Become a Leader in Peer-Based Development
The aim of this program is to help international and independent schools build staff wellbeing, engagement, and teamwork by embedding positive psychology coaching practices and perspectives in their school communities. We do this by training, inspiring, and equipping an on-site team and supporting them through an active global network of Certified Positive Peer Coaches.
Positive psychology coaching has been shown to strengthen...
Individual and Team Wellbeing
Performance and Collaboration
Life and Work Satisfaction
Equip Your Team of Positive Peer Coaches
Certified Positive Peer Coaches form an in-house development team at our Member Schools by modeling and facilitating research-backed wellbeing, growth, and collaboration practices in everyday life and work.
In partnership with our Member Schools, we're creating a “distributed ripple effect” of organizational wellbeing and development by equipping and supporting key staff members in each department and division to coach their peers both formally and informally.
As part of the certification process, Positive Peer Coaches are asked to design their own peer coaching vision. This is a simple plan for how they would like to offer coaching support to their colleagues, supporting autonomy and choice in how they apply their learning in their own unique context.
Our Positive Peer Coaching Teams at international schools around the world are doing this in many different ways using the training, resources, and ongoing support we provide...
In-house professional development workshops
Brief (30-minute) individual coaching sessions
On-site group coaching sessions
Solution-focused meeting protocols
Weekly celebrations of strengths and growth
"Walk and Talk" coaching conversations
Staff meeting warm-up activities
Online group coaching (goal setting and check-ins)
...and much more!
