Are You Utilizing Small Groups as a Transformative Coaching Tool?

I’ve really been emphasizing to the coaches I train that they should consider doing work in a small group setting. Here’s why:

Small Group Benefits for Participants (Clients)

  • When you build a group community, it creates a natural healing environment.
  • When you are observing someone else change, it makes it easier for you to change.
  • You can often see your problem reflected in someone else’s experience, letting you learn in different ways.
  • Just as with mastermind groups, small groups have a larger “mind” than the individuals within them, and that group mind supports healing and creativity.

Small Group Benefits for You as a Coach

  • If you’re stuck, you can draw upon the wisdom of the group, benefitting from everything in the list above.
  • Community is easier to build as a result of being in a group.
  • You can maximize time and help more people.

Are there potential downsides to doing groups? Well, yes… 

  • If you don’t know much about group dynamics and the best ways to form a group community, your groups might end up becoming problematic.
  • You must develop the ability to track individual interactions while being aware of what’s happening in the larger group.
  • You must be able to maintain a resourceful state no matter what is happening in the group.
  • It takes a lot of learning and practice to master group coaching.

Learning group dynamics and group leadership skills takes effort and commitment. Be sure you learn from someone who has mastered how to do this.
