One way to maximize your impact as a disciple maker is to work one-on-one with a coach – I know, because I do!
But you can also increase your fruitfulness by being coached as part of a peer group.
Here is what that would look like:
Peer group coaching is a discovery-based, action-oriented group process that is designed to help individuals define and accomplish their goals.
- There are two coaching conversations each month: a peer group coaching conversation and an individual coaching conversation.
- Each of these monthly coaching conversations continue over a 3 to 5 month period.
- Peer group coaching conversations lasts 90 minutes; individual coaching conversations lasts 30-45 minutes.
- The role of the coach is to guide the process. The coach does this though direct communication, asking open questions and actively listening to the group and the group members.
- The role of each member is to add value to the process. This includes determining the purpose and outcome of each coaching conversation, responding thoughtfully and honestly to questions, listening well to other members, and identifying specific action steps that they will take as the result of each coaching conversation.
- Both the coach and the group members are responsible to create a safe, supportive and synergistic environment where each member can regularly gain new insights and commit to strategic action.
- What is your role in disciple making movements (e.g., practitioner, team leader, catalyst, etc)?
- Who are your peers?
- How might you and your peer group benefit from group coaching?
