What Is A Communication Coach? And Why Would I Need One?Lack of communication is one of the most common causes of divorce.  And, unfortunately, communication does not typically improve during a divorce settlement, and often stays strained well after a divorce is final. However, stronger and improved communication often results in a better outcome for all involved, and can set a more positive tone for co-parenting after divorce. Working with a communication coach may be suggested (or required) by the courts, an attorney, or a Parenting Consultant.  The goal of working with a communication coach is to help you and your soon to be ex-spouse reduce and resolve conflict, increase productivity of discussions, and ultimately to decrease the overall need for costly litigation. Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation serves as a communication coach for couples that need this service.

Benefits of Using a Communication Coach

Communication coaching is tailored to meet the unique needs of the couple and their family.  Every couple is different and every divorce is different. Coaching can cover a wide variety of topics and issues including strategies and best practices for communicating clearly with your ex-spouse, in business-like way, protecting kids from parental conflict.  We help you raise concerns with your ex, plan strategies for really listening to your ex-spouse’s perspective, and develop strategies for looking forward toward your future, rather than focusing on the pain of the past.

Communication coaching is most effective when both parties are open to feedback about their communication styles and when they are focused on doing what is best for their family moving forward. This often means being open to compromise. Co-parenting is a new phase of a relationship and improving communication during the divorce process can lay a strong foundation for successful co-parenting for many years to come.  This approach will benefit both parties as well as the children that are shared in the marriage.
