High-performing teams don’t happen by accident.
Teams are fundamental to organizational performance, yet teams often end up as a collection of individuals with individual accountability rather than being cohesive and high performing.
Getting to high performance requires identifying how the team needs to work in practice. Team coaching enables a team to adopt the practices and behaviors that enable the sum to be far more than the parts.
Benefits of team coaching
Team coaching provides the structure, support, and empowerment that allows teams to learn, practice, and integrate new behavior. Coaching works because it actively, intentionally, and consciously helps teams and team members integrate new practices over time. Benefits include:
Focus on results
Improved conflict management
Individual and group development
A team coaching engagement
Team coaching involves a skilled leadership coach working with a group of executives or managers. This type of engagement may involve several components delivered over months, depending on the goals of the team, feedback from the team leader, and organizational context. For example, a team coaching engagement may include:
- Individual interviews with team members
- 2-4 team meeting observations
- Advisory calls with the team leader
- 2-4 team development workshops (1/2 or full day)
- Individual and team assessments
