Reciprocal peer mentoring
Reciprocal peer mentoring allows you to have another coach actually listen to one or more of your coaching sessions and give you feedback and coaching in relation to that. In return, you do the same for another coach, listening to one or more of their coaching sessions and providing feedback and coaching on that.
Reciprocal peer mentoring gives you the opportunity to gain new perspectives of the same thing. Another coach with different training, expertise and experience coaches differently to you and can help you develop and expand your coaching skill-set. Plus, don't miss out on the equally, if not more professionally valuable experience of acting as a mentor to another coach. This process in itself often results in more learning and development than receiving mentoring oneself!
All you need to do is register for a suitable mentoring round to get your professional development ball rolling.
When you register for a reciprocal peer mentoring round, you get the opportunity to tell the ReciproCoach coordinator what kind of mentor you'd like to be matched with, and before the rounds starts, you even get the opportunity to submit request from the available mentors.
The coordinator of your round then matches you with two different people: a mentor and a mentee, connects you with them both and makes sure that everyone involved fulfills their end of the bargain within a reasonable timeframe.
You pay for the mentoring you receive, by giving mentoring to another coach. This is the reason why ReciproCoach only needs to charge a small fee for the matching and monitoring process, reducing the cost of multiple mentoring sessions to much less than the price of one
(and here you get up to three included) typical mentoring session!
Some people wonder what the catch is. How can professional mentoring be so inexpensive
? All you need to understand is that you're not paying us
mentoring (you pay for that by giving
mentoring to another coach). Instead, you're just paying us
to hook you up with a mentor and mentee and to make sure you get back what you give (measured in sessions).
You can participate as much or as little as you like. With our annual memberships
options, you can be in mentoring four times a year, or just once.
