There are four main goals:

  1. It is important to help the client to understand and remember the information, which is gathered to achieve their goals.
  2. The client is encouraged to develop and recognize a more useful mindset.
  3. The surrounding is of importance. To create a strong and supporting surrounding, which promote their performance positively, is necessary.
  4. The base of everything is to support the client’s behavior, practices, and skills, which are crucial for them and will lead them toward achieving their goals.

Performance coaching can include health and recovery supporting activities that promote the performance in the long term and avoid negative consequences like burn-out or unhappiness. If the coaching focuses purely on professional performance the general term is executive coaching.
