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