Coaching for Performance

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, and 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 workshop helps 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.
