Key Objective: A facilitated, focused, and confidential group process led by a skilled coach partner, Team Coaching empowers teams to work toward continued high performance and ongoing development, requiring innovation, flexibility, adaptability and goal alignment.
The growth in team coaching is partly driven by organizations looking for new ways to enable their teams to develop among increasing evidence that leadership development programs fail to yield long-term results. It uses techniques similar to individual coaching with the added benefit of synergistic team support.
How does Team Coaching work?: Team coaching enables teams to identify and address their challenges over a coaching program resulting in deep learning and sustainable change. It involves coaching the team together as well as one-to-one coaching for individuals and observing and supporting team meetings and events.
With team coaching, a team can develop together, clarify its purpose, goals and ways of working, reconnect with stakeholders and better understand their needs and identify powerful new ways to contribute to organization’s success. It’s also a valuable organizational development tool and can play an important part in culture change programs.
Team coaches support teams by increasing their awareness of the current patterns and by challenging its members to leverage their resources, strengths and life-giving forces to enhance team processes, relationships and performance.
Target audience: Team coaching supports divisional teams, functional teams and top teams to navigate complex environments and deliver extraordinary results. Extremely useful for leaders who manage remote teams.
