Peer Consultancy: Harnessing the Power of Peers and Protocol

Are you facing a challenge or dilemma at work that could benefit from insight, expansion and wisdom from your peers and from within?



In this highly interactive session, you will be introduced to a peer consultancy protocol and process: a flexible tool that helps cultivate rich questions, support collaborative problem-solving, bring new insights and expansive thinking to challenging professional dilemmas, and empower individuals toward right action. You will put this tool into practice with your learning and development peers and leave with direct applications for your professional life and practice.

Learning Goals:

  • Introduce a peer consultancy protocol as a way of thinking more expansively, and responding more effectively, to a professional dilemma or challenge
  • Practice using the peer consultancy model with your brilliant ATD peers
  • Discuss benefits and applications of the peer consultancy model in attendees’ diverse professional roles
