Easy Signup

Your organization will provide you with a password/information on how to sign up and UWC will make every effort to assign you a coach within 1-2 weeks. Once you have signed up, you will be assigned a spot for four pro bono coaching sessions with the UWC. We will take into consideration your area of expertise, geographic location and language preference.

With regards to language, we will make every effort to assign you a coach in your preferred language, and we hope you understand if the coaching has to be in your second language – simply based on the number of multilingual coaches that are working with us.

Pairing Process

We hope that you are as enthusiastic as our coaches are to begin the coaching relationship and please do contact your coach as soon as possible. We would like for this to be your responsibility, your first gesture on the commitment to the coaching.

Some coaches may contact you first, please be sure to answer this email as soon as possible.

Encountering Problems?

If you encounter any difficulties in the process, contact

In order to make the most out of this resource, after you are paired and in contact with your coach we strongly encourage you get started on your coaching hours as soon as possible. The period during which you will have access to your coach as part of The UWC will conclude three months after your first session. Remember that you may divide the hours as best fits the schedules of you and your coach.

Honouring Your Relationship

Our coaches are volunteers for the UWC donating their time and also have full time coaching practices and jobs. Our coaches want to support you in your professional and personal development.  As such, we would encourage you to honor their time by making any changes to agreed upon appointments preferably 48 hours and at least 24 hours in advance.

Other aspects of your specific relationship with your coach such as missed sessions and what happens if a session is missed or cancelled will be agreed upon between you and your coach during the first meeting

Please note that should you wish to continue the use of the coach beyond the four hours provided you are welcome to do so, but you would need to arrange funding for this either through your work or personally.
