Peer-to-peer coaching or also simply known as peer coaching is an emerging trend standing side by side with the coaching/mentoring trend. The whole education system and workshops were always based on the idea that a well-informed person, with a substantial amount of experience, is passing on his knowledge to the people that thrive to learn and acquire a new set of skills. It is proven that it works perfectly fine and it has exceptional results among many. Nevertheless, some people feel more comfortable being taught within a group, whereas some prefer a one-on-one type of learning process. All teaching methods have changed throughout the years, but lately, there is more and more discussion about the peer coaching method, and it is very often compared to the mentor one.
What is peer coaching?
Let’s see why peer coaching is so hyped up lately and what are its benefits. The meaning of the term is hidden in the name. Basically, peers – people in the same field, exchange, refine and enrich their knowledge in relatively small groups.
One of the many perks of this method is the self-reflection and self-evaluation one can get. Receiving feedback from more peers can significantly improve the quality of the performance, by simply giving an all-around view and covering diverse points. All peers have only the best interest at heart and tend to be honest. A further benefit is the team spirit that the whole experience creates by simply leading to more personal and trustworthy professional relationship. Finding a safe space and understanding can boost engagement and encourage people to learn new skills without feeling any pressure. It put emphasis on asking questions for personal development. Additionally, it improves the soft skills within the group and promotes the development of leadership skills. In that way, people will start taking action and peruse growth.
