Supporting your families, strengthening your workforce

Having a family shouldn’t be a barrier to success. Talking Talent offers coaching for working parents and carers, so they can be their best – at home and at work. 

We support organisations in creating workplaces that are inclusive, flexible, and family-friendly. We help all working parents and carers achieve equal opportunities for growth and progression, meeting your working families where they need it most. 

At Talking Talent we can help you achieve the ideal coaching blend to meet the needs of your organisation and your people. Combining 1:1 coaching, group coaching and digital delivery, our blended approach means that we can support and nurture your working families at every step, keeping it personal to them. 

As pioneers in coaching for working parents, we know a thing or two about the benefits of parent coaching. Better engagement, connection, performance and retention to name a few. 

Inspire the kind of culture you’re your people feel part of. 

Over two thirds (68%) feel professional pressures now negatively impact their ability to be the parent they’d like to be, whilst three-in-five (57%) feel guilty that they don’t spend enough time with their children. 

Parental Transitions Coaching

Welcome to the family:why new beginnings are good for business.

Parents face new challenges with each addition to their family. And we want to create a world of work where everyone can be their best and grow. So for us, that means being able to fully balance the intersection between work and family life. Our expert parental transitions coaching provides personalised development that helps all parents (and their managers) prepare for leave, return to work smoothly and manage longer-term career sustainability.

Our coaching gets great results for everyone. Stronger leaders with better engagement and connection, increased retention, alongside building inclusive cultures that promote career development and work-life balance.

Working Parents Coaching

Family matters: The power of investing in your parents.

Juggling additional responsibilities at home naturally affects all facets of your working parents lives, including work. Rather than ignoring these unique challenges, businesses can equip parents to thrive with new leadership skills, behaviours and mindsets.

We’ve created coaching programmes to help working parents through the different stages of family life. From thinking about starting a family, through to managing financial wellbeing, and parenting school-age children. We help your parents boost career confidence and momentum, manage time, energy and boundaries and build resilience and essential grit.

Family-focused employers receive higher engagement, improved diversity and greater return on investment – fact.

Unlock the potential within your parents.

Coaching for Carers

An inclusive approach: Caring about coaching for everyone.

We offer coaching support for the working carer, understanding the emotional and practical challenges of working and caring. We enable your people with strategies to plan for the future, adapt and grow, becoming the person they were made to be, navigating the situation and ensuring success. Our programmes are tailored to the specific circumstances of your people, creating a safe space for those important conversations.

Being a family-friendly workplace goes beyond supporting parents.
