WHAT IS THE ROLE OF COACHING IN PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT?
It has been more prevalent as of late that employees perform better when they are made to feel valued and that the company appreciates their efforts.

Coaching will enable employees to feel much more heard and less like tasks are just being assigned to them like robots.
