This session will show participants how to conduct a group coaching session. The participants will experience and practice group coaching in small/breakout groups during this session followed by a debrief of the experience. At the end, a Q&A session opportunity will be available for participants.

A handout featuring Key factors for consideration and resources for conducting a group coaching session will be given to participants and the ICF Core Competencies are identified in the process.

Amy will introduce three “secrets” of group coaching. Essentially, that:
•  Coaches experienced in 1:1 coaching have already developed the competencies of coaching that (must) transfer to group coaching.
•  Group coaching has a different ‘feel’ and flow, which requires that the coach prepare for a tight focus, remain fully focused on the group, and remain aware of the needs and experience of each individual in the group, and
•  Because group process includes a ‘storming’ phase, a conflict process is necessary.

The learning objectives of this presentation are:
•  Help those participants who are already conducting group or team coaching, her intention is to give participants one new idea to try the next time they conduct a group coaching session.
•  Show those who have not done any group coaching, her intention is to give participants enough of an overview so they will be confident enough to experiment running a session when they have an opportunity to do so.
