Business Coaching to Correct Mistakes
Evaluation is Needed No Matter What the Outcome
Whether a project or other such task went well or badly, it is important to take the time to evaluate the results to determine exactly what went right and what could have gone better. However, most of the time this evaluation does not take place. This is because if things went well there will be a feeling that no evaluation is needed as there will be no mistakes to correct, and if things went badly then people will want to forget it and move on as quickly as possible.
Evaluating Negative Outcomes
It is important though that thorough evaluation takes place in both outcomes, whether good or bad. If the outcome has been negative and mistakes have been made, it is essential that lessons are learnt and control measures or safeguards are put into place to prevent such a situation from occurring again. Glossing over what happened and trying to forget about it whilst hoping it will not occur again is not really a viable option for any business who wishes to have a good reputation. Only by addressing the situation and taking positive action can the chances of a repeat be reduced.
Evaluating Positive Outcomes
Evaluation is not just limited to when there is a problem however. Just as it is imperative to determine what went wrong so that it can be avoided, it is also important to find out what went right so that it can be repeated in future and any steps that are taken in the future to try and improve the process do not jeopardise these beneficial components.
Performance Evaluation and Business Coaching
A good business coach will recognise the need for performing thorough evaluation on all actions to see where the person in question could improve, receiving positive feedback for what they did well and constructive suggestions for improvement in the areas that did not meet expectations.
