Team Development

In today’s fast-paced, competitive climate, high functioning, healthy teams are essential. Teams are groups that are organized around a compelling purpose. They have clear boundaries and membership. And they pay attention to both the ‘what’ (productivity and results) and the ‘how’ (relationships and positivity).

Most teams are good at focusing on productivity or relationships, but they are rarely good at managing both without some guidance. That’s where we come in!

The Team Coaching Process

Team coaching starts with an assessment. During the assessment, we identify and create guidelines for goal setting and accountability. We also evaluate the team along two axes: productivity and positivity.

Signs of High Positivity

  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Camaraderie
  • Communication
  • Interactions
  • Value Diversity
  • Optimism

Signs of High Productivity

  • Goals and strategies
  • Accountability
  • Alignment to purpose
  • Proactive decision making
  • Resources
  • Team Leadership

Based on our findings, we will design a program with your team. The length and style of the program will vary based on the desired outcomes.

Coaching is often most effective in these situations:

  • Team startup: designing how the team will work together
  • Midpoint: helping a team increase performance or address an issue or challenge
  • End of project: Facilitating team reflection and learning

Coaching helps team members learn to recognize and break unproductive patterns and form new ways of working together. We take a whole system approach to coaching, meaning we coach the whole team, not individuals. This ensures that the team contributes to its own results.

At the end of the process, we conduct an evaluation to process what was learned.
