The Vital Learning Pocket Coach™ for Supervisors provides just-in-time review of key skills that every supervisor needs to be successful in the interpersonal side of their role. Content for each of the 12 topics covered in this mobile learning application are based on the classroom courses of the same names from Vital Learning’s Leadership Series™. Although the primary intent of this application is to reinforce the classroom learning, enough content is provided to help you develop your basic supervisory skills without the classroom experience, as well as to enhance skills you already have.
Each topic includes the following:
• An overview of the skill and why it is important to master
• A quick summary of the Skill Points to master on the topic
• A video modeling of the Skill Points
• A self-assessment, which can be reviewed after exercising the skill in order to facilitate continuous improvement
Vital Learning’s Leadership Series™ training seminars will put your organization’s leaders at the head of the class. As an industry leader in the management training marketplace, Vital Learning has you covered — from the basics of management and effective communication to resolving workplace conflicts, motivating team members and successfully leading projects.
Just enough, Just in time!
I recently returned from the ASTD conference where I sat in on a number of sessions on mobile learning and how to use this approach for performance support. This app is right on! Not only will it support me when I need a quick review on skill points presented in the classroom session, but it also provides enough information to get me going in the right direction on those topics I haven't yet worked on in the classroom. Definitely a "pocket coach" on those day-to-day skills needed to effectively supervise and manage team members whether or not you have had the opportunity to experience the classroom or online course offered by Vital Learning.
The video models are short and to the point and the assessments provide a great briefing for a before or after review of how to deploy each skill. Additionally, if you are responsible for the development of a team leader or supervisor, this would be a great tool to use as you coach that person and provide reinforcement for the training they received in the Vital Learning curriculum.
Excellent step by step skill builder
These leadership skill steps are great. Why? Because they work!
No vague theory here, just real & actionable step by step tools to help leaders of all levels be more effective in every day, in sometimes sensitive situations. This app is gr8 by itself (and a gr8 add-on for those using these materials in a leadership dev program) because u can review video examples & skill steps when u need them ( like right before a review session with someone who's been a challenge to communicate with...)
If u use the skill steps I promise your meeting will go better. I know because I've used them, and as a teacher of this material, I've seen a hundred or more other leaders get better at leading, communicating & engaging others with these tools. They work.
Get this app, study the steps, use them and you'll create empowering & effective relationships...
Excellent use of mobile learning
This app does a great job of enforcing learning with easy to navigate menus and helpful videos. Be forewarned that because of the use of videos, the app takes a whole to download (up to five minutes or so over broadband). Other than that, the app is a valuable resource for anyone looking for just in time training on their iPhone.
