Community Leader Peer Coaching

Leadership Kitsap, in partnership with Sandbox Leadership, is excited to offer an outstanding opportunity to grow your leadership skills. This opportunity is open to all Leadership Kitsap alumni with executive leadership experience. 

The role of leader can be lonely. Who do you seek out when you need support engaging a complex challenge? Who are your thinking partners? Who understands deeply the challenges of your role?

Leadership Peer Coaching groups are cohort-based programs for the professional and personal development of leaders committed to creating a safe space for learning and collegiality. These facilitated dialogs use current work experiences as opportunities for learning. Group members share their unique leadership challenges and gain insight and accountability with the support, wisdom, and guidance of leadership peers from across the region.

Cohort Structure

We create courageous learning spaces together. A group consists of 6-10 leaders from different organizations across the region. An organization will be represented by no more than 2-3 participants in a single group. If your organization wants a peer coaching group with only your members, we can create a unique group for you.

  • Learn from diverse perspectives in psychologically safe, confidential meetings.
  • Meet in person for a half-day to launch the program and another half-day to close the program.
  • Between those in-person sessions, meet virtually for 1.5 hours every other week for eight sessions.
  • Share leadership goals, create accountability, and explore individual and collective leadership challenges within this group of peer leaders.

1:1 Leadership Coaching

In addition to the group peer coaching experience, you will meet individually with a leadership coach.

  • Assess your leadership with feedback gathered from a Leadership Circle Profile™ (LCP) 360 Gain insight into your reactive and creative mindsets and that drive your behaviors.
  • Work one-on-one with an ICF certified Coach for six leadership coaching sessions, starting with your LCP 360 debrief.
  • Accelerate the impact of your leadership by identifying your One Big Thing–a leadership development goal that when achieved accelerates your growth and positively influences your organization’s results.
