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.
You will be given access to The Team Conversation Survey™, a survey tool with face-validity tailored specifically for coaches and leaders of the ontological discourse to assess and provide guidance to teams on missing and needed conversations. The survey consists of a core of 72 behaviorally based statements and provides a comprehensive picture of how well the team is performing and offers insight into the critical improvement areas.
The Newfield Team Coaching Certification Program is for leaders and managers of teams and for executive coaches who work with teams (or want to).
This inaugural program is open to Newfield graduates and graduates of other ontological coaching programs.

Team coaching continues to grow in relevance and importance. This growth is an acknowledgement that most people operate in at least one team and those teams are becoming increasingly complex, as virtual meetings, time zones, cultures and matrix organisations become the norm.
At its core, team coaching shares its purpose with 1-1 coaching: To have the coachee (in this case, the team) develop and produce the result on the goal/s that the coachee (the team) identify as important. While team coaching does share many of the same foundational elements as personal / 1-1 coaching, there are many other elements that need to be taken into account.
The Newfield Team Coaching certification program is available to our graduates and to certified coaches. This is because you need to have a grasp of the fundamental coaching approach before you look to work with teams. Working with teams is a lot more complex than working with someone 1-1. You can expect a deep dive into what it means to be a team, the key differences that arise from working with a team as well as a lot of demonstration and practice.
In order to become a good team coach, you should attend a high-quality development and certification program, such as the Newfield Team Coaching Certification program. This will allow you to practice under the supervision of experienced, certified team coaches as well as learn through demonstration and the introduction of ontological team coaching material, designed specifically for this program.
Teams and groups are fundamentally different. You can coach a team and you coach a group. The ability to distinguish a team from a group is an important step in the coaching initiative. Many people believe they are working in a team, but under closer scrutiny, that “team” turns out to be a group. One of the elements to watch for is the necessity of the members to work together in order to achieve the goal/s. Teams generally have an inter-dependency amongst their members, whereas groups do not.
Teams benefit from coaching in the same way as individuals. However talented the team (or the individual), it can be of great use to have access to a skilled coach who is not a member of the team, but who has the touchline perspective, from which to observe the team. Newfield certified coaches also possess the added ability to introduce the ontological coaching methodology to support the team.
The role of a team coach is to work with the individuals within the team, and the team as a whole to develop and produce the results that they have identified as important. The Newfield certified team coach will do this by using a combination of their relationship skills (their way of being) and their coaching skills (their way of doing). It is this combination that makes the Newfield team coach especially effective.
Our Newfield Team Coach Certification program is different because it builds on the ontological coaching methodology outlined in our coach training program and uses another team of specialist expert faculty. The program also utilises the new ICF team coaching competencies.
