I routinely measure the impact of my public health and medical leadership and career coaching practice as part of my audit and quality improvement processes.
I collect anonymised before and after data from my clients using the 7-item Short Warwick Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (SWEMWBS).
I also collect other data in my evaluation form in order to audit my coaching practice.
To ensure my clients are moving forwards to their satisfaction, I also review progress with each client during every session: this also helps with their reflective processes and is in line with GMC requirements for CPD.
Coaching with Fiona Day is statistically proven to increase wellbeing
These results are based on 34 consecutive evaluations completed by senior doctors, medical and public health leaders following an average of 5.4 coaching sessions during 2018-20. They are based on the internationally recognised Short Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing Scale (SWEMWBS) to measure the change in wellbeing.
It is particularly interesting that while improving wellbeing is not always an explicit objective of coaching that it is a consistent outcome.
