Collins’ Journey as a Manager

Collins Learns and Applies the GROW Model
As part of joining the CoffeeChat Peer Coaching Network, Collins completed the Peer Coaching Essentials course which includes a focus on the GROW Model. This coaching framework helps keep two-way conversations structured and outcome-orientated. After being paired with several managers from other companies and practicing this technique, he has found himself also using it with his own team and sharing with them on how they too can approach problems with this outline.
