Grow Yourself in a Coaching Group

How often have you read a book, taken a course or listened to/watched a good message and thought, “I’m going to start doing that!”

My answer is I’ve done that more times than I can count. Often I do get started…but my track record of sticking with things until I produce real results that I’m proud of is pretty bad.

The exception to that is the times that I’ve been part of a group effort or some kind of organized coaching program. 

When I started my own training as a coach twenty-five years ago, I joined a coaching group for other beginner coaches. We had two mentor coaches leading us, and it gave me direction, encouragement and community.

Over the years, whether I’ve been learning specialized knowledge, skills, languages or I was just needing some extra support in navigating a tricky part of life, it’s the coaching groups I’ve belonged to that have really made the difference for me.

Where Are You Going?

Leadskill is here to help leaders gain greater self awareness. That is usually a process that takes quite a bit of time and dedicated effort. Group coaching can accelerate the learning and the process.

Whether you are trying to clarify your own self direction, get started on your own self-awareness journey, or learn a specific skill to help you grow as a leader, we can help.

It all starts when you answer the question: where am I going?

Alice: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.

“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.

“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.

“–so long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.

“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

One of the key acts of leadership is deciding on a direction and destination. “Where am I going?”  “Where are we headed as a team or organization?” Until that’s clear, the Cheshire Cat is right: it doesn’t matter which way you go. 

Get Clear on the What and Where, then Work on the How

Who is group coaching for? People who want to get clear.

Whether that is defining your where (destination), your what (goal or vision), or your how (process, skill-building, learning), group coaching can help. Sometimes the answer comes while you are being coached, while other times it happens as you listen to others being coached and you apply the principle to yourself.
