Optimum use of team time and talent and all
Accomplishment of the team's mission
Empowering the team to manage their own process
and structuring effective ways to manage and support the team
Ensuring the necessary skills and processes
are present to address and maintain group processes, effective
leadership, good relationships, and management of the work
Addressing the interfaces both within the team
and between the team and the remainder of the organization and
others as appropriate
are many approaches to coaching and developing teams. Below are two examples to
give you an idea of some of your options.
Examples of Coaching for Intact Existent Teams
Coaching Example A – Individual
Trait Focus Program: This group coaching program addresses the impact of team
member's traits, preferences, styles, and what they value on team and company
processes, relationships, communication, effectiveness as a group and as individuals,
how tasks are assigned, etc. The program includes
comprehensive individual profiles and individual 30 minute profile debriefs after
the introductory group profile debrief. We
discuss the essential differences between teams and work groups and which your
group should be and effects moving forward.
We explore how to apply insights gained about individual and group patterns
for optimal impact. This includes, but is not limited to, understanding
how you can apply this in relationships with non-team members. We make agreements on actions and measurements
for follow-up by the team. The program includes
phone follow-up with the group leader and with the team on how implementation/application
is progressing as well as interim tips/support emails. |
includes 6 months of follow-up emails designed to support the group’s application
of what they learned or discovered during the group coaching experience.
An additional benefit of this kind of program is improved or enhanced relationships
among team members. This program also can
be done for collections of individuals who do not constitute an actual team, but
who can benefit from understanding self and others and applying that knowledge.
Team Development Example B
– Team overall assessment and critical issues focus. A comprehensive full team assessment using the
“TEAMS” profile and detailed reports that address relationships, team processes,
work management and leadership. We discuss
whether the group is a team or a work group now and which it needs to be.
Together, we evaluate the “TEAMS” survey results and select the critical
issues to address and the strengths to leverage. We
determine initial action plans and both initial and ongoing measurements
to track team progress. The program includes phone checks on progress and interim
