Coaching has grown to be highly popular. Many individuals, business owners or organizations managers find themselves needing a helping hand…or find themselves thrust in the role of offering advice to others. That is especially true of managers who, while conducting performance reviews, may find a need to provide specific feedback and advice about what to do to improve job performance to those individual employees or teams reporting to them.
It is an honor and a privilege for coaches to provide coaching for individuals, teams, organizations, and organizations’ leadership. In whatever capacity, these individuals or organizations are placing their trust in the coaches, as internal managers-as-coaches or as external professional coaches, trainers, facilitators, or consultants. In all these cases, coaches’ skills and competencies make a difference in developing the intent of coaching undertaken. This book and its authors utterly take this trust and professional responsibility and offer a systematic approach to high-performance coaching. It is written for you if you must offer coaching to help your clients or employees improve on-the-job performance.
While many approaches to coaching could help to facilitate performance improvement, the authors of this book favor a planned approach to coaching that is geared to helping others identify what they need to do to improve their job performance and productivity. An effective high-performance coaching effort meets the needs of the organization and its people. It relies on a positive view of people and the situation and a strong effort to encourage participation and inclusion in all aspects of the coaching experience.
This book provides a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to implementing a high-performance coaching effort for human resource practitioners, business coaches and consultants, managers of all kinds, and others interested in managing and improving human performance and increasing individuals and teams’ productivity.
