Group Coaching

Group Coaching: Cognitive CoachingSM for Systems Impact

Prerequisite: Cognitive Coaching Foundation Seminar®

Description: Cognitive CoachingSM was developed as a means to support individuals. As knowledge of that process developed, questions arose about how the same knowledge, skills, and tools might be applied with groups and organizations. Given the shortage of time in schools, it makes sense to think about group and organizational applications of coaching. This one-day training will offer thinking around how group coaching differs from facilitation and individual coaching. Group coaching capabilities will be described as a framework for thinking about how small group coaching skills build on individual coaching skills. Applications and possibilities for the impact of group coaching will be explored. Principles and practices for using Cognitive CoachingSM as a tool for developing collaborative groups will be presented.
