Whether Performance Coaching is focused on individual or organizational excellence it is always about individuals and teams and how they can achieve their goals. Performance Coaching is a very effective way to support leader and manager development. The most successful leader and manager development initiatives focus on developing leaders and managers in the process of achieving organizational goals. This is best achieved through Performance Coaching as part of overall performance improvement as opposed to separating manager and leader development and expecting the learning to be implemented on the job. Performance Coaches facilitate the achievement of clear client defined individual and organizational goals.
