Group Mentor Coaching
We offer the 10 hours of mentor coaching as a group experience at least twice per year. Seven of the 10 hours are in a group setting over three months with each person coaching once and receiving in-depth feedback in a collaborative, appreciative, and dialogued process to increase the coach’s capability in coaching. There are three one-hour individual sessions with one of our mentor coaches, one of which is focused on a recording and transcript of a coaching session done by the student.
