Before you begin, we’d like to orient you to QwikCoach, which is organized around three main categories: People Smarts, Personal Savvy, and Business Sense. Each category includes a variety of topics — or areas of competence– and QwikCoach provides three types of coaching support for each one:
Knowledge Central identifies relevant competencies associated with each topic and provides targeted coaching support including:
- A general description of each competency.
- Specific tips and techniques needed to develop, improve, and demonstrate competence.
- Relevant practice ideas designed to help users put needed competencies to work easily and effectively.
Fast Answers offers insights into commonly asked questions related to each area of competence and provides answers just like you’d get from a real coach. Our team continues to expand the list of questions and encourages users to suggest additional Fast Answer questions. A virtual “suggestion box” is provided.
The Resource Center provides access to a wide range of additional resources from a variety of trusted providers — all considered to be well-respected thought leaders in the field of professional development or established experts in the relevant area. Examples of resource providers include Ted Talks, Forbes, American Management Association, Harvard Business Review, and Fast Company. There is no advertising on the QwikCoach site, resource links take you to the organization site to read or buy any suggested tool or resource.
Users can use this coaching content to develop or strengthen their abilities in all of the areas offered in QwikCoach.
Always There When You Need It
You might have said no to coaching in the past because it was too expensive or not flexible or comprehensive enough. Even if you have a great manager, an available mentor, or a professional coach, they just cannot be there for you all the time or always at the moment you need help most.
With QwikCoach though, it’s like having a “live” workplace coach who can provide expert, confidential, one-on-one help, whenever you need it.
Whether you want to fill the gap in critical performance support that typically occurs between performance reviews and when you are expected to achieve performance goals that were set, or just want to sharpen the abilities you need to perform at your best today and every day with all the insights and encouragement you need to keep growing, you’re covered with QwikCoach.
All the Coaching You Need In One Place
With all your workplace performance coaching in one place and accessible anytime, you can work independently and at your own pace to develop strategies and competencies that contribute to improved performance and success.
Because QwikCoach is an all-in-one virtual workplace performance coaching solution, you have access to immediate advice on how to handle everyday workplace challenges – the ones that ultimately determine workplace success or failure.

- Convincing others that you know what you’re talking about.
- Getting others to give you the work you need to meet your goals and objectives.
- Presenting information in a meeting so that others will listen and understand.
- You feel you’re wasting your time on a team because the team has lost its motivation, but your boss still expects the team to get the job done.
- Others say you are difficult to deal with, and you don’t know what you can do to make them more comfortable with you.
- You think the easiest thing to do is to just do what needs to be done and get on with it, but others say it makes sense to involve others.
- You don’t know how to get a project back on track that has fallen behind schedule.
- Your boss says everyone’s goal should be to improve customer retention, but your job doesn’t even allow you to be in front of customers.
- Your time seems to “slip away” from you, so you can’t even get the important things done.
- You need to have people on your side who are “higher up” to get your job done, but you can’t get them to be as responsive as you need them to be because they see you as too far down the “food chain.”
- You know the project you’ve been assigned has unrealistic goals and deadlines.
- You need input and information from people who are not always cooperative or available to help you carry out a project that has been assigned to you.
- You don’t think your boss appreciates you – or even likes you.
