How To Do Peer Coaching for Nonprofits

Beth Kanter's curator insight, October 14, 2013 11:17 AM

I facilitated peer groups for NYFA from 1999-2003 and was trained by Carter McNamara.    This was face-to-face and over past five years experimenting with bringing the technique online.   I have found a good mix of technology platforms to support this, but most importantly is that people understand the nuances of peer learning.   So, far for the Knight Foundation Peer Exchange I'm working on now has worked fantastically.   The pure model works best, although have had success with blending some content delivery and this approach.


Methodology for peer coaching based on Carter McNamara "How To Coach Others" 
 

  • Listen closely to the presenter
  • Ask useful questions about presenter
  • Avoid lecturing, giving advice, etc.,
  • Move to learning and actions
  • Remember – you don’t have to be the expert 
  • at presenter’s goal if you ask good questions

When things go wrong, we often focus on the negative. Appreciative inquiry teaches us to focus on what went right and build organizations around what works.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, June 18, 2013 12:56 PM

There's always someone willing and able to point out what is wrong. How we look at the situation effects how we approach it. If management and employees are busy defending their actions, there is little motivation to change. In fact change initiates the physical fight or flight response in the brain.

 

Leading change by focusing on organizational strengths that can be built upon is more effective for motivating employees especially in companies where assigning blame is the norm. Focusing on what went right, what would work and customizing plans for the individual culture helps people feel good about being part of the change.

 

Some will still be upset or unsure but change is easier (not easy) when people are listening.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.
