Peer coaching is a growth-centered relationship between two or three peer partners who meet regularly to set personal growth goals, develop action steps, and provide the support and accountability needed for maximum progress. This workbook includes covenants, peer exercises, session outlines and more to build that relationship, plus a set of tools for helping others grow using the coaching approach.

The Peer Coach Training Workbook provides everything participants need for peer coach training (the facilitator needs a Peer Coaching Facilitator's Guide). Each participant needs their own workbook (because the peer partnerships are same-gender, couples will not be able to share the same copy). The Workbook includes:

  • 10 articles covering each coaching topic
  • Handouts and debriefing questions for each video session
  • Peer exercises for each of the 8 group sessions
  • Session outlines and covenants for launching your peer relationship
  • Weekly action steps and accountability exercises
  • Sample coaching dialogues
  • A section of extra coaching resources

While peer coach training is usually done in groups (the Peer Coaching Facilitator's Guide has everything you need to offer the course to your team). This is a great way to check out the materials, to get new people on board that missed the training, or to build your own peer relationship if group training is not available.
