Course Description
This course explores the application of coaching principles, models, and techniques in the context of groups and teams.  While most coaching is dyadic in nature, coaching in group or team settings requires an understanding of the complex social dynamics that shape learning and change in groups, as well as the levers and mechanisms that enable collective action toward common goals.  The course is designed to build on and complement your growing base of scholarship and practice from 720, 722, and 723. 
   
This hybrid course blends synchronous virtual class sessions and team meetings with asynchronous learning, readings, and other self-study activities.  It is a highly experiential course combining conceptual knowledge, integrated practice, and interactive sessions that serve the development of group and team coaching competency, capability, and capacity.  Learners will participate in real time collaborative team projects, through which they will experience team coaching as both client and coach.  They will also meet regularly in peer coaching groups to reflect on their personal learning, emergent challenges, and achievements in the course.  Individual one-on-one meetings with the instructor will complement these team and group experiences in further support of the course learning objectives.  Participants in the course will demonstrate their learning through scholarly and reflective writing, live coaching, in-class discussion, and other assignments.
