Our work with our members has taught us that peer support to work through goals and challenges is a powerful tool to move our work towards justice forward. Neighborhood Funders Group is excited to announce the launch of a new offering this fall: peer coaching circles model based on work by Authenticity Consulting.
Peer coaching circles bring peers together to coach each other and develop more effective, better supported leaders within organizations and movements. In these 5-person groups, each participant equally focuses on their peers’ learning and development. Peers use an action learning process that supports adult learning to hold one another accountable to their goals and support each other to address current problems and challenges.
Through our experience holding and participating in peer coaching circles, we’ve learned that peer coaching circles:
- Offer a confidential network of peers,
- Build leadership skills,
- Support the resolution of real-world issues, and
- Provide leaders the time to reflect and learn as they take action.
