Coaching:

Sometimes people in conflict situations can benefit from one-on-one coaching.

A coach may use inquiry, reflection, encouragement and discussion to help a client identify his or her goals in a conflict situation and develop strategies to achieve those goals. One common strategy is to work on communication skills.  Unlike a counselor or mentor, a coach rarely offers advice. Instead, a coach helps clients to find their own solutions, by asking questions that give them insight into their situations. A coach holds a client accountable, so if a client agrees to a plan to achieve a goal, a coach will help motivate them to complete their plan.
