance to your work AND new skills and tools which you can apply immediately.

The course is accompanied by a manual.

The course has been developed, designed and co-delivered by RD1st coach and GP, Dr Bronya Gorney and RD1st coach and trainer Emma Haughton

What did participants of the Introductory Half Day workshop say in their feedback?

"Thoroughly enjoyable and incredibly useful"


"It was refreshing to learn a new skill that will be helpful in my career as a GP. We often a bombarded with “the same old” consultation skills workshops so it will be interesting to try something new!"

** 100% would recommend the Introductory workshop to a colleague **
