Team Coaching & Leadership
Team Coaching focuses on future possibilities, not past mistakes and it is just like one to one coaching but it involves the whole team.
Team coaching helps team members to overcome barriers to achieving team objectives. As a team member, you need to develop interpersonal and effective communication skills. Team coaching gives you the opportunity to reflect on your personal and professional responsibility and enables you to reach your potential and improves self-belief.
Team coaching is a powerful way to engage with others and to create proactive solutions to workplace issues and team performance. Coaching effectively addresses both the individual and the corporate wheel, which involves understanding the companies’ culture. Cultural change takes time and a lot of inter perspective, and to some extent “navel-gazing”.
If you want the team to change then you need to look at where the inherent barriers are. Team coaching not only supports a new way forward it reinforces new behaviours, goals and a new way of thinking.
In addition to team coaching, individuals will receive one to one coaching in order to help them really focus on what they have learned from the process. This is an opportunity for individuals to reflect on the intervention and to create personal behavioural changes.
My 5 E’s model is a key aspect of team coaching.
Environment – The team growth coaching programme equips new and experienced members to accomplish growth in several areas of leadership. Developing an environment of open communication, the team will move away from defensive or fearful behaviours.
Engage – As a result, the team will engage with each other on a deeper level creating an environment of trust, respect, integrity, cohesion, and collaboration.
Explore -This ultimately moves the team to explore areas of development, creativity, solutions and generates company objectives.
Enhance – the team’s engagement will improve capabilities, individuals will gain insight into the causes of issues. The team will be proactive in prioritizing tasks, becoming clear with work situations while moving away from personality constraints.
Elevate – The team will naturally elevate and support each other to work and perform towards a higher level of responsibility and accountability. Team members will foster each other’s talent, innovation, creativity and develop greater team effectiveness.
