Updated: Feb 13

The presence of a coach during team building games can help raise the profile of a training or team building workshop as well as bring a number of additional values to the event organizer.

Let's start...


Presentation of the coach

It can take different forms and occur at different stages of the training process, depending on the organizer, the type of training and the trainer's preferences. Below are some possible stages at which a trainer can be presented to participants.


Before the start of the training

The training organizers can introduce the coach to the participants even before the training itself, e.g. 2 days before the training such information can be sent to the participants. This can include a brief introduction, a presentation of the coach's experience and qualifications, and an explanation of why he or she was chosen to conduct the training in question.


At the start of the training

The coach may be formally introduced to the participants at the very beginning of the training. This is when the coach usually introduces himself, shares a brief summary of his experience, and notes why he is competent in the topic.


During the training process

In some cases, the coach may also be introduced to participants during the training process, especially if the training includes several sessions led by different experts. Then the coach's presentation can be more detailed, taking into account a specific area of knowledge, experience or specialization.


Observer in incognito mode

Can be an effective strategy to obtain reliable information about the organization's operations, employees and corporate culture. Such a method can help the coach identify areas for improvement, understand the needs of employees and deliver a personalized and effective training program.



The role of the business coach during the workshop.

During the training, the coach focuses on the most important aspects of the participants' work.


Evaluating the effectiveness of teams

Observing the activities of teams allows assessment of their effectiveness. The coach can focus on identifying strengths and areas for improvement in teamwork.


Testing the level of employee engagement

By observing how employees react to various situations and tasks, the coach can assess the level of employee engagement. This can provide information about their motivation, job satisfaction and desire for development.

 

Identifying training needs

Observations can help the coach identify specific areas where employees may need additional support or training. This allows the training program to be tailored to the organization's real needs.

 

Analysis of the collected knowledge should lead to constructive actions and proposals that support the development of the organization and its employees.
