Virtual group coaching
To enable dispersed workforces to benefit from our award-winning group coaching, and to allow clients to be more inclusive in the support they offer their working parents, we have developed virtual group coaching programmes using online meeting facilitation platform Zoom.
Providing participants with an experience as close to the face to face environment as possible, our programmes include 2-way and small group communication, virtual breakout areas and group-wide discussion, all facilitated by one of our highly experienced coaches.
Benefits for organisations
Our programmes have been shown to positively impact post maternity retention and shift attitudes towards integrating career and parenting responsibilities amongst working parents. We have designed our virtual classroom programmes to provide participants with as much of this award-winning group coaching experience as possible.
Employers benefit from;
