Online coaching is coaching that takes place over the internet versus in-person. It can be done via a video or audio connection, or even through a messaging platform. Some coaches opt to coach individuals through 1:1 sessions; others work with groups.

Coaching online can be held across a series of platforms — like Facebook groups for posts, Zoom for video conference sessions — or take place in centralized micro-communities, which provide a dedicated space for coaching and for members to foster natural connections with each other.
