Group Coaching

When people ask me what I do, I say that I'm an executive coach and that I coach both individuals and groups.

Currently I coach (chair) 3 leadership groups. Although it’s become fashionable for an executive to have his or her own coach, I believe you can get great results in a group setting as well.

I’ve learned a lot about creating powerful groups from what Manfred Kets de Vries has written about high-performance leadership groups. Kets de Vries is a professor of leadership development at INSEAD, the European b-school in Fontainebleau, France. Here’s what “Mighty Manfred the Wonder Coach” has to say about coaching in groups:

“Although one-to-one coaching currently has the center stage, my experience has shown that leadership coaching in a group setting has the highest payoff: high performance organizations, results-oriented and accountable people, boundary-less organizations, and true knowledge management.”

My 3 groups are all different and I love each of them. Though they are different, I’m looking for the same things in my members regardless of which group they join. I’m looking for a few good men and women who are…

  • Committed to learning and trying new behaviors to become better leaders.
  • Authentic and willing to be vulnerable within the group; they’ll seek the group’s help to resolve issues.
  • Open to the idea that their group can become “armed & dangerous” and they’ll feel about that group the way they felt about other powerful groups or teams they’ve been members of.
