The world today has become much too complex for leaders to have all the answers. To cope with this reality, more and more companies are investing in training their leaders as coaches. It is now considered as a skill that good managers at all levels need to develop and deploy. An effective manager-as-coach asks questions instead of providing answers, supports employees instead of judging them, and facilitates their development instead of dictating what has to be done.
FocusU in association with KNOLSKAPE brings The Coaching Simulation which is designed to help managers learn the essentials of coaching, motivate the team, and master the nuances of dealing with the emotions of team members. It puts the participants in the role of a Sales Manager responsible for coaching the team to improve performance and meet revenue targets. The Manager learns to leverage the GROW methodology for conversations with his team members.
By enabling participants to experience and work through such challenges which are as close to real life as possible, the simulation analytics and debrief sessions (optional) by the facilitators help participants in deriving great insight into the skill of coaching.
The simulation throws up useful analytics for individual participants that includes:
• Key Competency
• Coaching Readiness
• GROW Accuracy
• Performance Trend
