From the Paper:

"As a correctional coach, the goal is to listen for the opportunity to guide employees into solutions that benefit the correctional setting and help the employees to establish goals or means to accomplish their ends. (Gomez 44) It is of the utmost importance to instill a positive morale amongst the work force. Gomez states that coaching is not the same as counseling, in that it is action oriented involving the implementation and subsequent accomplishment of goals. (44) The manager must of course follow the golden rule and treat the employees with respect; in this fashion it may be returned. The element of correctional coaching is also long-term, as goals are not necessarily accomplished overnight.
"As the task of being a correctional coach is consuming, there are various steps which must be taken. Initially the correctional coach must identify their idea as to the mission or ultimate goal of what they wish to establish for the organization is, and share this with their staff. Then is the observance of behavior, and upon data collection, correctional coaching would begin if needed. Areas that could use improvement are identified, alongside their goals for said improvement. Goals are defined and a plan of attack created then initiated. Along the way progress is measured and following the ultimate success a feedback process, with continual coaching to maintain motivation to ensure all areas maintain proper efficiency and do not necessitate the creation of correctional processes."
