Strength in Numbers: Why Group Coaching Works
with Sean Olson
Friday, May 20, 2016
More and more organizations are using group coaching as a tool to develop their employees. Group coaching can be used to support employees in a leadership development program, peers who are going through a shared experience (e.g., newly promoted managers), employees who need to build broader and more diverse internal networks, or individuals from the same work group or function who are trying to become a high-performing team. This approach provides an opportunity for a small group of individuals (typically around five to eight) to benefit from the guidance and support of a professional coach while also learning from one another.
In this session we’ll share when group coaching tends to work best, how group coaching should be structured, considerations for creating ownership, and tips to ensure group coaching has a lasting impact.
