About Our Performance Coaching

Our performance coaching helps leaders and teams navigate human and organizational dynamics to effectively increase their positive contribution and performance. We work with individuals and groups to identify their challenges. Based on clear, actionable plans, we move them past the issues interfering with their success.

Authentic Interactions Leveraging Outcomes

Why Performance Coaching?

Here is Our Story

S.Decker Consulting, LLC was founded to focus on performance coaching after hearing similar concerns from professionals and their teams about all-too-common challenges that interfere with collaboration, leadership, and ultimately performance.

While helping individuals and teams, we have realized the possibilities that arise from performance coaching to trigger the transformative journey that leverages effective high-functioning, collaborative teams and authentic, inspiring leaders.

Authentic Interactions Leveraging Outcomes

Moving from “good” to “great” takes effort, persistence, insights, and an actionable plan. Therefore, we have developed our performance coaching approach to help leaders and teams raise the bar. We help them create a common approach that reinforces collaboration, helps them break down paradigms, and maintains work cultures where the human aspect does not interfere with collective and individual performance.

Based on real-life professional experiences, we know how organizations and humans function, how challenges can interfere with life at work, and how their strengths, aspirations, and conflicts can impact their roles.

A client takes on a new promotion, in a completely new role. He had some early concerns
about the transition and was uncomfortable early on

Client is an seasoned senior leader at a major company; with unquestioned expertise in her field

While her execution was strong, other leaders within the company failed to fully embrace or understand her strategic direction

Client was unhappy in the position and job, and wanted to make a change, but didn’t want to jump at the first thing that came along. In the past she had switched jobs only to inevitably end up in a situation where she wasn’t completely fulfilled. She was strongest when her creative side and intuition were put to use, but often found herself taking a safer, more conservative approach.
