Coach

Coach

The HR professional plays several roles in the business. Different roles may be more or less important depending on the HR and business agenda. It is rare for the HR professional to spend extended periods in one role. Rather they are likely to engage in a particular role to achieve a key objective, therefore flexibility is key. Their overall focus is on achieving the business strategy and goals. They will use their local HR plan and agenda to further this together with any corporate wide strategy initiatives, tailored to their business.

You may be called upon to coach senior managers or management team colleagues – usually through a specific issue relating to their role. This is a critical way to support others to develop leadership and management skills, and facilitate decision making on people issues. How effectively you establish the coaching relationship will be key to its effectiveness, and requires careful work considering the wider relationship you are likely to have with your coachees.
