Hi, I’m Ramkumar, I coach CEOs and senior management professionals and I try to make the coaching engagement as interesting and engaging as possible.
And one of the things that I always use in coaching engagements is the help of technology. Technology helps me make the whole coaching engagement much better, much more effective. Especially because these are very senior people, and you may need multiple modes of communication or touch points with them.
And this is exactly where Simply.Coach helps me a lot. But before Simply.Coach came into existence, I used to use, you know, starting from paper and pen to google docs, excel sheets, to CRM tools, you know, name it and I was using all these tools to manage my coaching engagement, to make it more interesting etc.
Then landed Simply.Coach! I’ve been a very early customer of theirs, you know, I’ve had the privilege of using the tool right from, almost the first version when it came out and it’s been a wonderful journey with them. We started with very basic features, but then they’ve been very very quick to add new features. Some of the very prominent features that really help me are private journal that I use to document all my coaching sessions, the digital tools section, which I use to create N number of tools.
Simply.Coach gives you lots of templates and tools themselves, but it also allows you to customize the digital tools based on your requirement. That is something I use a lot. Then, you know, setting up action items through the actions feature, gently nudging your coachees to complete action items! Lots of features are there which I use.
There are some features that I haven’t explored yet like the coaching journey, the contract management piece etc., which I would definitely like to explore in the coming days.
I would just like to say that they have a wonderful team. I have been interacting with Ram, Venkat and Kiran right from the very early days and they’ve been very supportive and helpful. You know anytime, I ping them and not just them, even on Simply.Coach website, they work through Intercom and Chirag or anybody else who responds there on the site, they’re very very receptive, they respond very very effectively.
So, hats off to Simply.Coach! They’ve had a wonderful beginning, and brilliant initial years, I wish them a lot of success in their journey.
