We simplify coaching. And
we’ve proven that simple works.
Joy Van Skiver, founder and president, has established a strong reputation as a dynamic facilitator and an astute consultant. The author of three books, Joy is passionate about her work. It’s quite common to hear her say, “I love what I do!”
How We Started
The POWERformance Group grew out of years of working with managers on communication skills. We discovered a huge gap between perception and reality — managers thought they were coaching, but:
Their coaching comments were vague, superficial, lacking in both direction and motivation.
Too often their focus was what’s wrong but no suggestion for fixing it.
Or, the other extreme — too much praise and nothing to encourage growth.
They were recapping the past with zero emphasis on the future.
Only about 20% of managers were hitting the mark of meaningful coaching.
That’s why we created what we call a coaching language.
