Bringing people together to learn

Peer Coaching Circles are an integral part of leadership development today.  Leaders more than ever want and need a trusted network of peers to share common challenges, insights and creative problem-solving techniques.  These confidential small group circles become your personal brain trust while teaching you how to coach each other and achieve goals through an action learning process.

  • Allow you to freely discuss current problems and challenges

  • Build your leadership capacity around real-world issues

  • Support you in practicing new behaviors and mindsets

  • Provide you focused feedback for continued growth

  • Teach you effective coaching skills

  • Hold you accountable for moving forward

Please note: A required confidentiality agreement will need to be signed before start of program.
