How We Work
We believe that businesses thrive when their people do, so we design our coaching engagements around each team’s unique needs. In general, engagements typically involve a series of sessions, usually conducted over several weeks or months and include some or all the following approaches, depending on the needs and goals of the team:
1. Intake Assessment
We will either meet with each team member individually or offer a confidential questionnaire to assess the team’s current performance, strengths, and challenges.
2. Goal Setting
Once we have a better understanding of your team’s needs, we will work with you to set goals for what you want to achieve through coaching.
We will then facilitate coaching sessions tailored to the goals of the team. These sessions may include: Workshops or exercises, guided strategic planning and execution plan development; facilitated discussions.
Throughout the coaching process, we will provide feedback to your team on your progress and support you in identifying areas for improvement.
After the coaching sessions are complete, we may conduct follow-up sessions to help your team maintain progress and continue to improve over time.
Team Coaching FAQ’s
Team coaching differs from other types of coaching, such as executive coaching, in that it focuses on the team as a whole, rather than individual team members. While individual coaching may be helpful for developing specific skills or addressing personal challenges, team coaching is designed to help the team work together more effectively and achieve better results as a group.
Team coaching is for any group of individuals who work together as a team, regardless of the size or type of organization they work for. Team coaching can be especially valuable for teams that are struggling to work together effectively, experiencing conflicts, or not achieving their goals. It can also be useful for high-performing teams that are looking to take their performance to the next level and improve their communication, collaboration, and decision-making processes.
Team coaching can be beneficial for teams at all levels or stage of an organization, including:
- Senior leadership teams
- Virtual teams or hybrid teams
- Board of Directors
- Start-up teams
- Newly forming teams
- Project teams
- Teams undergoing significant change
- Teams looking to take their performance from good to great
The length of team coaching can vary depending on the specific needs of the team and the goals of the coaching program. Generally, team coaching programs are designed to be ongoing, rather than one-time events, as developing a high-performing team is a continuous process that requires ongoing effort.
A typical team coaching program can last anywhere from several months to a year or more, depending on the size and complexity of the team, the goals of the coaching program, and the availability of the team members and the coach. In some cases, a shorter coaching program may be sufficient to achieve the desired results, while in other cases, a longer program may be necessary to fully develop the team’s skills and capabilities.
Team coaching may involve regular sessions, such as weekly or bi-weekly meetings, as well as periodic check-ins to evaluate progress and make adjustments to the coaching program as needed.
The number of people who can participate in team coaching can vary depending on the specific needs of the team and the goals of the coaching program. Generally, team coaching programs are designed to support small teams, typically ranging from three to ten people.
