Given the issues that show up while collaborating on projects, especially across groups of different departments or organizations, Companies are establishing a culture of peer/team coaching and we invite you to learn about this industry movement! Being part of a peer coaching group will mitigate and remove obstacles that come in the way of successful cooperation, with positive results for you, your team and the work that needs to be done.

Team Coaching is a process in the form of dialogue that leverages insights and experiences of group members to attain personal and professional growth and team success. Join us to learn this unique model of coaching.

Let’s look at team (or peer) coaching as a process for enabling two or more people to collaborate in helping one another to become more successful in their work, project delivery and cross team collaboration. It’s also a way to share plans and progress to overcome obstacles and resolve problems by creating a culture of influence through a solution-focused process.

Join us to learn the basic skills on how team coaching groups operate. You’ll learn and practice:

·          Guidelines on being a coach and coachee

·          Active listening skills and how to ask open ended, provocative questions

·          Advocacy: Coaching skills, not advising

·          Understand limiting beliefs

·          Process to establish goals, understand restrictions, create opportunities, and an action plan

Energy Leadership Index: In addition, you’ll also learn about the Energy Leadership Index. The ELI ties well with group/peer coaching as it is a one-of-a-kind assessment that enables leaders to hold up mirrors to their perceptions, attitudes, behaviors and overall leadership capabilities. The ELI provides a baseline for your current level of awareness, performance, and effectiveness. With this assessment, you’ll understand how you show up at work and how it relates to leadership excellence. You’ll then understand how it can help you shift your attitude to present yourself in a way that inspires greatness in others and what skills will get you there.
