Learning Team Coach
KEY OBJECTIVES & RESPONSIBILITIES
VISION Learning Teams is a systematic programme for transforming customers into promoters. The Learning Teams Coach designs a programme which establishes a powerful, trackable index that measures the promoter strength of the customer base and, using Commitment based Management, transforms customer-facing teams into promoter creators. VISION Learning Team Coaches are assigned a number of people on each project who participate in learning team sessions, and are responsible for the transformation of team members.
Learning Teams Coaches excel in listening for difference (for the unexpected) and taking it seriously, in holding open questions until discussion yields useful results, in identifying and modifying group moods, at stimulating candid discussion, and challenging others to move out of their comfort zones.
