A series of group coaching workshops was designed to address each challenge in small interactive groups. The sessions ran across three concurrent workshops so that participants could build content gradually and put new learnings into practice mid-programme.
To avoid the training dominating leaders’ calendars, sessions were capped at ninety minutes.
For each one, a coaching style of facilitation – one that asked questions rather than giving answers – was used in order for participants to peer-coach each other, and to ensure that each left the session with meaningful, relevant action points.
This ensured participation and had the real benefit of learning from each other’s experience.
At the start of each workshop, the group was given an opportunity to update each other on progress since the previous session.
This ensured everyone participated and that the input was absolutely up to the minute.
