Coaching for Teams

Aims and Objectives

By the team reflecting on their performance and behaviours, the team will get a great insight and awareness into how they are performing as a team. By attending team coaching sessions, team members will have an opportunity to reflect on their performance, gain greater awareness of their team’s performance and action plan how what they have learnt can be transferred back to their workplace. Coaching with teams can provide the following benefits:
  • Clarification as to their purpose as a team, what do they want to achieve as a team, what is their vision? It will also help them to review and re-define their team objectives and standards of performance
  • What they need to change or build on, what is working/not working so well? What are some of the high point experiences they have had in the team, how they can use these experiences and build on them.
  • How they could improve the dynamics of the team by having a greater awareness and understanding as to the needs and values of others within the team. Facilitation of team conversations.
  • How the team can address challenges more effectively, collaborating to use their skills, knowledge, interests more productively producing a high performing team that is more self-managing, highly productive and accountable to each other. To provide coaching and support to a member of staff in order to meet development needs identified by the organisation and the individual themselves.

Team Coaching can address issues such as …

  • Could communication be improved within the team? Do they listen to each other? Are team members being heard? By not demonstrating effective communication are they ineffective as a team? Explore team dynamics, is everyone pointing in the same direction? Is there conflict or collaboration
  • Could the team be better at problem solving and decision making? Is there an avoidance for decision making? Is there a tendency for certain people in the team to make the decisions and be the problem solvers, the outcome of which is a lack of buy-in by the other team members? Can the team think creatively in order to problem solve? How would improved problem solving and decision making within the team improve productivity and efficiencies back in the workplace?
  • Is the whole team pulling in the same direction and achieving their goals and objectives in the best possible way? What are the roles being played out in the team? Are the roles clear? What is the relationship between the members of the team? Do these relationships enhance or deter team performance? Is there clear leadership within the team and what styles of leadership are adopted most readily?

Overview of coaching

Typically, coaching is about momentum, identifying goals, removing obstacles, generating options, planning action, and actioning the plan. This can focus on the individual, their team or the organisation or business.

By highlighting successes and learning from mistakes, the process brings about a new level of personal effectiveness. So, through a series of specially-devised sessions, the coach works with the team to achieve their goals. The coach helps to identify talents and strengths of the team and its members and to value them and then use these to approach areas of challenge.

The end result is a team that operates more effectively and confidently and contributes to a stronger bottom line and or the organisation’s aims.

Delivery

Coaching can be delivered in 2-3 hour coaching sessions over an agreed period to support teams.
