In an increasingly uncertain world, organisations are looking for more and more ways to harness their leadership potential. The competition for the very best talent is strong, so our organisational culture must support our people to bring their very best to work. Developing a coaching culture is an integral part of that cultural change programme. This session will explain Hall & Woodhouse’s journey over the last four years towards developing a coaching culture, focussing mainly on our internal coaching approach – where we started, what we learned, the challenges we faced, how we overcame them and our plans for the future. I hope that this session will give you some ‘real-world’ insight into the difference coaching can make in an organisation on a cultural development journey and perhaps share some thoughts that will help you to avoid the pitfalls.


Melissa Hague has spent her career in learning and development, joining Hall & Woodhouse Ltd over 5 years ago with a remit to transform their learning and development approach. With a passion for unlocking the potential in others to drive both individual and business success, coaching has become a transformational tool both personally and for Hall & Woodhouse. Melissa is a practicing internal coach and coach-supervisor and is currently studying for her MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change at Henley Business School in the UK.
