Team Coaching aims at providing a sustained medium and long term coaching to a team, to accelerate development within the team, focused towards making it a Hi-Performing Team. As Hawkins and Smith, define it, Team Coaching is – “Enabling a team to function at more than the sum of its parts, by clarifying its mission and improving its external and internal relationships. It is different therefore from coaching team leaders on how to lead their teams, or coaching individuals in a group setting.
The Coaching engagement could aim at any of the following outcomes for the teams:
Identifying business direction, goals, obstacles, solutions and actions.
Improved mutual respect, trust and understanding.
Increased accountability and ‘buy-in’
Improved teamwork and collaboration
Honest and authentic dialogue
Shared knowledge and learning.
Progress Acceleration from Storming to Performing for New teams
Progress Acceleration from Performance to High Performance for existing teams
Better bonding and enhanced Team performance
Across: Intact Teams, Cross functional Teams or Leadership Teams
