Coaching Circles

Quickly expand your reach and your impact as a coach, facilitator or organizational development practitioner by learning to design and lead Coaching Circles.

Coaching Circles

Skills to support groups

Expand your coaching practice through group work

Coaching Circles provide a trusting environment for a small group of peers to coach each other in exploring the challenges and complexities of their roles and in designing effective and authentic ways to achieve what matters most to them. They are a relatively low-cost alternative to one-on-one coaching programs,  yet they truly enhance the development of people who meet in this dynamic, challenging and safe setting.

Who this course is for

Your experience is welcome here.

This course is presented in partnership with Coaching Circles®, founded by NVW faculty emeritus Charles Brassard, who has over 20 years of experience designing and leading Coaching Circles around the world. We invite you to experience this powerful way to leverage your coaching skills through:

  • Helping people learn how to deal with complexity and develop a range of responses to constantly evolving situations
  • Boosting performance and accelerating the development of individuals and teams
  • Creating a safe and stimulating environment for people to learn and grow
