Simulation-Based Coaching Toolkit for Fundraisers

Build skills through video replay and group feedback

Critical tools to plan and conduct a Simulation-Based Coaching Session aimed to improve frontline fundraiser performance.

Frontline fundraisers often meet with donors one-on-one and behind closed doors. A simulation-based coaching session can be a valuable opportunity to receive feedback, learn from the experience of other fundraisers, and engage in self-assessment and reflection.

Development leaders can use simulation-based coaching to:

  • Help fundraisers better understand their strengths and areas for improvement
  • Provide peers a forum to share feedback with colleagues on situations they typically wouldn't witness
  • Allow fundraisers to see their own performance through video replay

This toolkit provides everything you need to lead a two-day simulation-based coaching session with your fundraisers. The toolkit is designed to be used with the Simulation Based Coaching Scenario Library and the Day One Introductory Presentation.

The toolkit contains guides, templates, talking points, and more. Each tool falls into one of three distinct categories:
