Self-coaching invites and encourages people to reflect through learning by reading and listening to themselves, asking questions and empowering themselves to facilitate their own development and improvement in performance.

These human resource (HR) coaching tools include online self assessments to provide more self-awareness. Being unaware, we unconsciously engage our default behavior. Only when we become aware of something, are we able to make choices as to the action we wish to take. Sometimes, just being aware, allows the problem to solve us--rather than requiring us to solve the problem.
Self-coaching tools are about designing and using the information in a way most appropriate for its purpose. Often, coaching tools are labeled with the prefix "coaching" because they are more sophisticated, flexible, adaptable or customized than other standardized, off-the-shelf solutions. Please note that the term "self-coaching" may apply to specific as well as general tools. Terms like "leadership coaching tips," "career women coaching tips," and "baby boomer life coaching tips" may emphasize that these areas are understood and done in a coaching way.
