Senior Team Coaching
As organisations adapt to new ways of working, the need to build and develop resilience, trust and communication skills within Senior Teams has never been greater.
Many organisations are facing new challenges; from the onboarding of new members into established teams in a virtual world, to maintaining team effectiveness with a team scattered globally. A focus on Senior Team Development at this critical time will refocus your leadership team.
Our experienced team coaches will work with your senior team to help them grow and develop, ultimately achieving their identified goals and ambitions. Using a structured framework and focussed approach, the development agenda is specific for your team and their needs.
From our experience, the needs of the team usually fall into one or more of the following key development areas, of which Senior Team Coaching would be appropriate in addressing:
- Create the team’s purpose, vision and values
- Clarify the team’s strategy, structure and ways of working
- Facilitate a better understanding of the team’s strengths, skills and dynamics
- Address key challenges or where the team has got ‘stuck’
"Observation and understanding - not a prescription"
Although we have a proven senior team development methodology which targets a number of team performance factors, our approach starts with observation and understanding and not a prescription.
The first step in our approach is to spend time with the team leader; this allows us to understand fully their needs. We then talk to all 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 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 senior 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 and/or individual team members.
Our Senior Team Coaching programmes normally involve an initial one to two-day workshop followed by a series of either half or one-day quarterly follow-up sessions across a 9-12 month period; this will depend on the team's need and specific requirement.
Programmes can be held at a location of your choosing, but ideally offsite if budget allows.
