‘Team Coaching’ can be a valuable investment that can bring surprising collective focus and energetic and transformational results. But after all, what is this type of coaching for?
Companies ask us for ‘Team Coaching’ generally for four reasons:
- Because they want to improve their dynamics in a relaxed and fun way to be a high performance team;
- In the event that there is a crisis or conflict in a team;
- If there is a problem with the team's motivation or productivity;
- Because the team has a bigger challenge, a new big and strategic project, and realizes that with the current way of thinking and acting, it won't be able to meet the challenge.
For each of these reasons, we have a specific approach:
1. In case you want to improve your dynamics to be a high performance team
In this situation, we can explore your needs independently of individual needs, we can create a common purpose and a shared vision, or we can identify areas for improvement and synergistically create actions to address some of the challenges. Sometimes we also work on the integration of diversity.
2. In case there is a crisis or conflict
There, we work on the positive skills of the team. These include communication, respect for diversity, trust and optimism. To work in this area we use three models:
- The Collective Emotional Intelligence model
- The Positive Intelligence model
- The MBTI Personalities model
The team focuses on how its members treat each other and how they interact. The impacts of 'Team Coaching' in this area are well known, increasing the team's performance through the team's climate. The ROI (return on investment) is high and can be calculated, for example, through the profitability of previously postponed projects in the team, the retention of its talents or the increase in innovation in the team.
3. If there is a problem with motivation or productivity
In this case, we work on productivity. These forces are mainly focused on goals and strategy, alignment with objectives, 'accountability' and 'engagement'. Here we resorted a lot to the 'accountability' model of Partners In Leadership. With these interventions, the results are even more visible and easier to measure, as, in addition to improving the social climate, there is a very significant impact on production and sales.
4. When a new big and strategic project comes up
Here the objective is usually even more ambitious, and 'Team Coaching' is intended to make the impossible possible with the current way of thinking and acting. The work of the 'Coach' is broader, as it is generally intended to make a change in the various teams of the organization and it is deeper, as beliefs have to be changed. It then becomes an intervention at the level of culture. For these situations we use the Partners In Leadership culture change model, where we alternate between 'Team Coaching' and 'Team Facilitation'. In these interventions, the ROI is even higher, as the team's ambition is greater and what is at stake is generally of a very significant value.
It should be noted that, in all these formats, Team Coaching' only has these results if the team leader accepts that the change also involves him and if there is a collective desire for the team to improve!
When these conditions are met, it really is a worthwhile investment, which becomes even more noticeable when measuring the program's ROI. The kind that has to be seen to be believed!
