Active Listening

Peer coaching is all about creating an environment that empowers your partner to describe, break down and analyze their own challenges. Peer coaches need to be expert listeners and adept at rephrasing and reflecting back the challenges their partners face in clear and concise ways.

empowering your partner

A peer coach understands that their partner is the expert in their own life and career. Great coaches have the ability to guide their partners to their own solutions. We'll work on techniques to build on your partner's ideas and move them forward without injecting too much of your own opinion into the process.
