The Power of Group Coaching for Incubators & Entrepreneurs

Thursday, February 21, 2 p.m. EST

People who advise and support start-ups know firsthand about entrepreneurial passion and dedication. Coaching these high performers is rewarding, but it can also be challenging – their passion sometimes gets in the way of their success. Entrepreneurs can be singular in focus, headstrong, and often resistant to new ideas when it comes to advancing their business.

This is when a group coaching approach can make all the difference. Surrounded by like-minded founders, these company builders quickly develop trust, respect, and confidence as a group. They become sounding boards, devil’s advocates, mentors and trusted confidants. The results are powerful and permanent as entrepreneurs develop important company-building skills – listening, learning and taking the advice of others. Group coaching also plays to the strengths of incubation program staff as facilitators and not subject matter experts.

This Webinar will present a 10-step checklist for incubator staff to run high-impact group coaching sessions and share how one organization uses group coaching clinics to enrich client engagement and recruit high-quality clients to its incubators.


This sponsored Webinar is free.
