Queen Bee Coaching

  1. Are you leading work you truly believe in? Do you want that work to have an even greater impact than it already does? Have you got an idea of where you want to go and you’re not quite sure how to get there? Or maybe none of this applies to you, but you know a woman who fits the bill. Queen Bee Coaching wants to help.

  2. We provide free coaching that enables women from diverse backgrounds to realise their full potential and rise to positions of influence. We believe this will ultimately redress the balance across Greater Manchester and close the gender pay gap.

  3. Put simply, coaching helps you get from where you are now to where you want to be faster than you could on your own. If you are used to putting others first, a coach will create the space and time for you to grow. Our clients are women already leading on inspiring work in Greater Manchester – projects both big and small. We just want to give them an extra boost. By joining Queen Bee Coaching as a client, you become part of an empowering network of women leaders in the city and will work with your coach to grow your confidence and impact.

  4. Our six free coaching sessions are open to women who have demonstrated leadership within Greater Manchester and who do not have financial or organisational support to access coaching.

  5. You can also join us as a volunteer coach or in one of the voluntary roles in our development team.

  6. In everything we do, we seek to ensure the service reflects the diversity, demographics and dynamism of Greater Manchester. Applications are welcomed from all of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester and we particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian, LGBTQ+, working class and disabled women.

What if I don’t feel like a leader?

At Queen Bee Coaching, we recognise that leaders come in many forms – and that sometimes women’s leadership styles do not conform with stereotypical expectations. For us, a leader is anyone working to turn ideas into action and create change in society.

A leader might be that person everyone turns to because they just get things done. Or they could be the person with the best and most empathetic listening ear in an organisation. Leaders can be radical, defying norms and expectations to act in the way they believe is right. They might be collaborative – ensuring everyone’s perspective is heard and creating ways for people to work together towards a common goal.

What we’re saying is for us, there is not one, set definition of a leader.

Please don’t feel that you have to have led a big team or have been in charge of ‘important’ projects to fulfil our definition. If you are working on something you believe in to create change in Greater Manchester – you are a leader to us.
