Learning from others

There’s an incredible energy and collective wisdom found in group coaching that’s different from individual sessions, and one that the lonely long-distance runner that is often the entrepreneur can benefit from. A group of your peers can help you set the pace, occasionally allow you to slipstream and generally make life easier for you.

You learn from your peers; your industry or other industries and it encourages collaboration.

Going through the coaching journey in a group means more than merely the act of coaching and being coached. It’s about the connection, communication, and community that this brings to the table. This is where the magic happens. Through the transferred energy of group interaction, and the immediate access to the insights, feedback and experience of a group of your peers, you will kickstart the process of learning and transformation.

It gets you to focus on strategic thinking.

Honing the skills necessary for effective strategic thinking is imperative in your journey as an entrepreneur and leader and will be addressed in group sessions. Strategic thinking will help you to create a business strategy that is unifying and rational and creates a usable  framework for decisions related to using your resources effectively and in deciding the direction of your business. The five attributes of strategic thinkers include understanding your place in the market; focusing on the goal; understanding past, present, and future events; asking the right questions; and identifying opportunities. These skills support innovative thinking and lead to business growth.

Brainstorming and generating ideas as a group is still one of the most effective ways to challenge the limits of your own thinking, and leaves you open to novel insights and solutions from others. This is why we encourage and value group coaching sessions as an indispensable tool for business development and growth in leadership.
Working within a group will also prepare you for the actual dynamics of the collaborative nature of modern business and build transferable skills that will come in handy in your race to the finish. It takes sensitivity and emotional intelligence to navigate group dynamics and benefit from the experience. Emotional intelligence has as much to do with knowing when and how to express emotion as it does with controlling it – the ability to manage feelings and handle stress is an aspect of emotional intelligence that predicts long-term success, and one that is transferable in the workplace.
An owner or entrepreneur that has honed their abilities and skills through group coaching sessions, is able to engage in deeper systems analysis and employ their transferable problem-solving and decision-making skills closer to home. The lessons learned in peer-to-peer group coaching sessions can have an invaluable long-term impact on management skills and allow you to lead through change.
