Positive, Proactive
Performance Reviews

Designed to improve sporting results


In the corporate sector, more than 90% of private organizations have a performance appraisal system in place because they are effective in developing greater performance.

And sport should be no different.

Performance reviews are designed to increase productivity and enhance results. In the sporting world, however, traditional methods of performance review which may focus on quantitative elements such as the number of goals scored or championships won, can easily become too single focused or a negative rather than constructive process.

When asked, many coaches, administrators and athletes feel their existing performance review processes are inconsistent and ineffective which can have a direct impact on results. Performance reviews are vital to improve sporting outcomes, but only if the execution is right.

The Importance of Performance Reviews in Sport

It's common in sport for performance to be judged by whether your contract is renewed or cancelled.

When a sporting performance is below par or expectation, it is easy to blame individuals or some take the approach to change the equipment or training methods, which doesn’t guarantee results and can leave many people demotivated and doubting their ability. 

For captains and coaches and teams, there is more to understanding performance than a win-loss record.

The performance of sports professionals is more than just financial or numerical data. While it’s easy to gauge success on these quantitative measures, it’s not just about what is achieved, it’s how people achieve that’s important.

Rather than facilities and equipment, a sporting organization’s most important asset, and scarcest resource, is its people. We need to ensure we are looking after them, providing development opportunities and providing constructive feedback on their performance. Performance Reviews are about looking forward and devising plans for ongoing, future success. Importantly, they are an opportunity to review and reward what is going well, as well as identifying areas for improvement.

From the comments we hear, in sports organizations, performance reviews are often poorly managed or put in the too-hard basket. And while your initial reaction may be to cringe at the thought, we can help make your end of year or season review a positive and valuable experience.
