Coaching

Through coaching, faculty and staff can improve their performance and enhance the quality of their lives.  The coaching process includes listening, observing, and customizing an approach to the individual’s needs. Coaches seek to elicit solutions and strategies by providing support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the faculty or staff member already has.   (Taken from ICF Website, 2008)
