Coaching for Performance

Develop and draw out the best in your staff!

A leader’s job is to get things done and through people. Developing staff is imperative for the continuing success of a team or organization. The people in and how they work together make an organization. Creating an exciting, even intense, rather than tense, environment for individuals to grow as a professional is a responsibility of leadership.

Performance coaching draws out the best in people, drives engagement, ownership, productivity, and growth. Leaders who coach foster shared understanding with their employees about their tasks and action plans. The employee has the clarity necessary for success and to assume responsibility. The leader is freed up to focus on the overarching issue that requires their attention.

Cost and time pressures make it tempting for the leader to provide solutions to problems. This course will help you find ways to hand the issues back to the person, provide constructive feedback that prompts learning, and encourage the person to find solutions for themselves.

The practical emphasis of this training means you can immediately use what you learn.
