Join The Coaching Circle of Practice

Welcome to the Coaching Circle of Practice

If you’re a coach, you know better than most people the value of community. Whether coaching is a small part of your role, or your entire business, the Coaching Circle of Practice (CCOP) is for you. 

The CCOP is a group of women from around Aotearoa New Zealand, who meet monthly to reflect on and discuss our coaching practice and philosophy, connect with and support other coaches, and celebrate one another’s success.

Who is the Coaching Circle of Practice for?

The CCOP is for women who find themselves engaged in coaching, no matter the context or how frequent or infrequent that might be. As long as you’re keen to learn, grow, and work towards coaching mastery, the CCOP is the place for you!

You don’t have to hold any title or qualification to join. What we look for in new members is a commitment to develop themselves and support others in their development.

Each month, we tackle a ‘provocation’ from Robert Biswas-Diener’s excellent book ‘Positive Provocation‘, which covers 25 topics relevant to our coaching practice.

The point of our discussions is not to have everyone agree on a single “right” approach, but for us to explore different perspectives, and come away with a more considered and nuanced position for ourselves.

About your Personal Mastermind facilitator

Your Personal Mastermind facilitator is Daria Williamson.

She has more than twenty years’ experience as a leader, and in coaching and supporting others to build their personal leadership and coaching mastery. She published her first book, Unleash Your Awesome in February 2023, and is now deep in the research for her second book, which will be aimed at first-time leaders.

Her role as your Coaching Circle of Practice facilitator is to help you explore your thinking, reflect on your practice, dig into new ideas and develop do-able action plans to level-up your coaching.

You’ll be encouraged and supported to take bold action, and challenged to live up to your potential.

Get ahead of the pack

Trying to learn and grow on your own is hard, which is why so many people give up and stay stuck in the pack. Join our Coaching Circle of Practice community, and get access to the support, insight, and accountability you need to build a more sophisticated, impactful coaching practice.

Connect online

You’ll have plenty of time to keep doing what you do best, because we meet online. Less traffic, more time to apply what you’re learning by taking bold action.

Get support

Our members share the good, bad, and ugly. You’ll give and receive support, encouragement and challenge to live up to your potential.

Celebrate success

Your success matters to us! Our CCOP community loves hearing about your wins and will celebrate them right along with you.

How does it work?

The Coaching Circle of Practice is a monthly online meeting, supported by a dedicated Slack channel where we stay connected between calls.

The 90-min meetings are held on Zoom on the third Friday of the month, at 11am NZ time (if you are outside NZ, the time in your timezone will change throughout the year, as NZ moves into and out of summer time).

The investment is NZ$35 incl GST per month, and covers the provision of summary notes for month’s discussion, and the hosting of the calls and Slack channel. Members reckon that this is an absolute bargain, because the calls are a highlight of their month!

Coaching Circle of Practice Chemistry Check

Before you decide whether to join the community, you are warmly invited to join us for a complimentary “Chemistry Check” session.

This is your opportunity to meet members of the community, and observe and participate in one of our monthly discussions. 

Your facilitator will lead the introductions and check-in round, provide a summary of the provocation for that months, then you’ll dive right in to the discussion.

After the session, your facilitator will be in touch to find out what you think and discuss whether joining the CCOP is right for you.

Joining the community

If you take up the invitation to join the CCOP community, you’ll receive a recurring calendar¬† invitation, and an invitation to the dedicated Slack channel. Invoices are issued monthly on the first of the month, payable by the 20th of the month.

You get what you give

Everyone is encouraged and expected to share their thoughts, insights, questions, and challenges, and to respond to others. We believe in being generous with our support and knowledge.

Between meetings

At each meeting, people have the option of sharing what they plan to work on between meetings.

During the month, you’ll take action, post updates in your group feed, and read and respond to others’ updates. Your Coaching Circle of Practice facilitator is actively involved the group, so feel free to ask questions and share your thoughts.
