Stop the clock

You want to perform..  But does your team perform?

We spend our lives chasing the clock, chasing our tails, chasing the boss.

When do we stop to think?

Our structured coaching for leaders can help.

We ask leaders to take time out and help them work more effectively?

The purpose of leadership coaching is to provide a framework for reviewing the essential components of team performance.  It provides an outside perspective and can be structured to explore issues under the surface.

These are like separate pieces of a puzzle.

As we explore each component we can see ways of improving it.  Team coaching will also represent an opportunity to share ideas and look at practical ways with which to introduce new approaches to teamwork.  It is about taking the long vision, not just looking at today’s symptoms.

Why Is It Important:

There are many people who can influence the performance of a team. The obvious ones are customers and suppliers. Less obvious ones are external coaches who can:

  • Spot opportunities
  • Introduce new tools and approaches
  • Provide feedback

It is only through a culture of continuous improvement that you can develop your team’s performance.  This means

  1. Talking  about  the  things  that  are  important
  2. Targetting things which need improvement
  3. Recognising your successes
  4. Building confidence.
