Performance Coaching in Aviation Operations & Maintenance

Part CAMO HFWhat is a Performance Coach?

First, to consider the role of Leaders & Managers, Leaders typically share their visions and drive the business process to reach the goal whilst Managers strive to deliver results by exerting controls within an organisational business structure and within an agreed budget.

The role of a “Performance Coach” is to engage with the client and encourage the client to reach a conclusion without the coach providing your interpretation of events or giving directions. The whole point of coaching is for the client to reach their own conclusions and understandings and to determine their own actions.

So we could say that a coach’s role is to gently guide prompt their client’s thinking without being either judgmental or presenting any prejudice. Coaching can easily become a part of organisational culture & behaviour including team briefings/meetings as well as encourage such activities as a function of, individual development and customer-focused activities.
