Internal Coaches and Mentors


Internal Coaches and Mentors are well placed to act as powerful agents for change.  With good sponsorship, and keen attention to boundary management, they can offer a unique and bespoke learning partnership to colleagues.  This TAG explores the potential for Internal Coaches and Mentors to promote employee engagement from within, using the four enablers of employee engagement – for example:

strategic narrative

Helping managers inducting new staff, to ensure understanding of the organisations’ purpose and culture – at that critical ’embedding into a new culture’ point.

engaging managers

Supporting increased self-awareness and self-management of engaging managerial and leadership behaviours.

employee voice

Encouraging people to work out what they really want to say and how to ask constructively.

organisational integrity

Identifying themes and issues, when working at scale and within ethical boundaries.


  • Meet regularly to offer facilitated peer support, challenge and insights
  • Explore opportunities for promoting employee engagement through the four enablers
  • Gather insights to share with the wider movement

The purpose of the Internal Coaches and Mentors TAG is to provide a safe and reflective space for people who work as internal coaches or mentors, to explore and share ideas for promoting employee engagement.

This is a challenging role and a growing area of expertise. The group is facilitated by Katherine Bassey, an experienced, accredited executive coach, coaching supervisor and Time to Think practitioner, offering a safe space to share reflective thinking, explore potential, enhance current practice and offer ideas to others beyond the group.
