Personal Development Coaching
Personal development coaching is geared to the individual who is seeking to make changes in their life but is unsure about the direction they should take. Whether the changes are of a personal or professional nature the coach can assist the individual in developing the techniques and formulating the questions the need to ask to help them clarify their thinking, discover a new direction, and develop a plan to move ahead in life.
Conflict Resolution Coaching
Whether in the workplace or in your personal relationships, if you find yourself in conflict and are stuck on how to move forward, conflict resolution coaching may be able to help you develop the skills you need to address conflict in a productive way. In conflict resolution coaching you will raise your awareness of the skills needed for successful resolution. You will have the opportunity to practice those skills in a safe and controlled environment and you will learn how to reinforce your new skills. By enhancing your conflict resolution, you can avoid unnecessary disputes or more effectively address and resolve them after they have started.
Sometimes you just can’t work through a conflict without a little help. That where mediation can assist both parties to come to a mutually agreeable resolution to an issues.
Mediation is a voluntary process in which an impartial third party (a mediator) works with people in conflict to aid them in reaching a resolution. This is achieved through the facilitation of constructive conversations about perceptions, feelings, and information about the issues in dispute. The mediation process occurs between the parties in a neutral, controlled environment. The goal is to reduce hostility, to encourage rational discussion and, when possible, to arrive at a mutually agreeable resolution to the issues.
In the mediation process the parties involved in the dispute make decisions about how to deal with their situation, control the outcomes, and make the decision on how to resolve the conflict.
