There are many definitions of performance; almost all of them contain the words – accomplishment, act, achievement, action, excel.
Some definitions of performance relate to a standard of achievement which is set against an existing set of results or norms.
In business or sport high levels of performance are required to stay at the top of the game. Raising the bar is an ongoing event, aiming higher, riskier, stronger, faster and brighter in an effort to be the best.
Performance coaching can be delivered as a team or individual approach, however our recommendation would be that a team work together to get the best out of each other. Some of the topics might include:
- Performance attributes relating to your company / team / role
- Performance environment
- Company goal
- Aims and objectives
- Team structure – how does each individual contribute to the overall team performance?
- Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats
Exploring the basic context of team performance can highlight common themes which provide the basis for performance improvement.
Performance coaching raises the bar and helps individuals reach their potential. Individual coaching is beneficial when some performance attributes are weak, for example confidence, motivation, high levels of procrastination, poor self esteem, inability to make decisions, low frustration tolerance etc.
On Site Activity Programmes
Exercise and activity are similar but we believe have two very different contexts.
Activity relates to how much movement occurs during the day and exercise relates to purposeful activity which is structured, timed and is specific.
In some recent tests a group of work station based employees were asked to wear pedometers every day for a week. The steps were combined and divided between the number of employees taking part. The average number of steps taken during each day was 400; it was therefore not surprising when other symptoms relating to inactivity were also discovered. These included feeling sluggish, losing concentration and weight gain.
On site activity programmes will be dependant of the company facilities but can range from internet support, team competitions, lunchtime walks, Pilates classes, yoga, group jogging, power walking and if there is a spare room available in the workplace, we can deliver exercise classes.
