  • Typical concerns of first-time, peer coaching facilitators
  • Dynamics of peer coaching groups
  • Getting ready for group facilitation
  • Enrolling/contracting with each member of the group

  • Facilitating ongoing peer coaching sessions
  • Evaluating quality of sessions, facilitation and participants' outcomes
  • Facilitating the final session in a peer coaching program

The afternoon includes each participant's experiencing facilitation of an Authenticity Circles (sm) peer coaching session, including facilitating:

  • Each member's getting and giving help to other members
  • Recording of actions and learning
  • Evaluation of the meeting

The day ends with:

  • Provision of extensive, useful resources
  • Opportunity for participants to get answers to their questions regarding their plans for facilitating peer coaching groups
