Employee Relations



We all face difficult situations at work. Taking the time to find ways to effectively address those situations makes work more fulfilling, reduces stress, and makes us all more productive. Employee Relations offers a number of resources to faculty and staff which can help you find the answers you seek.

Workplace Coaches

Coaching Corner Brochure

Workplace coaching is a service in which a trained peer from within the Mason community helps a faculty or staff member to address a workplace issue they are facing. Coaching can help you to clearly identify the issue, clarify perceptions, identify potential solutions and develop a way to implement them.

Our coaches are members of academic and nonacademic areas who have been trained in coaching skills and workplace issues. Whether you are a faculty member, a supervisor, or a classified staff member, we have a coach to meet your needs. If you would like to sign up with a coach, please complete our intake form. Send your completed form to Employee Relations via our confidential fax number (703-993-4275) or email ( All requests for coaching and the contents of your coaching sessions are kept strictly confidential.
