What is it?
Systemic Team Coaching is a process of coaching the whole team both when they are together and apart over a designated period of time in order to:
- Align on a common purpose
- Improve their collective performance and how they work together
- Build on their differences
- Develop their collective leadership
- Engage more effectively with all stakeholder groups
- Jointly transform the wider context
When is team coaching useful?
- The team lacks clarity and focus on shared goals and collective performance
- The team needs to lead organisational change
- Team members have little understanding and appreciation for each other’s disciplines
- The team has become ‘stuck’
- Teams experience tensions, conflict or insufficient diversity in thinking
- A new team leader has been appointed
- The team needs to enhance collaborative decision making
- Team members need a safe space for opening up to the true conversations
- The team needs an independent and external perspective
- The team needs to identify new ways of responding to external conditions and engaging the critical stakeholder groups
