Group Coaching

Group coaching is a form of development session with several participants, based on their cross-interaction and aimed at increasing individual and group efficiency in an organizational context. The coach–moderator manages the process, focus, and direction of the group session.

Ward Howell’s group coaching sessions address a client's individual needs and are customized to meet the business context of their organization as well as the specifics and demands of the participants themselves.

Program structure and methodology

  • Working in groups of 4–5 people;
  • The duration of the coaching sessions is up to four hours, including coffee breaks;
  • The approach was developed by Manfred Kets de Vries, a Director of the INSEAD Global Leadership Center, and adapted by Stanislav Shekshnia, a Professor at INSEAD and Senior Partner at Ward Howell. 

Coaching sessions can be held either face-to-face or online.
