People often take the thoughts they think as the “right” ideas, and press for their choices. Usually, we believe in our own views and want them to prevail.
A group coaching session (no more than 15 people) could be an opportunity to explore beyond individual points of view and desired outcomes. As dialogue proceeds, the coach continually operates as a mediator and holds a ‘larger point of view’ to move the group closer to their richest values and possibilities.
Suddenly, with various people, ideas begin to flow and people’s perspectives shifted. By holding the space for each member of the group, we are encouraging movements in multiple directions. As we hold aims of ‘whole outcome thinking‘, more and more vision choices can be joined together and explored. New ideas tend to show up everywhere and each contribution might hold the solution to the challenge.
In a group coaching setting, individuals will be working on their own set of goals, and there may also be a shared series of goals.
Many clients find the process of the group coaching to be “less on the spot”, giving them more time to reflect and offering an affordable way to first experience coaching.
Group coaching is both, a virtual and in-person modality. Many coaches and clients enjoy the connections formed virtually with other participants, who may be several time zones and countries away.
