Performance Insights:

Employers Increase Coaching to Drive Performance


A new report by Bersin & Associates, a research and advisory firm in Oakland, California, finds that employers are increasingly looking to coaching as a strategy to manage performance of their workforce. One reason for the increased interest in coaching is the influx of the millennial generation in the workplace. This generation of workers tends to crave frequent feedback and one-on-one interaction with managers and mentors. Additionally, companies also have stepped up their use of coaching to bolster the skills of frontline managers. The study points out that while managers play an important new role as accountability managers, the transition to a coaching-driven performance model is not easy. The main challenge the report cites is managers who do not have the interpersonal skills needed to effectively coach.

 Align Strategy and Execution for Breakthrough Results

The economic climate is changing and success is increasingly dependent on your leadership's ability to navigate and lead the change necessary to achieve your strategic objectives. Aligning talent and engaging your workforce to execute against that direction is critical to long-term business success.



The STRAT program was developed in conjunction with Dr. Alan M. Patterson, President of Mentoré.  The program uses a coaching and development model to help businesses develop leaders with the strategic agility, and the credibility to align and motivate cross-functional resources to achieve high levels of performance within their organizations.
