    Peer Coaching Program

The program is grounded in the belief that participation in a trusting environment with colleagues who support and facilitate self-directed learning, everyone has the capacity to develop solutions, clarify priorities, and remove roadblocks in their own unique way through coaching conversations that provoke new insights. This pilot program launches in September 2022. The application period is April 14th-22nd. See below for program details and apply here
