What Makes a Good Conflict Coach?

A conflict coach must be mindful of many things. The coach must be capable of noticing your subtleties of behavior and body language, as these often reveal more about how you feel than you do with your words. Top conflict coaches are always very attentive because it often leads to breakthroughs. Being attentive can mean anything from creating and maintaining an environment in which the client feels safe and secure to simply being a good listener and making sure to understand the client’s feelings and motivations.

What is Conflict Coaching? An Introduction:

The purpose of hiring a conflict coach is simply to resolve a conflict. A conflict coach should not attempt to do anything other than solve the conflict; it is his or her job to adhere to the client’s goal and not what the coach may feel is a more appropriate goal. There are several different approaches to conflict coaching. One approach is called “interest-based, problem-solving coaching” where a coach must assist the client in realizing the motivations of all parties to have a conflict. Then, the coach guides the client through brainstorming creative resolutions. Another, less official and less involved form of conflict coaching is called “transformative conflict coaching.” With this method, coach involvement is minimal and the client comes to his or her own conclusions with the guidance of a coach. Alternately, the conflict style is then used as a springboard for exploration of the particular conflict at hand. This method has been shown to be very effective in on-campus settings, although it can be used in other environments as well. The ultimate purpose of all these methods is to help the client consider different perspectives and step away from their conflict and their habitual way of perceiving and experiencing conflict.
