Group Coaching

Group coaching is a dynamic and collaborative form of coaching that takes place within a group setting, as opposed to traditional one-on-one coaching sessions. This approach leverages the collective energy, experience, and wisdom of a group of individuals who are often working towards similar goals or facing comparable challenges.
