Leadership Coaching

“Be the leader you wish you had.” - Simon Sinek –

Leadership Coaching

Every top athlete has a coach. For individuals and teams, coaches are expected to maximise performance, yet only recently has coaching gained traction in the corporate sector. Effective coaching can improve performance exponentially as an executive, just as it can for sportspeople. The Performance by Design Real Coaching program helps high performers become the leader they wish they had.

Executive Coaching helps people to identify their professional goals, align them with their personal goals, enhance strengths, support weaknesses, and build self-awareness to effectively lead others. It may come as no surprise that 25 to 40% of Fortune 500 companies utilise executive coaches, according to Hay Group research.

Performance by Design blends critical insights and learnings from over 200 years in combined expertise in sport and business to support the growth of functional performance into executive leadership. Real Coaching brings new insight, improves communication, and delivers greater decision-making empowerment in all situations especially under pressure, resulting in enhanced performance. Continuous professional growth is imperative to maintain your own and therefore your team’s engagement and career satisfaction. We have a strong focus on leadership and trust, coaching you on the key elements of being a role model leader.

Our Real Coaching program is an outcome-focused consultation to help executives take the chance out of their leadership. The Performance by Design Real Coaching program is designed to assist participants to lead a culture that is underpinned by psychological safety where every member of the team feels safe to express their view, honestly and candidly to achieve high performance.

Insights Discovery Profiling

“Leadership is the art of getting or inspiring people to want to do what must be done.” - Jim Collins

Highly self-aware leaders are seen as more effective than those who have poor self-awareness. Performance by Design uses Insights Discovery Profiling to raise the level of self-awareness for leaders and identify and apply sustainable communication strategies that will build stronger relationships. By addressing self-awareness first, we help leaders to see themselves more clearly, where they are thriving, where they are challenged and where they are just adequate.

Real Coaching is a personalised coaching program that addresses the requirements of your role within the context of the team. We provide systems and models for you to implement suited to your leadership style and team’s situation.

We customise the Real Coaching program for every individual and can also offer group coaching options. The 12-month program establishes an individual Personal Leadership Development Plan. Monthly goals are agreed with ongoing quarterly reviews to enable measurable progression and identify blockages or blind spots.
