Purpose #1 – Provides a Path for Personal Growth
We can think about this first formula, authored by Timothy Gallwey, the great human performance coach. He suggests that our performance (lower case p), is equal to our potential (P). In other words, we ought to perform/act very near our potential; except for the fact that we experience interference (I).
That interference can come in a number of ways. It could be literal interference, someone interrupts in the middle of our performance so that we don’t reach our potential. It could be interference from physical exhaustion or mental exhaustion. It could be interference from lack of character or development. At Griffin Hill, we think about that similar formula but we add in the notion of coaching technology and systems, so certainly our performance is equal to our potential minus interference.
All of that being true, we also believe that Griffin Hill coaching technology and Griffin Hill systems helps to elevate, compensate for interference. In other words, we can mitigate or eliminate interference by using good coaching technology and systems. So that’s how the Griffin Hill High Performance Journal becomes a technology to help support personal growth, highlighting the personal growth path.
