How to collaborate and soften the ways of working in an increasingly polarised and confrontational political environment

This workshop will provide coaching support for two UK local politicians. Similar to a peer-coaching session, the politicians will explain the challenges they are facing. You will be given a chance to ask questions in support of the issues the politicians are facing.

As fairly new politicians, Georgia Taylor and Christina Coleman are trying to change the way local politics is done, but often don’t understand or agree with the rules, and the prevailing culture. Christina will explain what happened when she was Chair of Wealden District Council. Georgia will speak about her experience of working with cross-party women councillors, to encourage an increase in feminine leadership in the council.

Outcome of workshop – the politicians and the coaches/mediators/facilitators in the session will have enhanced awareness of each other’s needs and skills to offer further collaboration not just in the UK but in other cultural and political contexts.

Questions might include: What mindset do local politicians currently have, where are the stumbling blocks? How can coaching approaches unblock some of the challenges faced by local government politicians to enable them to work better together across parties?
