Ep 027: That’s not coaching!

Welcome to episode 27 of My Pocket Psych, the podcast all about the psychology of the workplace!
This time round, Richard and Pilar look at clearing up some misconceptions about coaching. We differentiate it from mentoring and psychotherapy and consider what you might want to look for in a prospective coach.
We also chat about recent presentations Richard gave in Dublin and St. Andrews, plug is workshop at November’s CIPD Northern Ireland Conference. And of course, we discuss our challenge – using Apple’s Screentime functionality to see how we’re using our devices.
