Coaching, Facilitation, & Change Management

Main page content

HR supports everyone who works for UW Tacoma: Staff, faculty and student workers. We do so in a variety of ways, including help with 1:1 problem solving, facilitation, and designing and managing change initiatives.


The HR Team uses proven coaching methodologies to help you develop fresh approaches to the challenges you face, be they supervisory, interpersonal, or work related. Plan on 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the complexity of the challenge. We listen, ask questions, and help you identify practical solutions that you can implement promptly.


Tapping into the wisdom and talent of colleagues requires intention and expertise. Use HR as you would any consultant in helping you design and facilitate meetings and retreats aimed at:

  • Teambuilding
  • Envisioning a compelling future
  • Strategic planning
  • Clarifying roles & responsibilities
  • Creative problem solving

Change Management

Change is a fact of organizational life. How thoughtfully and intentionally change initiatives are planned and implemented has much to do with their ultimate success. HR staff can help you and your team work through the intended and unintended consequences of planned change, such as restructurings, process improvement, and expanding or contracting services.
