Team and Group Coaching alike are a valuable service offering.  For coaches it adds to what you provide and is a great business builder.  For clients it is affordable.  It may be a starting point to engage in coaching.  Some coaches offer a package of individual sessions and group or team sessions.  For clients who have completed an individual coaching engagement it may be a helpful option for staying on track.

At the Center for Coaching Certification Team and Group Coaching are taught in the Certified Master Coach, Certified Coach Specialist, and Coaching Experience classes.  Group coaching is part of the coaching practicum in each of these classes.
