Can I coach specifically in groups?

by Sanet Deysel

I have a passion to work with groups (schools, corporate, churches etc) especially on the topics of self-image, leaderships skills etc. Will this course equip me to work with groups (I don't have office space at home to see individuals Skype is an option, but not all have Skype and I love to travel, so group sessions is more my style)?

Coaching in groups
by: Bill Burridge

Hi Sanet,

Our comprehensive skills training programme will impart all the skills you require (and more) to coach professionally.

Life coaching does typically happen on a one-to-one basis because of very unique and personal nature of each client's requirements, however there are many useful principles and techniques you can apply to groups of clients and you can then ask them to submit personalised individual 'homework' separately. Many of our trained coaches do conduct group coaching very successfully.

Bear in mind that our training programme comes with a 13 session coaching system which is specifically designed for one-on-one coaching (either face-to-face or via telephone/skype) and would have to be adapted for group coaching.

You are not obliged to use our coaching system in your professional practice but you would be required to use it for your practicals during the certification process, so for that purpose one-on-one coaching would be necessary.

Kind regards - Bill.
