Coaching for Performance
Classroom
Instructors: Douglas Kerr

Let’s face it. We can’t manage someone else’s performance or motivate anybody to do anything. People manage and motivate themselves. If we understand why people do what they do, then we have a better shot at influencing their choices by modelling the performance standards we want, focusing on what we want more of, and being increasingly skilled and mindful in our conversations with team members, colleagues, and managers using encouragement, support, guidance and development strategies.
