Develop your leadership strengths and emotional intelligence with peer coaching.
Develop your leadership strengths and emotional intelligence with peer coaching
Do you want to grow as a manager or leader, but feel like you could use support? The solution: join a peer coaching group. In a peer coaching group, you will meet with a group of 5 to 7 of your peers from around the community to actively solve your unique challenges in real time as you coach each other. You will be guided through the process as each member learns to ask powerful questions.This program is designed to help you develop your emotional intelligence and leadership competencies of greater self-awareness, self-management, relationship management and social awareness.
"As a result of my peer coaching group, I've discovered my management style and how it impacts my work and work relations. My participation has resulted in an increase in my workplace effectiveness, productivity, and confidence. I looked forward to these meetings and was able to bring back tools and methods that I and my busy office have benefited from. I am a better leader and manager as a result." Matthew Ozuna, Whitman College, Interim Director of Intercultural Center Programs and Services
