We use team coaching as a focused and potent team development approach where the coach works with the team and the team leader to become more effective in achieving the ambitions and goals of the team.Contact Us
ONE OF OUR COACHES WILL WORK WITH THE TEAM LEADER AND TEAM TO EQUIP THEM WITH THE TOOLS, KNOWLEDGE, ENERGY AND OPPORTUNITIES THEY NEED TO SUCCEED.
This support facilitates key learning or ‘aha’ moments to arise. This promotes shifts in individual and team thinking and behaviour. These changes lead to individual and team growth, development and ultimately greater performance and success.
Although we have a proven team development methodology which targets a number of team performance factors our approach starts with observation and understanding and not prescription.
The first step in our approach is to spend time with the team leader; this allows us to understand fully his/her needs. We then talk to all of the team members and other key stakeholders to build a clear picture of the current situation and the team's specific needs.
Building on this understanding we may commission relevant team effectiveness reports or psychometrics, like Insights Discovery, to further explore and understand the team dynamics and specific context in which the team operates. Some of these tools also provide an excellent framework on which to tangibly measure some of the softer elements of the team’s progress and performance.
Once we have a clear understanding of what is needed we propose an appropriate team development programme which has the right focus to achieve the identified performance objectives. Once agreed with the team leader we then implement the team development programme which can be supported by parallel individual 1:1 Coaching for the team leader or individual team members.
Our team coaching programmes normally involve an initial one to two-day event followed by a series of either half or one-day quarterly follow-up sessions; this will depend on the team's need and specific requirement.
