Group Coaching, Workshops and Speaking engagements

Group coaching and workshops provide an effective, cost-efficient and scalable methodology to further leadership capabilities within an organization. All our workshops and group coaching engagements are custom designed, and often co-created with senior leadership or the Human Resources Department, to meet your company’s needs. We believe that open dialogue and experiential learning in a group setting around topics of professional development is highly effective and enhances relationships, positively impacting an organization’s culture and effectiveness.

Group Coaching

Group Coaching typically consists of a small number of participants who meet on a regular basis to engage in and learn about a diverse range of professional development topics. Participants are brought together based on certain commonalities, such as managers who are on-boarding, leaders who have recently been promoted to a new role or staff members with a similar functional role divided over several offices. The process takes place under the expert guidance of a coach, who steers the conversation for optimum learning, stimulating a growth mindset and productive risk taking.

Group coaching brings the coaching conversation into a small group context, which delivers an intimate conversation space, focused on goal setting, deepening awareness around key issues, taking action, receiving feedback and creating accountability from peers and the coach.

Participants benefit from peer learning and the “collective wisdom” of the group. This setting provides time to reflect, further strategic thinking, create new learning and integrate insights. Frequently deep relationships develop among participants, increasing the trust between members within the organization, creating valuable networks and building a stronger culture throughout the entire company.


Workshops can be stand-on- its-own learning environments ranging from a 2 – 3 hour session, a full day, or spread out overall several consecutive days. Depending on the company objectives, we also develop series of workshops interspersed over a broader time interval.
