In an innovative scheme developed by David Hall, MBA Director, and Damion Wonfor, Director of The Performance Coach, PBS MBA students are being offered executive coaching free of charge.
With a number of experienced managers requiring coaching practice to complete their coaching awards, the opportunity was spotted by David and Damion. "This was an opportunity for both PBS and TPC based on the needs of our students and TPC's clients. This innovative collaboration delivers genuine added-value to all stakeholders," David said.
The scheme was launched as a pilot in The New Year and will be reviewed in July. This pro-bono MBA coaching scheme is a first of its kind and helps to differentiate the Portsmouth MBA from the competition in a tough market.
Meanwhile other opportunities are being considered to extend this arrangement to other PBS students and staff. This is a good example of a collaboration that builds on the synergies of the partners to create innovative solutions and opportunities.
