AP Case Study 3 – Specialist Workplace Coaching


A leading government organisation.


Senior Management were alerted to inappropriate displays of aggressive behaviour by a middle level manager towards staff.

  • The employee lacked insight into his behaviour and its impact on other employees
  • Management had previously sent the manager on a leadership development program, they saw an improvement in key performance targets but behaviour did not improve.
  • Increase in absenteeism by his team and one resignation
  • Issues of his behaviour had not been formally addressed in the past

  • A separate consultant was appointed to support senior management and HR in managing the presenting issues as well as to support the broader team that was being impacted.
  • At the completion of the specialist workplace coaching a review took place between management, HR and the participant.
  • Recommendations were outlined by the consultant


  • The participant successfully completed the 8 coaching sessions with significant change in behaviour and insight development.
  • The participant developed new skills and behaviours which were more professional, functional and appropriate
