The CAKE Coaching Awards are part of the East of England Coaching and Mentoring Conference – The Coaching Conversation, which for the last four years has been supporting those involved in workplace coaching.
This year, in addition to the Coaching Champion Award, we are thrilled to introduce a new category, ‘The Best Coaching and Mentoring Initiative’Award.
The finale of the awards will take place at The Coaching Conversation 2018, held on Thursday 29th November at Newmarket Racecourse, where the winners will be announced. (tickets for the conference go on sale end of July)
We welcome nominations for any coaching or mentoring initiative created by the nominated organisation. It can include coaches from outside the business, but it must have been developed internally.
We are interested in seeing the use of any methodology or coaching models and evidence of the impact that the initiative has made to the success of the organisation.
CAKE welcomes submissions from organisations that use mentoring to support the development of their employees whether it is a formal or informal process.
Mentoring is often referred to in a similar vein to coaching although it is vastly different, it is an extremely effective development tool, and we want to recognise and reward the best programmes and initiatives being run.
Our judging panel is looking for initiatives that demonstrate:
A thorough understanding of the business and its strategic objectives
An understanding of coaching and mentoring best practice
An understanding of learning and development
How the aims of the initiative were met
A long-term sustainable future
Evidence of measured success
Entries are open NOW and close on Friday 28th September. For more information about The Coaching Conversation or the awards, head over to www.cakepd.co.uk/the-coaching-awards
