Although the field of coaching has been established for years, the concepts of team coaching, group coaching and coaching within a group setting have only emerged since the late 1990's. This emergence has brought with it awareness of the different coaching methodologies however, there still exists a "one-size-fits-all" mentality.
In this course, you will explore the similarities and differences that exist between team and group coaching but more importantly we will identify the key differences that exist between team and group coaching.
The objectives of this course are to:
- Review Current Coaching Landscape
- Define Team Coaching
- Define Group Coaching
- Describe the similarities between Team and Group Coaching
- Describe the differences between Team and Group Coaching
- Review future implications for Team and Group Coaching
