Peer Coach Training ResourcesWhat would happen if everyone in your group 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 relationships that breed transformed lives.
Or, use the Peer Coaching Materials to offer 8 top-notch coach training sessions to small group or lay coaches.
This 8-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.
