What this course is about

Coaching circles combine the power of action learning and integral development to support leaders in creatively tackling the challenges they face while practicing the coaching skills they need on the job. Coaching circles are typically composed of a small group of people, managers or leaders who meet at regular intervals. During these meetings, each person successively uses their own airtime to present their issue or challenge and to receive coaching from the rest of the group. The role of the learning coach is to create an environment where everyone in the group benefits from this interaction through the powerful new actions they identify in relation to their challenge, the coaching skills they develop and the practical insights they take back to their job.

This course is designed for those who wish to create coaching circles and lead them effectively as Facilitator-coaches.

The course presents the core concepts underlying coaching circles. It offers key distinctions regarding the role of the Facilitator-coach throughout all phases in the life of a coaching circle. Finally, the course provides tips, tools and practices to support Facilitator-coaches in the different situations they will encounter when leading a group.
