There are many different types of group coaching, however the Learner Led Approach is in our experience the most cost effective method, is highly sustainable and requires a minimum of external support. Accountability sits within the group and the quality of output and effectiveness is largely dependent of the mix within the group and it’s ability to be self-directing.


CoachMatching will work with the organisation to assist in creating the structure and process within which the coaching takes place. We will train individuals through a one hour presentation plus 2 hour practical session.


Thereafter we can supply qualified group coaches to support the various groups until they are confident to be able to follow the process effectively without external support. In our experience this only takes 1-2 sessions.


Situations where Learner led coaching is effective:

To support leadership development programs

Where there is a high % of generation Y

After a period of one to one coaching

Self directed teams or Scrum

Limited training budgets
