What is Conflict Coaching?
Did you know the Amherst College ombuds offers conflict coaching for faculty, administrators and staff? Sometimes people in a conflict cannot see how to bridge the gap between the conflict and the resolution. Coaching helps bridge that gap. Unlike mediation, coaching involves only one party. Like mediation, the coach does not provide the solutions, but it helps the person determine and define goals. It helps broaden one's understanding of the conflict, including seeing it from the other side, exploring possible strategies for intervention and possible barriers, and opportunities to practice the strategies with coach feedback. Could you benefit from conflict coaching? Contact Cate Woolner, Amherst College ombuds, at 413-542-5156 or cwoolner@amherst.edu. Conflict coaching is confidential, safe and informal.
