Transforming your leadership team through coaching

You have probably heard of individual executive coaching, but have you considered the transformative possibilities of working together as a leadership team in coaching?

Typical issues we address include:

  • Agility: Liberating energy for innovation and rapid change
  • Change: Building high performance in new, merged or restructured teams. And responding to rapid changes in technology, markets and competition
  • Inclusiveness: You have diversity on the surface – but is your team truly inclusive? Does everybody’s contribution bring the agility and creativity your business needs?
  • Conflict: How good is your team at having the hard conversations in a constructive way?

Team coaching is the new way to get to the heart of these issues that maximises impact and long term sustainability of changes.

Team Coaching: the new value proposition

You already know that command and control is not enough. And your team’s key performance indicators can’t be addressed just through training or through one-on-one interventions. The real performance dividend comes from tapping into collective experience and wisdom, and collaborative approaches to the perpetual differences you find in any modern, diverse, performance-oriented organisation.

Team Coaching: how it works

We typically meet your team at least three times over 4-6 months. You and your team set the agenda. Your coaches help you make the breakthrough insights and behaviour changes that will get you there.

In summary: we focus on building your team muscle to design and address the systemic changes that add the most value to the team’s purpose.

Team Coaching: partnerships to suit your people

Team performance is all about liberating diversity to drive innovation. To do that you need a good fit between team leaders, teams and coaches. For that reason, with all but the smallest teams, I work with coaching partners who are different to me in crucial ways – together our coaching partnership allows all your people to thrive and make breakthroughs.
