The challenge of leading knowledge workers and teams is that traditional coaching techniques no longer have the same impact. "Coach as expert" rarely results in sustainable improvement in performance.

This results in new behaviours that lead to increased confidence, energy, enthusiasm, and the skill to take on new challenges.

THINK ABOUT IT!
How many of us continually and unintentionally "shoot ourselves in the foot"?
Imagine being able to identify these patterns, self-correct,
and subsequently apply those learnings to other aspects of your life!
Think of a tennis player who, rather than focusing on the ball, is focusing on not being embarrassed and worrying about the strength of her backhand or the accuracy of her serve. This internal conversation can have a tremendously negative impact on the player’s performance.
The coach helps the player focus on what is important - hitting the ball.
