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:
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.
