Coaching Dojo

Want to build your coaching skills? Need answers to a tough problem that you or your team is facing? The coaching dojo is for you! We will form small groups where one ‘seeker’ will get five minutes of coaching from multiple coaches. Then the tables turn and the coaches get feedback. Here’s the formula:

  • We will break into groups of 6: 1 seeker, 3 coaches, 2 observers
  • The first coach works with the seeker for 5 minutes
  • The second coach works with the seeker for 5 minutes
  • The third coach works with the seeker for 5 minutes
  • The seeker and observers give the coaches feedback for 5 minutes
  • Form new groups and repeat!
