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.

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.

Within the first month of working with Evan, I was able to achieve measurable, meaningful results.

Specifically the awareness created by our conversations and his proven process resulted in taking responsibility for my priorities, my attitude and my emotional state. Just realizing what influences my decisions has helped improve them in the office, on the road and at home with family.

The most stunning evolution as I look back at the process is how several areas of frustration that dominated my thoughts a year ago have totally evaporated.

Far from being “fluffy” managerial one-liners or some “rah, rah” feel good motivation that fades quickly, Evan and I were able to integrate the coaching relationship directly into my business strategy, performance metrics and direct reports’ development plans.

Evan’s methodology is now central to how my team sets, achieves and reflects on goals. The results have been amazing — largest orders ever for the company, entirely new sources of revenue, increased resources allocated to our team, increased engagement by our customers. And it actually feels effortless, because it is fun.

Evan has been a great guide to me. At a time when I was at a crossroads professionally, I got connected to him through a common friend of ours and thereafter there was no looking back. Be it in dealing with under-performing subordinates or dealing with difficult customers, he taught me to look at situations from completely new perspectives. As a coach, he showed me the value of questioning techniques and the value of introspection.

His genial demeanour,  patient listening, and ability to make himself stand by me for support is what always gave me the courage to talk to and ask questions to him without any inhibition or discomfort. A discussion with him at any time made me feel rejuvenated and emerge from darkness to a point where I could see the end of the tunnel. What I liked the most about him is that he never undermined my apprehensions, always acknowledged my fear and yet made me see solutions to them through discussions with him.

Interacting with him is always fun, enjoyable, and fruitful.

I honestly thought I was in a pretty good place as a business leader – successful on the surface, all the best ingredients for happiness. Through thoughtful conversations, the right questions and meaningful coaching, Evan has helped me understand the obstacles I’m putting in front of myself – obstacles which are preventing me from living an abundant life. His style is non-judgmental but exact, warm but determined. Every session with Evan has helped me feel more self-aware and more deliberate in my actions in the world – he challenges me to think bigger, broader. Don’t be fooled – as in the traditional sense of “coach,” Evan doesn’t do the work for you, but instead helps you walk to the beginning of the staircase, take the first step and then is there with you as you climb. The experience has been a freeing if you will, an awakening – this from a woman who thought she was pretty darn awake already. My highest recommendation goes to Evan. Talk to him.
