Team coaching is relatively new. Coaching in its purest sense is seen as a one to one conversation that allows one person to share their goals and what they will do to achieve them. Team coaching is much more about how to ensure the team is working cohesively together to achieve a shared goal.

Some of the benefits of using a coaching approach to manage teams

Where leaders use a coaching approach with teams, they can challenge their effectiveness and enhance their potential to achieve the goals. Using coaching with teams uses many of the same skills as those employed in one to one coaching, including

  • Helping to clarify outcomes
  • Identifying and exploring resources that will help in achieving the desired outcomes
  • Exploring options and strategies that will move the team towards the goals they have set
  • Making all members of the team accountable for their actions and achievements
  • Seeing clearly the barriers or paradigms that might hinder progress and success
  • Providing insight and clarity through effective listening and questioning
  • Managing time - frames and deadlines in order to maintain a critical path that leads to achievement of the project or plan
