Celebrating 10 years since the release of Effective Group Coaching

Yesterday marked the 10th anniversary since the release of Effective Group Coaching. As we step into the
busy holiday season I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you! Over the last decade, Effective Group Coaching has been embraced by readers from around the world and I continue enjoy getting emails and social posts from coaches who are using that book, or one of my others, to help them create more exceptional conversations.

When I went to write Effective Group Coaching back in 2009 it was already a road-tested set of insights. I had started offering Group Coaching Essentials through my business Potentials Realized in January 2006. The five week virtual learning couse provides coaches a look at the essential best practices for designing, leading and marketing group coaching conversations with groups in the corporate realm, via their own programs, face-to-face, and virtually.

 As we also approach that milestone of stepping into 15 years of offering the Group Coaching Essentials program (it still runs eight to ten times a year for the public and I deliver it to internal groups of coaches as well), I also want to say a big thanks to the alumni who have joined me along the way. I've had participating coaches from every continent (except for Antartica) join me over the years, who are now incorporating the expanded coaching conversation in many different ways in their business.

While the context in which we coach has changed, the principles and skills remain the same.

Where have  your conversations taken you in the last decade? What are you noticing about the shifts and changes?

For more on some of the trends around coaching many, I'd invite you to check out the 16th annual year-end group and team programs call I hosted a few weeks ago. This year's call was 20 minutes in length, reflecting how much crisper, and shorter, our conversations may be. If you haven't taken a look at it, please check it out here.

Enjoy your conversations and wishing you a fantastic week! I'll be back later this week with some special year end goodies. Stay tuned and enjoy your holiday.
