What is Group Coaching and Why Has it Become So Appealing?


 * We utilize the PERFORM ™ Model of Group Coaching which is an evidenced – based approach and reflective of research findings.

The Coach - coaches the group process integrating the dynamics of the group into the coaching approach

In Group Coaching the group is used as a vehicle to accomplish awareness and effectiveness within the individual. The coach acts as a facilitator of the process. This approach is referred to as a horizontal approach because each individual in the group is at a comparable-peer level and is generally not inter-dependent on goal connected by a leader or organization.

Group coaching advantages:

  • Participants can leverage the collective wisdom that exists in their group
  • It is cost effective
  • Power shifts in behavior often happen quicker *
  • Increased accountability among participants
  • Achievement of personal goals happen at an accelerated pace
  • Increase self-awareness

Most groups are a minimum of 3 participants to a maximum of 7 which still allows for individualized coaching
