About Build a Thriving Group Coaching Practice and Business

New Groups Starting in Winter 2021!

Group health coaching is a vital tool for health and wellness coaches because it is the wave of the future. National movement toward group health coaching and group visits has been a trend the past few years, and the interest is growing. Group health coaching allows us to reach more people for three reasons: it offers reduced participation costs, it creates an instant community of support around a common experience, and it decreases the time investment on the part of the coach. Translating coaching skills to hold space for multiple people while navigating the many moving parts that need to be tended to in a group requires skill and practice. This series will prepare you to design, market and deliver your group coaching offering.
  • Describe and demonstrate key components of group health and wellness coaching.
  • Practice skills and techniques that coaches need to develop to successfully design, market and deliver group coaching.
  • Evaluate research and best practice regarding group health and wellness coaching.
  • Identify basic and advanced facilitation techniques that support the delivery of group coaching.
  • Identify opportunities to apply this work in the field.

Session Details

Groups will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30pm CST via Zoom, an online video conferencing platform.
