EmployID’s first train-the-trainer workshop on providing peer coaching training was held by Carmen Wolf and Pablo Franzolini from 7th to 8th March 2017 in Zagreb, Croatia. The participants were trainers, PES practitioners, HR specialists and coaches that work in different offices at CES.
The goal of the train-the-trainer workshop was to provide additional knowledge and skills of EmployID peer coaching to practitioners at CES who already participated in last year’s EmployID peer coaching kick-off workshop or the online-course or both. Another goal was to discuss and brainstorm on possible ways how to implement peer coaching process into business processes and into everyday work practice. The idea was to provide enough material and knowledge to provide further peer coaching training within CES. The workshop was a reaction on feedback from the previous workshop and online-course where some of the participants stated that they need additional knowledge and skills to provide further training into peer coaching.
On Friday, 29th of May 2015 the first multipliers workshop on peer coaching and e-coaching (online-coaching) was presented by Pablo Franzolini (ENZYME) and Carmen Wolf (KIT) to the participants of the Training Center at the ZRSZ (PES Slovenia) in Ljubljana. This was organized by EmployID members Urša Dolinar (ZRSZ), Barbara Gogala (ZSRZ), Sebastijan Primc (ZRSZ), and Gordana Kamnik (ZRSZ), Head of the Training Center.
