I have the privilege of being part of an amazing peer-support group that meets every two weeks with one purpose: “to support our development as coaches!”
And yet, as we grow as coaches, we are also called on to do an incredible amount of inner work. Our mission has thus evolved to be: “to support each other as humans and as friends!”
The accompanying content was developed to support this process and has served as inspiration. The hope is that this content may inspire other coaches to set up their own peer-support groups or that it may serve in some other fashion. It is not intended to be the last word on anything!
That coaching is a craft that requires a commitment to mastery. Mastery is about ongoing practice in all aspects of that craft, starting with who we are as humans and as coaches.
Guidance on Navigating the Programme
The invitation is to do this within the safety of a small, trusted group.
The suggestion is that you meet on a regular basis for up to one hour and that you focus on one, or at most a small number of topics, each time you meet up.
It is also not intended to be linear. Rather, feel free to jump back and forth and equally to come back to the same questions when you feel you can take them to a deeper level.
