Peer Coach Training Workbook

Experience the Power of Authentic, Growth-Centered Relationships
by Tony Stoltzfus
80 pages, lay-flat wire binding
Preview One Lesson

Peer coaching is a growth-centered relationship between two or three peer partners who meet regularly to set personal growth goals, develop action steps, and provide the support and accountability needed for maximum progress. This workbook includes covenants, peer exercises, session outlines and more to build that relationship, plus a set of tools for helping others grow using the coaching approach.

The Peer Coach Training Workbook provides everything participants need for peer coach training (the facilitator needs a Peer Coaching Facilitator’s Package). Each participant needs their own workbook (because the peer partnerships are same-gender, couples will not be able to share the same copy). The Workbook includes:

  • 10 articles covering each coaching topic
  • Handouts and debriefing questions for each video session
  • Peer exercises for each of the 8 group sessions
  • Session outlines and covenants for launching your peer relationship
  • Weekly action steps and accountability exercises
  • Sample coaching dialogues
  • A section of extra coaching resources

While peer coach training is usually done in groups (the Peer Coaching Facilitator’s Package has everything you need to offer the course to your team) it is also available in a special Peer Coaching Independent Study including two workbooks and the Peer Coaching DVD Set that lets two people go through the course on their own. This is a great way to check out the materials, to get new people on board that missed the training, or to build your own peer relationship if group training is not available.

“This is really a dynamite program. Without a doubt, this is going to be the point of entry for coaching to really penetrate the church, because it trains people in coaching skills at the grass roots level.”

“The greatest revelation to me was that accountability was rooted in what I want to do, not what the other person wanted me to do… That whole idea of ownership was very powerful.”

“I got nothing but positive feedback: comments like, ‘This is the thing I’ve been looking for,’ or, ‘This has changed how I deal with people,’ or, ‘I’m a listener now where I didn’t know how to really listen before.’ They got more out of the first night of this than the whole month of [the last program we did].” Small Group Leader

“The material is dynamite. There’s no question about that – the material is unique and this is a home run.” Ministry Team Leader

“The people who went through this were… a handpicked group of the pastor’s core people. This course demonstrated that even though they knew each other and were working closely together, they weren’t holding each other accountable for anything specific…” Coach
