Coaching supports the professional growth and development of Georgia State employees and managers by analyzing opportunities and challenges, identifying goals, and charting action plans.
Georgia State’s Organization Development (OD) consultants are trained to listen with an open and compassionate mind, ask crucial questions that increase awareness and understanding, and brainstorm strategies, resources and approaches to achieve goals.
Managers can refer themselves and/or their direct reports for coaching. Coaching is often used to intervene when there are issues and/or to prevent issues from becoming more consequential and serious. Managers seek coaching to engage their team more effectively and support the development of their direct reports. Employees seek coaching to strengthen relationships with coworkers, supervisors and stakeholders; to develop their career; and pursue long-term goals.
Coaching engagement begins with an initial consultation to clarify the employee’s need and goal; if coaching is appropriate and has the possibility of being effective; and if the dynamic between the coach and coaches has the potential to grow.
OD also accepts employees from and refers employees to:
- The Office of Faculty Affairs, Office of the Provost
- The Office of the Ombudsperson, Office of the Provost
- The Office of Employee Relations, Human Resources Administration
- Employee Development and Wellness, Human Resources Administration
- Diversity Education Planning, Human Resources Administration
