Coaching York

CY Logo

A community of coaches serving the community


Coaching York promotes a range and depth of educational and development opportunities for coaches and coaches-in-training, across the city.

We also run conferences and workshops for anyone with an interest in the difference that coaching can make to their organisations, together with more informal networking for members.

As a community of coaches, we encourage members to suggest and facilitate wider professional development – from regular events to one-off discussions. We also facilitate regular networking evenings, enabling coaches to get to know each other and to foster collaboration.

Every May, Coaching York celebrates International Coaching Week both as an opportunity to enhance coaching skills and reflect on practice, as well as highlighting what we do across the city.

“There is a richness of education and professional development for coaches here in York. Through our events diary, we make it visible at a glance.  We also encourage more coaches to lead events or join the education group”

 Supervision is a powerful enabler of coach development and growth, supporting us to work with protection, permission and potency, inviting coaches and clients to thrive in their work and life.

Supervision provides deep learning opportunities, increasing consciousness of coach successes strengths and achievements.  It brings into awareness any blind spots or limiting beliefs.  It enables us to have a safe space to examine our work, meet challenges and create more options, being at our best for our clients.

York Coaching Group – Coaching for Inclusion @ York St John University
Jul 12 @ 6:30 pm – 8:45 pm

Coaching for Inclusion is the title of our July event facilitated by Joanne Rule.

Inclusion/exclusion are important challenges for every sector. This session argues that it is not possible to deliver a wider inclusion/diversity agenda without learning to work in different ways ourselves. Filmed multidisciplinary meetings of health professionals, shows how consultants catch each other’s eyes only and how hard it is for nurses to join the discussion.

Similar processes happen in most organisations and all of us can draw upon our own experiences of feeling excluded. Leaders often exclude unconsciously – as do teams of people at work – coaching helps people to become aware of this and to learn how to hold inclusive meetings and conversations.

Joanne will draw on her experience of shaping an inclusion programme for Macmillan Cancer Support and subsequently integrating inclusive leadership as a core approach in her own leadership coaching. She will share some simple approaches and tools for inclusion.

Joanne Rule describes herself as a leadership coach with a passion for growing new leaders. She a former chief executive with a specialist background in communications/public affairs. Having gained her ILM Level 7 qualification in coaching, Joanne has worked full time as a coach and coach-consultant since 2008, when the charity she led, Cancerbackup, merged with Macmillan Cancer Support.

Joanne was then asked to co-chair the national cancer equality initiative, winner of a civil service diversity and equality award in 2010. In this role, Joanne worked with Macmillan and the wider cancer community on inclusion and values-based change. She is an active member of Coaching York
