About Build a Thriving Group Coaching Practice and Business

March - May 2024!

Group coaching is a vital tool for coaches, leaders, visionaries and practitioners because it is the wave of the future. National movement toward group coaching and group visits has been a trend the past few years, and the interest is growing. Group coaching allows us to reach more people for three reasons: it offers reduced participation costs, it creates an instant community of support around a common experience, and it decreases the time investment on the part of the coach. Translating coaching skills to hold space for multiple people while navigating the many moving parts that need to be tended to in a group requires skill and practice. This series will prepare you to design, market, and deliver your group coaching offering.
  • Describe and demonstrate key components of group coaching.
  • Practice skills and techniques that coaches need to develop to successfully design, market, and deliver group coaching.
  • Evaluate research and best practice regarding group coaching.
  • Identify basic and advanced facilitation techniques that support the delivery of group coaching.
  • Identify opportunities to apply this work in the field.

What Past Participants Have Said...

"This course was excellent in teaching and modeling facilitating a group coaching session. Teresa and Michele modeled how to facilitate well, as well as how to flawlessly co teach. The materials on best practices of leading group coaching were excellent – so much rich material. And, the experiential exercises helped solidify the learning. Learning from others on their ideas and plans for group coaching sessions added to the depth of learning. I feel ready to start my own group coaching sessions."
- Kris
"I got everything I was seeking and more from this program. Not only did I get all the information I need to move forward on creating my own group, but I also gained the confidence to do so and drew inspiration from having Michele and Theresa model excellent group coaching."
