Co-coaching  What is Co-coaching?

As professional coaches Co-coaching gives us the time and opportunity to practise coaching, to try new ways of coaching or to work on something that we might want to improve. Attending a Co-coaching Forum allows us, as coaches, to have the opportunity of practising in a safe environment and of receiving feedback.

The feedback can be targeted - for instance if a coach would like to receive specific feedback on one aspect of their coaching - then they can ask for this.

Co-coaching provides an opportunity to reflect on your coaching style and to experience and experiment with new coaching techniques. It is a three way learning opportunity:

  • Being coached by others
  • Observing others being coached
  • Coaching others on their coaching technique
  • Gain multiple perspectives from a range of coaches
  • Professional network of options and shared strategies
  • Access to overlapping and distinct expertise
  • Create a better foundation to coaching

You can discover an amazing range of coaching methods and styles that have developed to satisfy different needs and circumstances, and so benchmark your own practice.

How are AC Co-coaching Forums run?

Co-coaching forums are run by experienced facilitators who are coaches themselves and who follow the AC Coaching Competency Framework and adhere to the Global Code of Ethics for Coaches & Mentors. These sessions ensure that the maximum time is spent in coaching practice and that new ideas are continually investigated and explored.

There is a growing network of Co-coaching Forums across the United Kingdom.

Benefits of Co-coaching Forums

Participating in Co-coaching will give you:

  • A CPD certificate for each forum you attend
  • Access to a network of like-minded people to share ideas and resources
  • A 'super-view' of your coaching practice

If you cannot find a group in your area and you are a full member of the Association for Coaching you might be interested in starting one. You will receive help and support in doing so.

Who can attend a Co-coaching Forum?

The AC Co-Coaching Forums are normally included within our Member Benefits. However, we welcome non-members for 3 taster Co-coaching sessions.
