Two coaches operating as a ‘learning pair’
M Smith, R Gilbert International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2013
Whilst an established aid to personal development, coaching is still in its early stages of maturity. So too, outside of the field of education, is the concept of learning teams. This paper concerns coach development via two complementary coaches working as a learning team when conducting live coaching sessions. It proposes a way in which practitioners might enhance their continuous professional development - and therefore their service to their clients - by making an increasingly efficient and effective use of their everyday work. It is not concerned with team coaching, although many of the principles will be the same.
