What Is Performance Coaching?
A performance coach is someone who helps another achieve an ease, confidence and consistency of performance in their field of work.
My training background is in acting for the stage. In any coaching situation, the resources I draw on the most are ones based in storytelling theory and practice. Whether working with a group of child actors, a university professor, a professional singer or a corporate executive, the fundamentals of storytelling apply: breathe, move, surprise and connect. And in all things, be authentic.
By exploring language, breath, gesture, intonation, emotional clarity and narrative, the practice of storytelling lends itself to the discovery of authentic and dynamic communication.
