As individuals at work, each person has a part to play in the success of their organisation. Whether it is the business of saving lives or the business of earning a profit, each person has a role in how well that organisation functions. Managers play a vital role in influencing and enhancing staff performance.
In reality, optimum performance or optimum productivity often does not occur. Staff can underperform for a variety of reasons and challenging behaviours can occur. Dysfunctional habits can develop and reactive, stress-induced incidents can lead to many unfortunate outcomes.
Coaching is a professional relationship designed to address these challenges by creating change.
Change is not all about being reactive and adaptive. Being able to create change as a leader by being proactive is as important, if not more so, than reacting or adapting accordingly. Coaches help managers to motivate, guide and develop staff performance. It is a collaborative, focused process to support leaders to create and deliver the change that is required.
