You need to gain your line manager’s approval to request coaching, and at times of high demand priority is given to coaching requests which support management or leadership development. MAC Net cannot provide coaching in cases where there are ongoing or imminent grievance or disciplinary issues related to the coaching need. There is no financial cost for coaching provided between MAC Net member organisations and we make every effort to identify an appropriate coaching match whose skills and experience seem to suit the development needs identified.
