“CoachingOurselves has been a strategic part of our leadership development programming at Intercontinental Exchange. We have incorporated the CoachingOurselves content and peer learning experiences into all of our management and leadership journeys. Our leaders have found these to be important catalysts for learning, collaboration, building new relationships, improving teamwork, and mentoring. Participants say that ‘the exchange of thoughts, ideas and views with colleagues across the organization is brilliant and inspiring!’.
We use CoachingOurselves with hundreds of leaders, managers and directors every year. I very much recommend CoachingOurselves to leadership development professionals searching for peer-coaching or peer-learning solutions.”

Bonita Roussel, Training Advisor
"In a fast-paced world, managers can stop for 90 minutes to reflect, discuss, exchange and, above all, become aware of different issues that affect them directly. The benefits of such a program are enormous and real for our organization. It is definitely a very appreciated program that has a positive impact on UNI. Our managers do everything to not miss any CoachingOurselves sessions!"
Diane Boulet, Former Director of Corporate Development
"CoachingOurselves ROI: Strong working relationships; managers becoming better people managers; better decision-makers; improved processes and efficiencies, and increased organizational well being."
Johanne Houle, Director Organizational Development
"CoachingOurselves is priced and structured in a way that allows large-scale deployment. One enterprise subscription license allows us to deploy a CoachingOurselves peer-coaching program for hundreds of managers.
This is less expensive than sending one manager to a typical executive MBA program!"

"Our core organizational learning issue has always been how to make it 'real' and relevant to the specific individuals and specific organizational context of the participants... In CoachingOurselves we found it...”

"The (CoachingOurselves) sessions have become a precious 'BA' where 'lonely' managers can reflect on their management style and talk with their colleagues frankly."

"It has been the best training program I've experienced over the 30 years since I joined the company."

"You wonder, how can something this simple work. But it creates thinking points. The process promotes better leadership through engagement. It has given us a common language of management. It is a structured conversation but does not impose a structure. It draws out our experience, relates to our felt needs."

"CoachingOurselves is by far one of the most innovative and cost effective approaches to leadership development. Each of the 80 modules are unique and focused on a different management theme. All participants get really involved in each session, they all learn something from each other and look forward to the next session.
We highly recommend a CoachingOurselves peer-coaching program to other organizations."

"I participated with great interest in the CoachingOurselves peer-coaching session with my management team.
No prior preparation is needed, and the only tool required is the CoachingOurselves peer-coaching module document written by internationally renowned thinkers. Working in groups of four to five, this method was thought-provoking and led to fruitful and lively discussion.
It enabled us to share our experience and savoir-faire, which in my opinion is one of the strengths of this approach—drawing from each person’s knowledge and sharing it against a backdrop of credible information from reputable authors. I foresee organizing such opportunities for development on a regular basis."
Peter Neely, President
“Through the CoachingOurselves peer-coaching program, our team was able to work through a core cultural issue that was stalling our growth. The exercises forced our team members to dig down to the root cause quickly and effectively. CoachingOurselves is a must for any company working through change."

"It has been very good value in comparison with external training courses. Where someone in Perth cannot get access to training and has to travel to Sydney, it costs as much for a one day course as it does for an entire CoachingOurselves 6-month peer-coaching program."
