    Peer Coaching Conversation

    What would happen if everyone in your small group or team created a personal growth goal, developed concrete action steps to move toward it, and met every week with a peer partner for support and accountability along the way? That's what Peer Coach Training does: it's a structure for building the lasting, authentic, purposeful peer relationships that produce transformed lives.

    You can also use the Peer Coaching Materials to offer eight top-notch coach training sessions to small group or lay coaches--or do both at once: provide coach training while you build healthy peer accountability!

    This eight-session, DVD-based series creates a greenhouse environment for growing accountable relationships while training participants in basic coaching skills. A unique feature of this program is that it is designed to launch ongoing peer coaching relationships. Four weeks into the training, participants begin weekly one-on-one meetings with their peer outside the group sessions. By the end of the course, each peer pair will have met four times, be actively pursuing personal growth goals they’ve chosen, and be well-positioned to keep working together long-term.

    What You'll Learn

    During the training sessions, you’ll also learn a powerful coaching toolkit that includes:
    • Creating SMART growth goals
    • Asking powerful coaching questions
    • Developing concrete action steps
    • Providing healthy accountability
    • Creating a Peer Covenant
    • Sharing authentic stories
    • Problem-solving without giving advice
    • Offering genuine encouragment and support

    If you are looking for a way to move people from basic discipleship to greater maturity, to build a coaching culture in your organization or to provide some healthy personal accountability for your leaders, Peer Coach Training could be the answer!
