“In consulting, you’re a subject matter expert, and provide solutions based on your expertise. The consultant is the hero. In coaching, you’re a process expert who serves the client and the client’s agenda within a coaching process or framework. You use your background and expertise in coaching to inform your questions. In coaching, the client is the hero.”

Build trust and rapport with teammates, improve understanding of different personalities, and explore diverse perspectives to grow and strengthen an existing team.
Similar to Team Coaching, Group Coaching facilitates discussion and growth with a group of similar people who aren’t part of a team- a group of CEO’s, for example. They’ve come together around a particular purpose or topic, share and learn from each other’s experiences, then go back to their respective companies with fresh and renewed perspective.
