Coaching helps with problems associated with ones working life and is a collaborative, goal-directed process to help individuals and groups develop their capabilities in the workplace by removing the psychological blocks that interfere with change.
Performance coaching can act as a powerful catalyst for maximising workplace potential, gaining insight and for changing self-limiting beliefs and behaviours. In a corporate context performance coaching can help managers and staff at all levels of the organisation to address career-blocking problems quickly and effectively.
Cognitive behavioural and solution-focused approaches in performance coaching have built up an evidence base that indicates the approach reduces: anxiety; stress; depression; perfectionism and self-handicapping. The approach has been found to enhance: goal-striving; well-being; hope; resilience; cognitive hardiness; sales performance; core self-evaluation; ‘significant’ personal and professional value; global self-rating of performance and emotional management.
