Most importantly, your Peer Coach provides you with a place for a you to ask sensitive questions and suggest tips for being successful at BST.

Ongoing, continuous Coaching and Feedback

BST strives to build a high-performing, coaching and development culture where all employees are aligned to BST’s strategic goals and understand what it takes to be successful in their current role, and how to successfully progress throughout their career.

 

Coaching, in its simplest form, means to train, tutor or give instruction. It is an excellent skill that can be used to enhance growth and performance, as well as promote individual responsibility and accountability. Performance coaching can help identify an employee's growth, as well as help plan and develop new skills.

 

Feedback is the primary tool used to provide employees with information and guidance. Feedback consists of two-way communication. It is critical to the success of BST’s Performance Development Model and the development of our talent.
