Day 3 of our 12 Days of Coaching resources is:
Playing Cards For Happy Managers & Happier Employees
Today’s coaching resource is designed to assist team leaders and managers in business.
The resource is a set of playing cards with a difference. At first glance you will see that the 52 cards have the traditional clubs, spades, hearts and diamonds. Each card also contains coaching style questions following a specific theme, depending upon the suite of that card, all important in people management.
Each set consists of 52 cards, a Joker and two explanatory cards. They are currently available in English, German and Dutch, and further languages are available on request.
The design of this resource means that you have lots of flexibility about how you can use them to create enthusiastic, high-performing and engaged teams. Just some of the ways that you could use these cards:
Pick a random card to act as a catalyst in a meeting when energy and inspiration is low
New managers can use the cards to identify areas to strengthen and take action accordingly.
Generate discussion points in team meetings with each member randomly selecting a card – allow the team to learn from each other and their experiences.
A fun game in a training environment allowing enlightening discussions in a gentle manner
If you are reading this blog and have got this far through this post I suspect I don’t need to tell you the benefits of such coaching style questions or the positive impact that enthusiastic, high performing and energised teams can have for a business.
