Performance standards for high performing individuals

There are two key elements to setting performance standards. You need to define, communicate and gain commitment to both of these if you want to develop a high performing coachee.

We refer to these elements as the Qual/Quan mix. They include both qualitative and quantitative performance standards, relating to coachee’s role.

Performance standards

Quality and quantity

  • The qualitative standards (skills and knowledge), that define expected working practice.
  • The quantitative standards (normally expressed as KPIs and personal targets/objectives) that describe what performance or activity levels you expect someone to achieve.

These elements will have to be demonstrably fair, achievable and capable of measurement for a coachee to commit to them.
