You may think that "performance coaching" means coaching for high performers – in other words, people who, for whatever reason, have been identified as "star talent."
In reality, performance coaching is about helping all people reach their full potential, in any area of their lives. We work with anyone to improve their performance at work.
Performance coaching helps people explore their motivation, and overcome any issues that might be interfering with their effectiveness. Our approach incorporates both support and challenge.
- Long-range career or life planning – There is a great deal of robust evidence showing that people with clear plans and goals are more likely to be successful in the long term.
- Navigating career change points – An example of a career change point could be the transition from being primarily seen as a manager to being seen as a leader – someone who offers clear guidance and genuine inspiration. Coaching can help people navigate these change points more successfully.
- Making fundamental changes to performance or behavior – This involves the equivalent of athletes breaking bad habits in their game, and relearning basic skills the right way.
- Handling major setbacks – Performance coaching can help people recover from major business or personal setbacks. In particular, it can help people address work-life imbalances, or deal with major episodes of stress or burnout.
