Coaching is about providing support and advice to help an individual recognize ways they can improve their effectiveness and performance. Coaching has traditionally been employed to help a poor or struggling performer improve. Now it is recognized as a solid methodology for encouraging strong performers to grow and improve even faster. Effective leaders use coaching to provide direction, instruction, and training to help their team members grow skills and achieve objectives.
Holding others accountable to their goals provides opportunities for growth, learning, and ongoing motivation. Accountability starts with clearly defined performance objectives, and the leader measures individual and group contributions against that end, working diligently to close the gaps. The tools provided in July's meeting close the gap between expected performance and actual results. In this session, you'll learn a step-by-step process to coach for improved performance.
