I attended an interesting webinar – “Peer-Coaching Groups with CoachingOurselves: A modern approach to developing leaders.”
Peer coaching with professional facilitation is an interesting concept. Although I did not hear Henry Mintzberg ever mentioning this, but it reminds me of the Quality Circles. They were popular in Japan in 1950s-1960s, made popular in the West by W. Edwards Deming especially in relation to Toyota. Not a surprise that CoachingOurselves’ success story (still ongoing) is about their program at one Japanese company.
