What is Job Coaching?Job coaching is a personalized service that helps you learn and perform your job duties effectively and independently. A job coach is a trained professional who works with you one-on-one at your workplace to provide you with the following assistance:
- Orientation: Your job coach will help you get familiar with your work setting, co-workers, supervisor, and expectations. They will also help you understand your rights and responsibilities as an employee.
- Training: Your job coach will teach you how to do your job tasks correctly and efficiently. They will use various methods, such as demonstration, instruction, feedback, and reinforcement, to help you master your skills.
- Support: Your job coach will provide you with ongoing support and encouragement to help you overcome any challenges or difficulties you may face at work. They will also help you communicate with your employer and co-workers, handle any conflicts or issues, and adjust to any changes or expectations.
- Fading: Your job coach will gradually reduce their presence and involvement as you become more confident and competent in your job. They will monitor your progress and performance and provide you with follow-up services as needed.
