For those that have my latest book, From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching, I delve into the topic of peer coaching in chapter 9: Capacity Development: Coaching, Mentoring and Supervision.
Four skill areas you can consider putting some attention developing capacity for within your team include:
- Effective Listening
- Asking great questions which are open ended, and invite peers to expand on their ideas, more clearly articulate their own, or discover other perspectives/options/solutions
- A focus on supporting new awareness and action forward
- Accountability amongst peers to enhance follow-through and Walking Your Talk.
What can you do to foster stronger peer coaching skills in your team?
