If you have talented women going on maternity leave, offering maternity coaching can help you increase your retention rates.
Returning to work as a working parent can be a complex and difficult transition to manage. Many women feel anxious on their return to work for a range of different reasons, and coaching helps to build their confidence, to think about how to re-engage with their career and their role and how to manage their different responsibilities.
Maternity coaching offers independent, confidential developmental support, helping women reflect on, and consider all aspects of their successful transition back to work. We help women plan and prepare for their maternity leave covering topics such as handing over work, communication whilst on leave and possible working hours on their return. The overall aim is to help and support mothers to have a smooth and successful transition back to work.
We offer a range of flexible coaching programmes for talented women spread across pre, during and post maternity based on the structure outlined below:
Maternity coaching programme
A programme of six coaching sessions which starts with a session prior to going on maternity leave, one session prior to their return to work and then a further three sessions during the first six months back at work. There is also the option to add further sessions after the initial six months.
Each session typically lasts for 90 minutes.
All sessions are confidential and usually face-to-face, They can take place in your office or an alternative location of your choice. Skype or telephone coaching is also possible.
