What is Cohort Coaching?
Simply put, a coaching cohort is a small group of like-minded individuals with ambitious goals, who want to work on those goals in a dynamic and motivating environment. Cohorts are assembled by the employer and stay together for a period of time. Ideal size is limited to 12 members. We have also worked with larger groups, and in these cases, smaller breakout exercises are utilized.
Professionally designed and facilitated cohort programing offers organizations a cost-effective way to develop leaders via cohesive, action-oriented small-group work.
Individual members benefit from the chance to think strategically (vs. daily fire-fighting) with peers who are equally motivated and committed to each other’s success. It is not uncommon to see deep, trusting relationships develop – benefiting both the organization and individual group members.
