Benefits of Group Coaching
Updated: Jun 28, 2022
What is Group Coaching?
Group coaching is quickly becoming one of the most popular coaching methods due to its ability to connect employees and bring different viewpoints, insights, and knowledge to light. By bringing employees in from various levels and departments we create learning and growth opportunities that help employees align and collaborate on specific challenges and goals. Unlike traditional training, group coaching creates a safe environment for discussion, reflection, and peer learning that has demonstrated long-term impact.

The benefits of group coaching include:

What can I expect from a session?
All sessions will be led by a certified Stride Coach. The coach will set the stage for the group to grow and learn together, giving employees dedicated time to practice and problem solve as a group. Each session will also have a dedicated Spotlight leader responsible for giving an overview of a challenge they’re facing and their desired outcome for the conversation (topics can be assigned from People team). The group will explore the challenge in greater detail, asking questions and providing thought-provoking feedback to help the leader come up with actionable next steps. At the conclusion of each session, leaders will share one insight that they will apply to their leadership practices.
