According to Gallup, only 31.5% of U.S. workers report feeling engaged at work. About 51% report feeling not engaged in their jobs while 17.5 felt actively disengaged.
Workers are becoming less productive and enthusiastic about going to work in the morning. What if there was a way to change our attitudes about work and to improve our performance?
Have you thought about hiring a performance coach?
A performance coach can help you unlock your potential and stop limiting yourself. You can find what motivates you and become stronger at work and in all aspects of life.
Read on for five reasons why you should consider hiring a performance coach.
1. Learn More About Yourself
A performance coach can help you learn more about yourself. You can identify your strengths and learn how to use them to improve your performance at work.
Similarly, you can identify your weaknesses. Instead of allowing your weak points to bring you down, you and your coach can work on ways to improve them.
2. Increase Your Productivity
Productivity is on the decline for workers. However, once you get a better understanding of yourself, you can learn how to manage your time and work more efficiently.
As performance coach Mike Basevic demonstrates, he wants to inspire others to believe in themselves and provide them with the tools to remain focused and achieve their goals.
A performance coach can help you learn what obstacles are in your way and how you can overcome them to increase productivity.
You and your coach can do this by setting mini-goals to accomplish. Each of these goals can lead up to a major overall goal. By checking in with your coach regularly, you can discuss your progress and ways to reach your next goal.
3. Improved Relationship With Your Coworkers
A performance coach can help you work better with coworkers. If you get into a disagreement, you can learn the tools to voice your opinion without being abrasive.
If you’re normally reserved, you can gain the confidence to approach others when you need help or when you want to talk about a current project.
Moreover, if you are more productive, you can spread that positive vibe to others, making you more enjoyable to be around.
4. Unbiased Mentor
A performance coach can be an unbiased, positive presence in your life. They won’t get sucked into the latest office gossip. Their only goal is to help you help yourself.
5. Encourage You to Take Action
How many times do you have an innovative idea during a meeting but decided to remain quiet rather than speak up? How many times a day do you wish you would take action?
A performance coach can spur you to take action and achieve your goals. You’ll learn that it’s okay to stumble along the way, as long as you learn and grow in the process.
Choosing a Performance Coach
Many coaches offer free introductory sessions. You can schedule a session and see if you and the performance coach are a good fit.
During your first talk, you can see if their ideology matches with yours. You can also see if they listen to you and to your concerns.
