PART 3: PERFORMANCE
Don’t leave performance to chance, plan for peak performance
Peak Performance Framework
Measure your team against six key performance areas that are crucial for peak-performance, and then design real-world strategies to lift performance where needed.

Navigate and lead your team through times of change by facilitating the ‘Known Unknowns’ exercise. Establish common knowledge and set actions to get through change and safeguard performance.
Innovation Coaching Tools
Be deliberate about innovation and gain tools to unfold your thinking to use as a team and also 1-2-1.
