Peer coaching is a way of being together that focuses on asking powerful questions and opening up possibilities for one another. Peer coaching circles are covenant groups designed to grow your own coaching skills by practicing in a peer group or circle. The Minnesota Conference offers six-month peer coaching circles facilitated by an external coach who introduces coaching skills and practices in a workshop and then facilitates the coaching circle over the next six months.
On Oct. 8, with your peer covenant group, attend an orientation session that introduces coaching practices, like asking powerful questions and exploring how to open up possibilities to one another. After this session, each circle will meet monthly over a six-month period. Each coaching circle includes reflection, sharing, support, and accountability. Circle members will learn and practice coaching skills while being coached themselves.
These circles are facilitated by Executive Coach and Trainer Debbie Okerlund, who has extensive experience partnering with non-profit executives, managers, and educators to navigate changes and grow leadership.
The cost is $225. This includes the workshop with lunch and materials, plus six months of facilitated peer coaching.
