Team coaching helps a group of individuals better understand how to draw the best from each other and leverage the collective power of the group to achieve far greater results than can be achieved individually.
It’s not to be confused with traditional ‘team building’ days (which often involve outdoor activities, building structures out of newspaper and the like) although these have their place and can be tremendous fun.
Team coaching is focused on fundamentally changing how the individuals within the team work together. It’s achieved through challenging and courageous dialogue, a heightened awareness of one another’s motivations and an enhanced understanding of how the team perceives one another.
