Questions were raised about how coflection will be implemented in practice and if peer coaching or coflection provide lower outcome in comparison to individual coaching with a professional coach.
We summarized the answers here:
- For implementation, the EmployID team is currently working on several possibilities how to recombine collaborative reflection and peer coaching on level 2 (element level) and how to realize this by exchange of shared data between the current EmployID prototypes of the Community of Practice (CoP) and the peer coaching room. This is all done in close collaboration with the full-partner PES within the consortium.
- Peer Coaching and Coflection are both methods that have its advantages and disadvantages. In EmployID main objective is to have sustainable and cost-effective solutions which made it clear that solutions where a professional coach needs to be hired are not part of the EmployID tasks. Plus the facilitation aspect is supported though both peer coaching and coflection which is one of the learning goals of the PES. The offers provided by EmployID are additional supportive elements that do not intent and will not replace formats like coaching, supervision and mentoring.
