Students for students coaching was initiated by Master students with a specialization in coaching and supports Bachelor’s and Master’s students in the Human Resources & Organization study programs.
Futurologist Matthias Horx (2020) describes the current Covid-19 situation as “a historical moment in which the future changes direction”. In such moments, strong ambivalences can arise, an additional burden to which our students are also exposed. Coaching offers a way to deal with changes in the environment that lead to changes in one’s own person, to reflect on them, to activate resources, to develop possible future scenarios and to steer them in the right direction. Furthermore, it is important to develop oneself in topics that support professional development”. This includes above all content such as:
- Increasing professional/study related performance
- Expanding career opportunities
- Increasing self-esteem/ self-confidence
- Recognizing and using potential
- Determining strengths and areas of development
- Improving entrepreneurial strategies
- Improving work-life balance
The Coaching Pool at FHWien der WKW offers this possibility. Self-organized, advanced students register as coaches in a Moodle course and Bachelor’s and Master’s students have access as coachees. The platform explains processes, behavioral criteria and ethical and data protection guidelines. In this way, students also learn about the framework conditions for setting up such a pool, a relevant knowledge for business practice.
