The Virginia Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) offers Conflict Coaching for state employees and agency management:
Conflict Coaching is offered by DHRM’s Office of Employment Dispute Resolution. Conflict coaching can help employees by:
- Gaining a better understanding of individual conflict behavior in order to promote more effective workplace conflict resolution.
- Improving awareness about what triggers conflict within and how to respond to workplace conflict constructively.
- Utilizing either the individual or the 360 Conflict Dynamic Profile assessment to identify employee’s most problematic areas.
- Working with an employee to create a personal action which outlines goals, set target dates, and helps to keep the employee accountable.
To request conflict coaching, employees may submit a Conflict Coaching Consultation Request Form
to the Office of Employment Dispute Resolution. The Workplace Conflict Consultation Program Director will then contact the employee and the agency to setup an initial conflict coaching consultation. Further instruction about the Conflict Dynamic Profile assessments and follow up coaching sessions will be provided during the initial consultation.
