What is Coaching in the Workplace?

Workplace coaching is the process of helping people to fully develop the tools, knowledge, and opportunities to achieve their personal and workplace goals. For many people, coaching in the workplace provides the support needed to develop skills and advance their career goals. When staff conflict arises, coaching can help staff before workplace mediation to achieve a more constructive outcome, or after workplace mediation in adapting to the agreements reached at a workplace mediation.

What are the Goals of Workplace Coaching?

Coaching works to improve performance and unleash the potential of the individual to accomplish their goals and to deal more effectively with conflict. The individual learns to:

  • develop leadership and management communication techniques
  • get the most from their staff
  • advance career goals
  • grow the capacity to deal with difficult people and situations
  • prepare effectively for difficult negotiations and workplace mediation
  • understand their impact on others
