How a Small-Group Coaching Circle Helped Mid-Level Leaders Thrive
A recent Harvard Business Review article said,
“The benefits of small-group coaching come from powerful learning interactions among leaders who aren’t on the same team but are roughly equal in experience and position, and the process can generate leadership development impacts that exceed what’s possible in one-on-one coaching.”
Building upon this idea, last June, we launched the Tech Leads Coaching Circle for mid-level leaders and seasoned professionals in the tech industry to foster a supportive and collaborative learning environment.
We were pleased to see that our initial cohort included a diverse range of professionals, including a few staff-level senior engineers, an engineering manager, a product manager, and a business leader with international experience, all bringing unique perspectives and expertise to the group.
Over the course of nine months, our coaching circle, facilitated by executive coach Sharmin Banu, provided a safe and non-judgmental space for members to share ideas, give and receive feedback, and support each other’s professional growth. As a result, members reported qualitative improvements in their thinking and professional abilities and a sense of camaraderie and community that is often difficult to find in the workplace.
In today’s world, we do not always know how to solve the problem or make progress in an ambiguous situation. That’s why such a peer group could become so valuable for anyone.
Inspired by this success, we now have opened enrollment for only six new members. You can try it out for two weeks for 19.99 before continuing as a monthly member. Use this link to join and coupon code TLCBeta2 to get 20% off your monthly membership fees.
