Session 2: Exploring self-resilience and peer coaching

When life is busy, or all your energy is focused on a special project, it is all too easy to find yourself off balance and not paying enough attention to other important areas of your life.

While you need to have drive and focus if you are going to get things done, taking this too far can lead to frustration and stress. That is when it is time to take a "helicopter view" of your life, so that you can bring things back into balance. This is where the Wheel of Life can help.

This session will cover:

  • How to use the Wheel of life – to help you consider each area of your life in turn and assess what is off balance. It helps identify areas that need more attention.
  • The skill of peer mentoring, for example balance between challenge and support and how to create the opportunity for openness and feedback.
  • Learn how to use a great coaching technique called the GROW model.
  • How to give feedback on peer coaching (to each other): Keep and Start Model.
