Providing quality and effective job supports is one of the more rewarding work activities that you’ll ever do. The role is varied and includes support, training, communication, interpretation and negotiation. And while these materials will try to clarify aspects of quality support, the role is occasionally confusing. The supports are provided in someone else’s business and job coaches are often viewed as outsiders. Current employees, supervisors and even customers will wonder who you are and what your role is. Questions will be asked and directions will be given. This information is designed to answer some of those questions and to clarify any uncertainties so you will be comfortable and effective in your duties.
