WMP is committed to nurturing and supporting a healthy, capable and engaged workforce to have the skills and behaviors to prevent crime, protect the public and help those in need. West Midlands Police has established a coaching and mentoring pool, Coach 2 Grow, to improve organizational and personal performance. Coach 2 Grow aims to develop our people through coaching and mentoring to build their resilience, improve performance and unlock potential. Coaching & mentoring is available to all, however, to ensure maximum benefits the target audience for their coaching and mentoring is, but not exclusively, for individuals
Coach 2 Grow aims to provide access to high quality and effective coaching and mentoring to all in West Midlands Police. To do this we have joined the WM Employers Coaching & Mentoring pool which will allow access to external coaches and mentors from over 25 public sector organisations. In addition we have our internal provision with a wide range of coaches and mentors from across WMP. Individuals can choose a coach or mentor from within West Midlands Police or an external one depending whether the achievement of their learning outcomes would best supported by having a coach or mentor with an understanding of our organisation or if an external perspective would be helpful. An associate pool for coaching and mentoring for Chief Officers and Directors is available which can be accessed by emailing one of the Learning & Delivery Managers within the Development and Performance Team within POD.
