“Mr Tang and I engaged Samuel for 360 Assessment & coaching program in 2015.
Mr. Tang was impressed with the program, as it helped him to discover areas of weakness and areas for improvement in the workplace. He was conscious of his weakness in the past but was thinking little of it. Some was his “blind spots”. He was glad to discover them via 360 degree feedback and able to set tangible target to improve. As part of company training programs, Beacon helped to enhance the soft skills required in our workplace. In addition, Mr. Tang also took some additional step to have individualized coaching program with Samuel. He found this essential for his career development.
We find coaching program is more effective than typical training programs. Typical training program is usually one-off activity and it is not easy to justify and measure if it has accomplished its purpose. Whereas a coaching program consists of multiple sessions which enables the individual to put his newly acquired skills into practice over a measured period of time. The coach is then able to review the progress and adjust the program accordingly.
As for my coaching, Samuel provided insight to different behaviours of my team members. The feedbacks gathered was very helpful and it assisted me to better understand my team’s concerns and to anticipate their response accordingly. It helps save time and effort in my daily operations.
I will definitely enrol many more of my team leads to the Coaching program in 2016.”
