The days of Annual Performance Reviews are over. Today people need and expect an ongoing dialogue with their managers to help them understand and build on their strengths, identify their weaknesses, and continuously improve their performance.
Leaders must be effective day-to-day coaches and take advantage of every opportunity to provide feedback and development for everyone on their team. To be truly effective coaches they need to create a safe place for learning, emphasize the importance of self-reflection and self-awareness, reinforce positive behaviors, identify weaknesses, and provide alternatives for growth – all while giving clear, direct, respectful and honest future-oriented feedback. It’s no small task, but that is what changes a manager into a leader.
One of the cores to GPG's training success is our unique 'Arena' training concept. Both leaders and their teams need to move out of their safe and familiar comfort zones and operate in the Arena where they are truly engaged and effective. Leaders and their teams who use our tried and tested formula are guaranteed to demonstrate more engagement within the organization. This method is available with all of our training materials.
Tension occurs in any conversation during which people’s performance is challenged.
Too often managers avoid the tension by providing little or ineffectual feedback or move into ‘tell’ mode which puts others on the defensive and harms morale. The Coaching for Performance Arena leverages a proven Coaching Model, SCORE, to:
The result is higher levels of engagement, commitment instead of compliance, and the agreement on a clear path for success.
GPG’s IP can be openly shared across your organization – in fact, we encourage it. Our business model is not about paying for IP licenses but rather about getting your people to use and apply the new skills to their real-world clients. This allows your entire organization to understand our methodology, support the thinking, create innovation within their units and develop new ideas for helping and renewing client contracts.
