Group Coaching Program Overview

Improve your group coaching skills and ability to lead virtual workshops through my Group Coaching Mentoring Program.  First observe me leading groups in my own Virtual Workshops.  See how I evoke the wisdom of the group, getting participants to share deeply and learn from each other.  I create a safe environment for people to learn new interpersonal skills.

Approach – How to improve your group coaching skills:

  • You observe me leading discussion on a topic.
  • You volunteer to lead a portion of this topic next session.
  • Next session, you lead that portion and get feedback.
  • You decide if you want to add this topic to your repertoire to offer yourself.
  • If yes, you sign up for further sessions to lead and be coached to gain more skill.
  • As an option, you can get further live coaching when you deliver this topic to your own clients.  You can hone your skills as closely as you want.

Observe me and then lead a group yourself to learn one of my topics and get feedback.  You may keep on leading and getting coaching until you have a sense of mastery.  Then you can take this topic on the road to your own audiences.  This is the best way to get new clients.

And you can have me observe group coaching that you are already doing and give you feedback and suggestions for improving your group coaching.  In everything you do with me, you will be improving your group coaching skills.

Biography of William R. Murray (Bill)

I was one of the first to be awarded the ICF designation of Master Certified Coach (MCC) in 1999.  I have a Harvard MBA, a Yale M.Div., and am a graduate of Corporate Coach U.  I was also one of the first coaches to use the web to offer my virtual workshops.

I have 40 years of experience both as a Mentor Coach for other coaches and leader and Executive Coach for corporate leaders.  I also was a corporate trainer and did “train the trainer” “work for Zenger-Miller, a world-class consulting firm offering leadership training.  I trained line managers how to put on Zenger-Miller’s workshops by using group coaching skills.  My boss said I was one of the best “train the trainers” she had ever seen.

I excel at coaching coaches and corporate trainers how to improve their group coaching skills.  I was one of the first to develop virtual group coaching. Now I use my “train the trainer” skills to coach others to excel in group coaching and to lead topics from my Virtual Workshop Series.

How the Group Coaching Train the Trainer Program Works

Choose from 50 hours of group coaching topics with broad applicability from my Leadership Communication® Virtual Workshop Series.  You can learn to lead a topic and make it your own program that fits within your own repertoire.  Leadership Communication® topics are described at

I shall advertise on our ICF website as I offer you each independent Module from 1-10.  Each Module will have 3 teleclasses of 1 ½ hours each, spaced out one per week.  This spaced-out learning gives you a chance to practice skills in between sessions, tell us what happened and get feedback.  4.5 hours of ICF CCEUs will be awarded to those who attend all three sessions of each Module.  No partial hours of CCEUs will be awarded.

After you receive the 4.5 hours of training, you will probably want to continue with more training on that Module in order to learn other topics and hone your skills.

In addition, you may if you wish, individually hire me to coach you on a Module or topic that I am not currently coaching.  You can learn a lot on your own too by purchasing my Self-Study Course on the same topics,  You can also use this Self-Study Course to speed your learning even if you are getting coached.

You can also receive individual coaching from me to improve your group coaching programs that you are already offering.


Module 3 of Leadership Communication® is Dialogue Skills:

  • Foster collaboration
  • Clear up misunderstandings
  • Create win/win solutions
  • Make others feel heard.



You may learn at any time with my one-on-one individual coaching, or in a group.   We shall have 3 sessions of 1.5 hours each on 3 Tuesdays, October 29, 2013, Nov. 12, and Nov. 19 at 10:00 to 11:30 ET.  You then have the choice to continue or not.  When you register, you will be given the call in tel number, screen sharing software, etc.

CCEUs:  As is common for programs advertised on ICF’s website, if you want ICF approved CCEUs, you pay $15 per CCEU = $67.50 for 4.5 hours of CCEUs.  This $67.50 will be an additional charge when you request your CCEUs by emailing in the passwords given out during the 3 sessions that will indicate full attendance.  Perfect attendance will earn you 4.5 CCEUs from ICF.  A missed session may be made up through individual coaching.  No partial credit will be given.

Individual coaching will be arranged with each individual.
