Positive Organisational Coaching - PSYC4727

Year - 2018

How can psychology help create 'healthy' workplaces? Executive and management coaching have emerged as important factors in the enhancement of performance, engagement and well-being in the workplace, This unit examines key issues in contemporary executive and workplace coaching and equips students with the knowledge and skills to provide world-class executive and management coaching, The emphasis is on critical evaluation of theory and application to practice, Although primarily focused on positive psychology, solution-focused and cognitive- behavioural approaches to coaching in organisations, the application of psychodynamic (eg Kilburg) and systems (eg O'Neil) approaches to the enhancement of performance and well-being are also considered. The unit covers issues in senior executive coaching, coaching middle management, establishing manager-as-coach programs, and the use of positive psychology in the workplace.
