Why Coaching and Counseling?
Coaching and counseling is a must have skill for Managers/Supervisors / Team Leaders in this VUCA era. According to Wikipedia, VUCA stands for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
The deeper meaning of each element of VUCA serves to enhance the strategic significance of VUCA foresight and insight as well as the behavior of groups and individuals in organizations. It discusses systemic failures and behavioral failures, which are characteristic of organizational failure.
- V = Volatility. The nature and dynamics of change, and the nature and speed of change forces and change catalysts.
- U = Uncertainty. The lack of predictability, the prospects for surprise, and the sense of awareness and understanding of issues and events.
- C = Complexity. The multiplex of forces, the confounding of issues, no cause-and-effect chain and confusion that surrounds organization.
- A = Ambiguity. The haziness of reality, the potential for misreads, and the mixed meanings of conditions; cause-and-effect confusion.
These elements present the context in which organizations view their current and future state. They present boundaries for planning and policy management. They come together in ways that either confound decisions or sharpen the capacity to look ahead, plan ahead and move ahead. VUCA sets the stage for managing and leading.
The particular meaning and relevance of VUCA often relates to how people view the conditions under which they make decisions, plan forward, manage risks, foster change and solve problems. In general, the premises of VUCA tend to shape an organization’s capacity to:
- Anticipate the Issues that Shape
- Understand the Consequences of Issues and Actions
- Appreciate the Interdependence of Variables
- Prepare for Alternative Realities and Challenges
- Interpret and Address Relevant Opportunities
For most contemporary organizations – business, the military, education, government and others – VUCA is a practical code for awareness and readiness. Beyond the simple acronym is a body of knowledge that deals with learning models for VUCA preparedness, anticipation, evolution and intervention.
Especially In Indonesia, VUCA comes with AFTA, MEA, ICTA and Foreign Workers Issue.
Why Leaders need Coaching and Counseling?
According to Varga, Coaching and counseling both play important and valuable roles in life in general, but also in business. Managers and supervisors need to be equipped to look both at “what has happened so far” as well as “what we want to happen next”, and confidently and clearly guide others along those paths to clarity and success.
Managers and supervisors must be trained on the best communication practice skills and techniques for having difficult conversations early and with ease, to give useful and tangible feedback and create a meaningful action plan that facilitates correction and supports the team member’s development – all while still meaningfully developing rapport with the employee. This isn’t always an easy task, because every team member is so different and brings a different set of issues and unique circumstances to the table.
A good leader and manager must have the skills to know how to read others, and adjust the coaching style to be able to reach any individual. Ensuring your leaders are trained in the communication techniques that will increase the understanding and impact of information for all team members will make the task much easier and successful for everyone.
