Coaching Study Groups

Coaches support coaches to become masterful.

One of the best ways to master your coaching skills is to participate in weekly or monthly study groups with your peers. They are led by senior members of SCM training programs and are free of charge. Some are open to the public; some are only for our members.

HOW TO SIGN UP: There are two steps. Sign up for free using the brief form to the right. You'll receive a welcome email with a link where you can choose the specific session meetings that fit your schedule. Once you've registered for your specific meeting time/s, you'll receive a welcome email with a link that is unique to you and the session you'll attend.

This service is free to SCM members, as well as non-members. However, recordings of study group meetings are only free for SCM members. If you're a non-member who would like a study group recording, you may buy it at left.

Strength Based Coaching Study Group

 Hosted by Sebastian Puelma and Ginette Gaudreault

Meets once a month from 5pm-7pm EDT


Dates for the Group:

April 30th 5pm-7pm EDT

May 29th 5pm-7pm EDT



We are two students who are passionate about Strengths and who desire to further ours and your knowledge on this subject. We invite you to join us on this Study Group that will explore different approaches in the use of Strengths in coaching. 

The plan is to have four sessions of two hours each, where every session will be dedicated to a specific topic related to Strength based coaching. During the first session we will examine the approach of Strengths Model from Gallup. The second session will be devoted to Via Strength from Via Institute on character strengths. At each of the first two sessions of 2 hours, the last 30 minutes are planned to have a live coaching session with a trained expert in the Strength field. The two remaining sessions will be designed to reflect the interests and expertise of the participants. 

Whether you have experience in this field or not, everyone is welcome. We are passionate about the subject and are very eager to expand our knowledge. 

Prior to the Study Group sessions, we strongly recommend that you take both the Gallup Strengths Finders and the »Via Character Strengths assessments. Furthermore, it would be very helpful if you can read the Strengths Based Leadership by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie. ( Additional interesting books are “How full is your bucket” and “First brake all the rules”)
