The Benefits of Group Coaching
Group coaching is an affordable, highly effective technique to reinforce new learning for high-potential leaders and to support leadership development programs. Group sizes range from 5-15 leaders and depend upon a company’s cohort size for its high potential leaders. Studies show that learning is dramatically enhanced, retained, and applied when concepts are discussed and practiced over a period of time. Group coaching provides monthly reinforcement to “bake in” learning and development.
How do I Best Leverage Group Coaching?
Group coaching is particularly effective with cohorts of leaders who are engaged in a leadership development program or have attended a set of classes together. The group coach will act as both coach and facilitator in a monthly meeting lasting 2-3 hours where key learning objectives are reinforced and translated into practical approaches for participants. Learning is enhanced through the group interaction and discussion, blended with insightful and probing questions from the group coach.
Better Value – Great Solution
Group coaching can be an affordable alternative and supplement to individual coaching as the price per participant is lower than individual coaching sessions. Group coaching can be done both virtually for geographically dispersed teams or in person for same location participants. The group coaching process lasts between six and twelve months.
