Journal-based coaching is a process that can stand on its own or fuel another type of coaching relationship. Journal- based coaching is a process where the employee writes down their feelings, areas where they feel like they need help in specific correlation to performance, and any other things a manager would like to track to help the employee improve. Journal-based coaching also has an inherent value for the employee simply using the journal. By writing down thoughts and feelings, it has been documented that this type of activity reduces stress and improves clarity when dealing with day-to-day workplace challenges. Today's employee has many many things to deal with. It's imperative we provide them tools and mechanisms to not only reduce stress but to look at stress as a challenge. Journal-based coaching not only allows for people to write down their thoughts and challenges, but it's a process that equips the manager to provide targeted improper coaching.
