1. What is “High-Performance Coaching”?
We define it as “succeeding beyond standard norms consistently over the long-term.”
So, to coach someone to high performance in their life means to help them go further than they have before—beyond the norm of their typical results and life experience—and then to help them continuously grow and succeed.
Brendon adds, “Besides that textbook definition, high performance is really a flow and a feeling. It’s the ongoing feeling of full engagement, joy and confidence that comes from consistently living from your best self. That’s the three senses of high performance: engagement, joy and confidence.”
2. What do Certified High -Performance Coaches actually do?
CHPCs help clients reach high performance in six main areas of life—psychology, physiology, productivity, people, purpose, and presence. This is an important distinction. Our approach is a holistic one—far more encompassing than just helping a client reach one specific goal like an accountability coach might. Clients don’t want to just hit a small set of goals anymore. They want total life transformation and alignment. They want to know they’re just as high performing at home as at work. CHPCs deliver coaching through 60- minute sessions, delivered either one-on-one in person or on the phone, or in groups via webinars or meet -ups. Coaches are trained to ask penetrating questions and deliver emotionally engaging sessions that help clients discover deep insights and major breakthroughs. Coaches follow a proven plan to help others accelerate their growth
3. How is CHPC different from regular coaching?
Most life coaches are trained only to elicit the client’s goals, then to work with the client to reach those goals. Their typical session with a client is very similar, in which the coach asks the client, “So what are you working on? What’s holding you back? Let’s talk that through.” Unfortunately, this becomes repetitive for the client (and very boring for high-achieving clients).
CHPC is completely different. The larger outcome, even beyond any goal of the client, is to help the client reach higher performance in all areas of their life. There is a set of specific questions that are followed in each unique session. And each session also has a training component, where the CHPC teaches the client a new habit, tool or concept that furthers their education and growth in that area. In short, there is a curriculum in CHPC, a true roadmap for progress that allows the coach and client to consistently feel that each session is adding value and advancing the client in life no matter their goal.
