What is Peer Coaching?

Peer coaching is when two or more people of equal status work together to help each other achieve their goals. It is a collaborative process that can be used in a variety of settings, including the workplace, school, and community.

Peer coaches can provide support, encouragement, and feedback to help their partners reach their goals. They can also help their partners to identify and overcome challenges, and to develop new skills. It is a valuable tool for personal and professional development.

Here are some of the benefits of peer coaching:

It can help you to achieve your goals.

Peer coaches can provide you with support, encouragement, and feedback to help you stay on track and reach your goals. You can help define each other’s short and long terms goals, as well as hold one another accountable. Additionally, our students also use their sessions with their coaching partners to move through the training at a consistent speed. We encourage them to complete their coaching assignments with one another to achieve their goal of finishing the program.

It can help you to develop new skills.

Peer coaches can share their knowledge and expertise with one another to develop new skills for coaching success. Depending on what niche of coaching each of you are in, you will have different skills and tools you use. For example, our students are learning NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and can share their new tools with one another.

It can help you to build relationships.

Peer coaching helps to build relationships with people who are facing similar challenges. This can provide additional support and guidance to one another. Naturally, when we coach others and they coach us, we relate at a deeper level. We become invested in each other’s success. At iNLP Center, it is not unusual to form long-lasting friendships between coaching partners.

It can help you earn your paid coaching practice hours.
