Realising your potential

At Twenty11, we want to empower you - our customers - to realise your potential through helping you to make, meet and exceed goals in both your personal and working life. We also want to encourage you to play an active and positive role through volunteering, either for Twenty11 or by helping your neighbours and wider community.

Our Community Potential Specialist may work with you on a one to one basis to provide lifecoaching, motivation and support. This can be through helping with access to training or work experience, improving your confidence and wellbeing, getting you back into employment or helping you progress in your chosen career – depending on what you want to achieve and what we, and our partners, can help you with. 

We work with a network of partners across Wycombe and Bucks to give you access to exciting and varied opportunities. Some of these partners will be large organisations like the Job Centre, while others will be small businesses that provide very specific services like coaching. Our approach for Twenty11 is a completely new way of working – not just for us, but in the housing sector. That’s why we’re running a trial in 2018, initially for 6 months, so that we can make sure we have designed everything in the right way. Our first customers who use the ‘realising potential’ programme will then help shape it for future customers.

Why use lifecoaching?

Lifecoaching is all about helping people to identify and achieve their personal goals. Our Community Potential Specialist is available to work with you to help identify or clarify what you want to do with your life and help create a plan of action to achieve those goals. At the heart of our ‘realising potential’ approach is the idea that you - the customer - have the power to help yourself, with a little assistance where needed.

How it works 

Our Community Potential Specialist is available to work with you to understand what you want to achieve, what you believe your potential is, and what you think the barriers are which prevent you from realising it.

The Community Potential Specialist will then work with you to draw up a Personal Success Plan and work together to achieve it – including identifying where partner organisations can provide services to meet specific needs, for example:

  • Securing work experience placements
  • Finding volunteering or community involvement opportunities
  • Helping to enhance CV’s or applications
  • Providing mentoring or coaching
  • Help with maximising income/improving finances
  • Helping with interviews and being ‘interview ready’
 
Personal success plans

What does a personal success plan look like?

This will depend entirely on individual goals, where you are now and where you want to get to. For example, it can include:

  • A clear description of your goals and objectives with timescales where relevant A commitment to do the actions which have been agreed
  • Details of the support Twenty11 and partner organisations will provide
  • Your commitment to maintain regular communication with the Community Potential Specialist
