How does a coaching session work:
Our coaches will provide you with a questionnaire to fill out before your first meeting. These questions are designed to help you think about what it is you want to work in in your professional and personal life and what you feel is currently holding you back. It’s okay if you don’t have all the answers, as your coach can help you figure them out.
Most personal coaching sessions will last from 45 minutes up to an hour. The length of your coaching session will vary depending on your coach. During your session, you and your coach will speak about what has happened since your last meeting and any goals you would like to set yourself for the upcoming period of time until you talk again.
As you speak, your personal coach will be able to give offer ideas and provide you with a number of resources you can use to help you achieve the next step of your plan. Your coach will use approaches and techniques that will be most effective in helping you get what you want.
What is Group Coaching:
Group coaching clients benefit from the peer learning with others, commonly referred to as the collective wisdom of the group. This peer learning is often as important as the interaction with the coach. Many clients find the process “less on the spot”, giving them more time to reflect and integrate their insights. Masterful group coaches step back and create a strong process framework for the coaching to emerge from.
Coaches may find that group coaching is a powerful way to leverage their time and resources, enabling them to work with more clients over less time, potentially at a lower price point per person.
Organizations may find benefit due to the scalable nature of the process, opening up communication between silos or group members in different parts of the organization. Over time these relationships create a valuable network across an organization. Group coaching can also be positioned as a training follow-on, supporting learners to with the transfer and application of their learning, creating an on-going accountability structure. Group coaching is an on-going conversation, which supports change over time.
What group coaching looks like:
Group coaching is taking many forms globally, given that it is driven and shaped by the various needs of different client groups. The group coaching conversation can feel “wide and broad” rather than the deep, deep dive of an individual coaching conversation.
Example #1: Group coaching for new managers as a follow-on to leadership training, with conversations occurring monthly over a year.
Example #2: A three month bi-weekly program offered virtually (by zoom or phone) for team leader, with a mix of small group and individual coaching calls.
