COACH ME - Individual Board Member Confidence and Performance Building

We're offering specialist help to individual community Board members to build your confidence and understanding of governance - including processes, roles and responsibilities, or problem solving. 

What is it?

Boards are a vital part of community-led development. Whether you're a Board newbie, or longer in the tooth, a bit of focused expert advice and support could help you maximise benefits and minimise blunders.

Coach Me offers a tailored session, online or on the phone, with a specialist from our delivery partners Impact Hub Inverness. Sessions can be held flexibly, and you'll agree in advance what you want to cover. Topics might look like this:

  • If you're new, find out what your roles and responsibilities are.
  • Understand good governance practices and how they impact on an organisation's development.
  • Get a refresh on a specific aspect of governance - your constitution, policies, decision making etc.
  • Work through a specific challenge you are facing in relation to Board activity.

Who is eligible?

Our aim is to support individuals who are part of Boards of community organisations, charities, social enterprises, and voluntary organisations. 

Coach Me is designed to help you as an individual. The coaching will have a benefit to your Board activities, and we'll ask you to confirm it is aware and supportive of your application. If your full Board is keen as a group to be part of a development programme, please take a look at our Board Health Check.

How to apply

Please complete the Expression of Interest form available from the top right of this page. If your request for support is successful, a full application will be sent to you. We will also let you know if you have been unsuccessful and direct you towards other support that may be of help.
