Coaching for Individual and Team Performance

It isn’t surprising that in today’s world ‘coaching for performance’ is often a topic of a coaching assignment. With the current economic climate it has never been more important for managers and leaders to identify, retain and develop the talent in their businesses or organisations.

Achieving the right balance between managing performance and creating an environment where people can develop, grow and succeed has never been so critical to success. It creates your culture and becomes your Employer Brand and Employee Values Proposition.

And the same parameters apply to managers and leaders themselves. Each will have an individual and specific take on’ their performance’ and where they believe (or are told) they need to make improvements.

Global coaching surveys clearly demonstrate that performance and performance development are key targets for coaching interventions.  It isn’t always about helping improve to good performance. Increasingly individual performance coaching is about helping the individual realise their absolute attainment and achievement – good to great.

As well as engaging in 1:1 executive and leadership coaching on this topic we are very often engaged for team coaching to improve performance. We begin with the focus on what's right and what's working well. Our experence tells us that when we focus on the strengths of the people, and the team, ownership and collaboration become the means in themselves to make and sustain the growth and development that leads to success.

Additionally SneddonClark have developed a PerM™ Performance Management Programme which introduces a different take on managing people. One that is centred on how to help people succeed getting the best from those we manage.  The way we engage with and motivate our staff is key.

The PerM™ approach develops a coaching style of management that empowers and builds confidence in people to deliver the products and services needed by the organisation. It brings performance management into every day activity. It becomes a way of behaving that shapes cultures and brings its own rewards.
