Date Developed: 2011. Source: Maternal & Child Health Public Health Leadership Institute. Presenter(s): Claudia Fernandez, PhD. Type: Narrated Slide Presentation. Level: Introductory. Length: 15 minutes.


This 15-minute slide presentation begins with a brief description of leadership versus management and discusses the merits and benefits of peer coaching as well as strategies for integrating peer coaching within an organization. Dr. Fernandez talks at length about the use of reflective questions in peer coaching and how to use questions to help peers process what they already know, generate potential strategies for the problem, contemplate possible outcomes and decide on a solution themselves – a solution they can “own”. There are directions for an example exercise within the presentation.
