The ability to coach teams is becoming an increasingly important element in today’s world. As a team coach, you are working with the individual cares, concerns, habits, and blind spots of each team member as well as with the collective commitments, cares, habits and blind spots of the team. Beyond the skills and competencies required in individual coaching, there are additional skills, complexities and ethical concerns, as well as group and cultural nuances, that you must work with to ensure the team environment is ripe for success.
Working from an expanded ontological framework applicable to teams, and using the ICF team competencies as backdrop, you will learn how to surface and address beliefs, assumptions and moods that undermine team performance. You will learn how to powerfully intervene using a coach approach to address the concerns, breaks and triggers that inevitably occur.
