“Take your team to the next level”
The What & Why of Team Coaching
The International Coaching Federation states that:
“Team Coaching consists of partnering in a co-creative and reflective process with a team and its dynamics and relationships in a way that inspires them to maximize their abilities and potential in order to reach their common purpose and shared goals.“
“Team Coaching empowers teams to work toward continued high performance and ongoing development, requiring innovation, flexibility, adaptability and goal alignment.”ICF
In addition to that, team coaching:
Provides the team with what it needs: time to clarify its purpose for CHANGE and a method to co-create its own sustainable strategies, solutions and practices.
Allows the team a safe space to identify and reduce energy losses and inspiring team members to maximize their connectedness, abilities and potential in order to achieve their common purpose and shared goals.
Fosters internal team dialogue and self-sufficiency, enabling the team to move to its next level in a sustainable and permanent way.
Issues and ambitions in teams
I interviewed 21 teams across 8 countries to get a clear picture about challenges and dreams in teams.
The responses to the survey I launched show that:
TOP 3 ISSUES
limiting team´s effectiveness
TOP 3 AMBITIONS
to bring out team excellence
Based on my experience as an R&D team and group leader, I see the issues that arise in teams as energy losses that limit the potential expression of the individual members and the team as a whole. The elements to be leveraged are exactly the ambitions of the team itself, i.e. what the team brings out and what it is strongly motivated to develop.
One of the roadblocks for groups moving forward now is thinking that they have to wait for a leader to emerge – someone who embodies the future path. But I think what we’ve been learning with the U process is that the future can emerge within the group itself, not embodied in a ‘hero’ or traditional ‘leader.’P. Senge, O. Scharmer, J.
