**Episode Highlights:**

- How Impact Coaching sits in the wider research impact development framework at Leeds

- Ged's personal journey using impact coaching as an ethnographic approach to understanding researchers' research impact development needs.

- The thoughtful intertwining of coaching methodologies with the pursuit of real-world research impact.

- How impact goals, stakeholder engagement, planning, and evaluation interweave within the coaching discourse.

- Reflections drawn from the coaching discussion group's engagement with "Self as Coach, Self as Leader" by Pamela McLean.

- Capacity considerations for impact coaches, including the balance between demand and personal limits.

- Insights into the practical aspects of starting or enhancing your own impact coaching service within your institution.
