Virtual Coaching

What is Virtual Coaching? It refers to coaching techniques used when the coach and team(s) can’t meet in person.

In keeping with our commitment to increasing shared learning opportunities, and in immediate response to the challenges of these new COVID-19 times, we formed a small work team with colleagues from CCNet and collaboration from the Conservation Measures Partnership, to offer training sessions on virtual coaching.

A few recommended resources:


Introduction to Virtual Coaching (April 30, May 1, 2020). In this training participants can learn about what is virtual coaching, virtual venues, how to prepare for a virtual coaching session and how to respond to common virtual challenges. The presentation slides, with annotations, can be downloadad here.

Using Mural, a virtual whiteboard, to coach remotely (August 27 – 28, 2020). In this webinar, hosted by Olivia Millard, Armando Valdés and Felix Cybulla, participants can learn all about Mural and how to use it to coach project teams.
