New Cohort of Coaches Complete Training

Last week, 14 leaders from the Fieldstone Leadership Network met in San Clemente to complete a two-day training on peer mentoring. Selected for their experience and natural disposition to a coaching leadership style, these leaders will complete their preparation in time to be active coaches in our Network for the 2018 program cycle.

Hosted at Casa Romantica, leaders had the opportunity to explore what “leadership coaching is”, how to coach tactical issues using the lens of leadership and how to hold space that is hospitable and confidential all while building relationships with each other.  Time was designed for each of the coaches to cycle through the practice sessions with each other so they could practice working with different styles and challenges and get to know each other.
