Peak Performance Coaching Specialty Areas

Strength-Based Coaching

The most efficient path to peak performance is to start with where there is already momentum - your God given talents.

Talent n. a naturally recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied. 

Strength n. the ability to consistently produce a positive outcome through near-perfect performance in a specific task. To finish with strength, start with talent.

Strength-based development coaching is all about applying your greatest talents towards existing and new work activities. Employees who focus on their strengths are 3x as likely to report having an excellent quality of life and 6x as likely to be engaged in their job. Further employees who use their strengths every day have 7.8% greater productivity and 8.9% greater profitability.

Using Gallup strength-based tools, coaching clients learn to:

  1. Name strengths - gain great familiarity with how you are built 'right'
  2. Claim strengths - gain awareness of how strengths make you feel stronger in day-to-day activities
  3. Aim strengths - develop new strategies for driving performance through your unique 'strength lens'

Stress & Resilience Coaching

Peak performance means a person originates from a centered and balanced point of reference. Typically, stress stands in the way of one's full potential.

Stress is the result of an imbalance between a person's demands and resources. The long-term effects of this tension wreaks havoc on our health and well-being. Surprisingly, stress is not the problem. The human system was designed to experience stress in certain situations, but not long-term chronic tension. 21st Century solutions lie in our ability to self-regulate and change:

  1. How we perceive challenges (cognitive),
  2. How we react to challenges (behavioral),
  3. How we feel about challenges (emotional).

With the aid of HeartMath biofeedback meditation systems, coaching clients learn how to self-regulate and build new physiological baselines that result in sustainable perceptual, attitudinal, and behavioral changes. These easy-to-use, evidence-based skills have been shown to be effective with a variety of mental and emotional issues, including peak performance. 

Leadership Coaching

With over 70% of the variance in Employee Engagement due to who leads a team, developing leadership skills is essential for today's complex work environment.

  1. Motivate every single employee to take action and engage employees with compelling mission and vision.
  2. Demonstrate assertiveness to drive outcomes and ability to overcome adversity and resistance.
  3. With a growth mindset, make decisions based on productivity not politics, using meaningful, measurable, and objective performance outcomes.
  4. Create a culture of accountability characterized by efficiency responsibility.
  5. Build relationships that create trust, growth in others, and open dialogue.

Using a vareity of research based practices, coaching clients learn to become the type of leaders their employees want to follow.
