Peer coaching can make a huge difference in reaching your work and personal goals, but how do you get started and and make it stick? We’d love to share our informal peer coaching method that combines personal responsibility, agile, and goal setting in a way that is guaranteed to be successful. We call it “Thing Three.” In this interactive session, we will teach you the basic format we follow, along with the research to back up why it works. We will also demonstrate how it has helped even the busiest colleagues stay accountable consistently, over years, and continue to reach every goal they set. You’ll get to exercise these skills too and immediately see the value of peer coaching!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Thing Three is an informal process we’ve created and have been using for years to facilitate peer coaching for both work and life. Participants will learn how to leverages agile techniques, like commitment/objective setting, limiting WIP, cyclical planning & reviews, and constant collaboration for their personal goals and challenges. They will leave with the tools to succeed in today’s VUCA world by providing vision, understanding, clarity, and agility.
