Coaching in Writing

Welcome to my POWERformance blog, a chance to share what I’ve learned as best practices for all performance-related writing.


In my consulting work with corporations for more than 25 years, I’ve discovered that writing about performance is one of the biggest challenges managers face.


Performance Reviews

Everybody hates them. They take too much time.


Development Plans

High anxiety levels. Low expectations.


Coaching Emails or Frequent Follow Ups

Preaching. Lecturing. Tone.


A manager’s coaching-in-writing responsibility, no matter what form the message takes, requires far more than being clear and concise. I’ll be addressing that in future blogs and talking about alternatives to what you’ve seen as standards in the past.


If there’s something in particular you’d like me to address, please let me know: joy.vanskiver@powerformance.com.
