PERSONALISED TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING
The goal of transformational coaching is to enhance self-awareness, connection and leadership effectiveness. In the context of the Everyday Respect task force, this programme offers individualised support to our Global Investigation and BCO professionals who are actively supporting the organisation’s exploration of incidents of harassment, bullying and abuse.
This bespoke session or sessions offer you an opportunity to work one-on-one with Mobius Executive Leadership’s transformational coaches, who operate at the cutting edge of leadership development. They have expertise in psychological and relational training and experience working with business leaders and HR professionals.
We are pleased to offer you an initial 90 minute personalised transformational coaching session, with the option to continue these sessions on an ongoing basis should you wish. These sessions will be entirely confidential and personalised to your needs, with the specific focus of the session designated by you and your coach in partnership.
This coaching conversation can help to amplify breakthroughs and crystallise lessons learned as part of your professional role.
The purpose of this support is to help people understand how the types of issues that you face at work integrate with your whole self. Some of these issues can be traumatic and this support will help you to understand and better manage the impact.
We recognise that participating in a session involves deep personal work in which difficult or distressing stories, emotions or memories may surface and you can communicate to the Mobius facilitator if you desire to slow down the exploration or feel the need to end the discussion.
ABOUT THE EVERYDAY RESPECT TASK FORCE
We want Rio Tinto to be safe, respectful, and inclusive. Every day. For everyone.
Discrimination in any form has no place in our workplace. Sadly, some of our people at our sites and in our offices have experienced sexual harassment, bullying and racism. This is not acceptable, and we need to change. We seek to prevent harm coming to any of our people, and where we have failed to prevent harm, we will support healing as best we can.
We know that hearing these stories of harmful disrespect can also be distressing for the people charged with receiving, investigating or managing them. Research on trauma and recovery highlights the impact of vicarious trauma on those who witness or hear firsthand about the sexual harassment of another person, and the importance and gravity of offering people a chance to process and integrate their own emotional experience into these conversations.
You are being invited to a 1-1 session with a Transformational Coach from Mobius Executive Leadership. This initial session will be 90 minutes and you can direct the time in a way most useful for you. After this initial session, you will have the option to sign up for additional 60 minute sessions with your coach.
You judge your readiness to participate. It is important that you feel emotionally and mentally able to participate in a Session. We ask that you commit to seeking support from an appropriately qualified mental health professional if you are unsure of your readiness to participate. If you need help or support to build your own support network outside of these sessions, then please speak with your leader.
Participation is entirely voluntary, you are free to discontinue at any time. As this is a pilot it would be great if you were able to pass on any helpful feedback if you do withdraw.
- Prevent second-hand trauma from sustained exposure to emotionally challenging content
- Promote self-care practices for energy management and personal well-being/ resilience
- Build emotional intelligence, openness and authenticity
- Foster quality of engagement and passion in life
- Improved emotional self-management and better coping skills for stress/resilience
- Lessening of fear and increased confidence and courage in speaking up
- A clearer sense of your leadership aspirations, vision and life purpose
Please ensure you read this privacy and consent statement:
The sessions facilitated by Mobius are confidential and the content will not be shared with Rio Tinto. However, if during a session you provide information that indicates there is a risk of harm to you or someone else, Mobius has a duty of care to make that known to the head of your team and/or a representative of HR. This will ensure that the appropriate support can be provided to you without undue delay. You can also reach out to Rio Tinto’s EAP provider if you would like to seek the services of a licensed mental health professional. Mobius will provide you with more information about confidentiality and their duty of care in your first session.
As this is a pilot programme, we will ask you for feedback about your experience. We encourage you to provide feedback as it will help us to shape what would be useful for others in the future.
