People with complimentary skills, committed to a purpose …..

J. Katzenback

There are so many factors that impact on a team’s performance, such as:

  • Identity
  • Diversity
  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Conflict resolution

So what does a team coach do?

In a sentence, the coach helps the team to define its purpose and priorities. Although individuals may be a shining light in their field as an individual, this does not automatically transfer to a team setting. Team members need to trust each other in their respective abilities and contributions to the overall goal. In order to do this, a dialogue has to begin to open the communication channels so that members can voice issues/concerns and opinions in a respectful manner.

How does the team benefit?

  • Collective self-belief
  • Alignment of team values
  • Developing supportive behaviours
  • Identifying team values
  • Recognise individual roles
  • Surviving setbacks

Team processes and behaviours can be become ‘stale’ over time, and the attitude of “we’ve always done it this way” can prevail. This is where team coaching can delve into those unwritten patterns of behaviour to bring about positive change for those involved.
