How APS Performance Coaching Works

Not all coaching platforms are created equally. Discover how APS coaching is unmatched.

Holistic performance coaching from APS

APS performance coaching endorses a theory of change that suggests the ‘top down’ approach, while a necessary component to change, is slow and inefficient on it’s own. Equally, a ’bottom up’ method, while energetic is too often chaotic in isolation.

APS performance coaching aims to influence multiple levels of the organisation within the contracted period. We work one-to-one with senior and soon-to-be-senior executives, in small-group coaching sessions with traditional and non-traditional high-potential candidates and new intake, and with those not yet eligible for coaching, via the group seminars and the ‘open table’ lunch sessions.

APS Coaches

APS coaches are collaborative but challenging, demanding but supportive coach mentors who will contract with new clients exactly what is expected from all parties. This includes the tangible personal, professional, and organisational development and performance outcomes desired by the end of the six-month term. Our coaches will help you develop the skill to source solutions to your challenges from within.
