Performance Coaching Types

Business Coaching

At AOK Performance I have a unique personalised approach where I build strong relationships with clients based on a foundation of mutual trust and rapport. This is essential to enable clients be successful and achieve high performing targets. I work with clients to create a unique tailor-made performance framework that will guarantee performance improvement and achievement of results.


The coaching process is founded on current-state operations. I seek to understand the culture, strengths, challenges, opportunities, and threats that exist. From this position of understanding, I then collaborate with individuals and team members to flesh out the culture, optimize strengths, manage challenges, capitalize on opportunities and mitigate threats, while always keeping the overall vision, mission, values, and goals of the client in clear sight. Insights derived are shared with team leadership, and recommendations of tangible action plans are presented. AOK works alongside the client to ensure the “action plan” is optimized throughout the implementation phase.


With 30 plus years experience in business coupled with my coaching skills I’m in a position to facilitate lasting change resulting in increased rewards for clients.

Sports Coaching

At AOK Performance Coaching, I offer Sport specific customised tailor – made programs for professional and amateur athletes alike. Lack of confidence, low self-esteem or the wrong mindset often prevents athletes from reaching their full potential and achieving high performance.


I apply Performance Coaching techniques utilised by top elite athletes to demonstrate how to achieve outstanding results.

Some of the main areas of focus with athletes are as follows :

  • Working on a one-to-one basis to uncover the root cause of problems affecting performance.

  • Considering the specific athletic environment and helping implement changes that will unlock full potential.

  • Working with the athlete to develop confidence and self-esteem to ensure high performance

  • Developing clear and sustainable plans to ensure targets are met

  • Helping to develop focus and engagement for the full length of time on competition day

  • Working on emotional intelligence and how to control emotions on competition day

  • Dealing with high pressurised environments to ensure best performance during big sporting occasions

  • Helping athletes find their way back from injury and regain their strong mindset to achieve high performance

  • Providing one-to-one coaching of players and managers on decision-making, resilience, confidence, self-esteem, dealing with high pressure situations and overcoming mindsets that hold back athletic performance.

  • Team workshops to establish the fundamentals of a high performing environment, establish and communicate a clear set of goals and work on issues that affect success including poor communication between players and management.

  • Attending training sessions to see how players perform in a relaxed environment and helping players identify areas for improvement.

  • Working with teams to execute results by building alignment on team goals and high standards needed to achieve success

  • Building and leveraging relationships throughout the entire panel and sharing best practices to impact the teams success

  • Providing support on game day strategy and post match feedback recognising that teams and managements face huge pressures on competition day.

Personal Coaching

Performance coaching is:

  • A series of conversations designed and conducted to enhance someone's well being or performance.

  • A process that both parties enter into willingly with clear expectations and agreements on how the process will work.

  • A relationship, or partnership, that allows anything to be asked, said or considered.

  • Based on the premise that performance in any field can be enhanced by creating a partnership and setting aside time to explore in conversation how performance might be taken to a new level.


Performance coaching can be described as a series of guided conversations that enable the “coachee” to discover and implement personal solutions to challenging issues or areas of performance. These solutions, because they are intrinsic to the “coachee,” are more likely to succeed and endure than solutions imposed externally.


Coaching is not...

  • Giving advice, being the expert or having the answers

Coaching is about....
