Team coaching is a 6–12 month process that develops a team's capacity to deliver sustainable,
inspired high performance
. Guided by an external facilitator, team coaching:
- Focuses on attaining a clear set of business outcomes
- Provides tools for a team to continue enhancing its performance beyond the team coaching process
- Holds the team mutually accountable for taking action
- Builds capacity in both the human relations and procedural (task) aspects of teaming
- Is not a "team building event"
- Relies on the coach to facilitate a learning and action process, not to give advice
- Views the team as a living breathing system with characteristics and identity that go
beyond any of the individual team members
- Does not involve any private and confidential interactions between the coach and individual
team members outside of the team setting.
Taken collectively, these guiding principles ensure that by the end of the team coaching
process, the team has achieved a measurable business impact
and cultivated the self
sufficiency to steer its own ongoing development.
Sustainable Success' team coaching practice includes specialization in leadership teams, project
teams, cross-functional teams, and newly forming teams.
TEAM COACHING FOR PROJECT, CHANGE INITIATIVE, AND LEADERSHIP TEAMS
Sustainable Success' Team Coaching practice works with teams across a broad spectrum of strategic
business initiatives that are characterized by high pressure deadlines and deliverables
Our portfolio of client engagements in this realm includes teams chartered with: leading
and/or implementing new technology applications, developing new products, re-engineering
business processes, and merging organizations.
Research shows that 70% of change initiatives fail
to achieve their desired results.
Sustainable Success' Team Coaching approach offers an "insurance policy"
that minimizes the risk of
, cost overruns, missed deadlines, inferior quality, and team member
burnout. Team coaching can be applied at multiple touchpoints in a project lifecycle.
Newly forming teams benefit from actively planning how they will work together to
optimize team performance. Veteran teams that engage in team coaching will infuse
their work with renewed energy, innovation, and enthusiasm.
