Performance coaching could play a key role in boosting workplace productivity and reducing employee dissatisfaction, claims an expert.
Taking a threat approach to staff could result in workers who are defensive and unmotivated, but adopting a more positive coaching style could lead to more open-minded and connected workers.
“If we’re going to be influencing performance, we need to recognise that a positive working environment is really important,” explained Ms. Hansen.
One way could be to have an increased number of one-to-one sessions, so that it is easier to praise and reward employees who have performed well rather than wait for annual appraisals.
A recent study by the Australian School of Business looked at the views of over 5,000 executives and discovered in high-performing companies, employees often feel more valued and optimistic, while low-performing workplaces leads to staff identifying more with feelings of depression, fear and anxiety.
