Coaching

Coaching is a process of guiding an employee from one level of competency to another. Employees who engage in coaching are more likely to improve their self-confidence and grow in their ability to:

  • communicate effectively.
  • work constructively with others.
  • meet commitments and take responsibility for their actions.
  • set goals and take action to achieve them.

Although coaching is not mentoring, counseling, or teaching, the one-on-one sessions provide crucial space for personal development, which can improve your productivity and performance. Common focus areas for coaching include:

  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Decision-making and problem-solving
  • Goal setting and strategic thinking and planning
  • Leadership and team development
  • Organization and time-management
  • Teamwork and relationship building
