Sustainable Team Performance through Team Coaching
‘To challenge the team over time to maximize their performance, effectiveness, learning and enjoyment and to achieve their objectives in service of the organization.’
Team coaching is a powerful tool that brings individuals together to develop their skills, awareness and efficiency, leading to a more focused overall performance. Team coaching enables a team to function as more than a sum of its parts by clarifying what the team is there to do and by improving the relationships both within the team and between the team and its external environment.
Achieving this goal requires integrating a finely balanced combination of individual coaching, work on interpersonal relationships, coaching the whole team on its purpose and behaviors, building successful stakeholder interfaces, and aligning the purpose of the team with the needs of the wider organization. Team coaching is a well-blended synthesis of team facilitation, organizational consulting, organizational development, individual work, and team development work. The specific combination and approach used depends entirely on the formation of the team, what stage the team is at in its lifecycle, the organizational context in which it is nested, and the issues and challenges the team faces.
“High-performing teams don’t happen overnight”
What do we offer?
We don’t believe in providing ‘our solutions to your challenges’. Instead we encourage each team member to take responsibility for the group’s combined objectives, giving them the tools to work together and find their own solutions.
Whilst our team coaching programs are customized, each is broadly structured around the following five steps:
- establishing the team’s objectives with the leader
- one-to-one sessions with each team member to establish personal objectives
- a ‘launch event’ where the team establishes its own goals and development agenda
- a series of workshops over 6-12 months to establish and embed new working practices
- review progress and ensure sustainable development.
Additional one-to-one sessions can be offered to team leaders as well as individual team members in order to support their development.
We have a variety of programs to choose from, but if you have more specific requirements that are not covered here, we would be happy to tailor a program to your needs.
