Develop leadership strengths and emotional intelligence with peer coaching
Many of us want to grow as leaders, but feel like we could use support. The solution: join a peer coaching group.
In a peer coaching group, you will meet with a group of five to seven 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.
This peer coaching group is for: executive directors/CEOs with 3+ years of experience.
Outcomes from recent peer coaching group participants:
100 percent experienced stronger skills establishing and achieving goals
93 percent experienced new and diverse learning
92 percent experienced increased productivity
85 percent experienced improved problem-solving skills
85 percent experienced enhanced self-empowerment and assertiveness
84 percent experienced increased motivation
The group will meet monthly for six-months beginning in April 2013 from 4-6 p.m. Dates are: April 10; May 8; June 12; July 10; Aug. 14; Sept. 11, at the Edmonds Senior Center, 220 Railroad Avenue, Edmonds.
A preparatory meeting will be held on Feb. 13, from 4-6 p.m. so participants can meet others and learn about the process.
Submit your interest form at Capacity4Good by Jan. 31.
Participants need to:
• Attend a preparatory meeting on February 13 from 4-6 p.m. to meet other participants and learn about the process.
• Commit to the full six months so that the groups can establish trust among each other, which leads to greater capacity to coach each other.
Peer groups are facilitated by Amy Erickson of Capacity4Good Consulting, who was trained by the country's most noted peer coaching and action learning authority Carter McNamara of Authenticity Consulting.
Erickson bases her peer coaching program on helping members develop greater emotional intelligence.
