Peer Coaching In The Workplace


Coaching has always been the role of leaders in developing people, increasing employee engagement, improving performance and in managing change. We can attest to the fact that coaching works!

Now imagine if everyone, including the individual contributors, in your organization provides coaching to each other. You will create a workplace where:

  • Everyone engages in conversations that provoke innovative and critical thinking;
  • Employees act as “thinking partners” to each other in determining strategies and actions; and
  • People do not heavily depend on their managers and generate solutions on their own.

Equipping everyone with the ability to coach will make your organization a “learning and thinking” organization
