Team Coaching is for experienced individual coaches and consultants looking to develop their team practice.

Now, more than ever, organisations are looking at how to motivate and manage their teams in a period of change and uncertainty.

The time is ripe in the coaching market to differentiate Team Coaching from other forms of team or group development and to extend the definition and body of theory and practice of Team Coaching.

Course Summary

Team Coaching is the next big step in the evolution of the coaching profession. But what is it? How is it different from coaching individual team members, team facilitation; team building; team development or action learning sets?

A key component of our approach is seeing the Team as the Coachee and viewing individual members – including the leader, as a subset of that client system. This makes contracting for confidentiality an interesting, delicate and controversial subject.

Stakeholder engagement, internally and externally as well as attention to the wider environmental context adds to the richness and complexity. Coaching at this level, we believe is the hallmark of highly effective team coaching.

John Leary-Joyce of AoEC in partnership with Peter Hawkins author of Leadership Team Coaching, have created an integrative model of Team Coaching. In this workshop, John will outline their complex, systemic approach that demands a much wider range of competencies than individual coaching.
