ProReal offers people a tool to create a 3D visual representation of their world, or a specific situation, and then explain it to others through story, metaphor, symbols and social mapping. Most communication in management, coaching and therapy has historically been through the written or verbal word, yet many people think, create and remember in pictures. The interactive landscape can be viewed from the creator’s perspective or that of any other individuals represented there. You can even fly over the scene to gain a bird’s eye view. It can be shared with others – a coach, their manager, a team or a business consultant – to offer insight and stimulate conversation. Together, individuals and their colleagues or advisors can use the scenario to clarify understanding, share ideas, identify problems and consider options for change and development. The software is being actively used for a range of applications including remote coaching, employee engagement, leadership development and counselling and therapy support.
MentorMaster/CoachMaster is the world’s first tool to facilitate real time mentoring and coaching for individuals and teams. The software works by providing a structure for the mentoring/coaching discussion based on the stage of relationship or the type of issue. There are currently four mentoring question sets and 18 for different types of coaching situations. The software is completely browser based, secure, can easily be translated into different languages or modified to deal with cultural or organisationally specific issues. Organisations can also create processes for their own coaches and mentors. Using the built in questions and structure a mentor or coach can guide an individual or a team through all the stages of a learning discussion to a conclusion. CoachMaster™ supports text, phone video or face to face interactions and provides reports on the number, timings and participants in sessions while summaries are automatically emailed to all participants. It is a GPS for mentoring and coaching.
