Team and Group Coaching - Passing Trend or Passing You By?

Session length: 90 minutes

2019-10-17T17:00:00-04:00 Thursday, October 17th 17:00 EDT

According to the 2017 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report, globalization, complexity, and disruption have perhaps contributed to an estimated 32% of organizations surveyed striving to be more adaptable and team-centric. As organizations flex within a complex global economy, trends such as remote working, profit for purpose and digital transformation generate intercultural project groups. These trends mean even the most experienced organisational coach will need to upskill to increase organisational capacity and engage their key stakeholders, well beyond the team in the room.

Yet are we as coaches prepared? And are organizations clear about what is required for team coaching to work sustainably to enhance their cultures? This session will dispel the myth that the progression from one-to-one coaching to team coaching is a linear progression. Instead, a shift in mindset and a revolution of thinking about organisational contexts is required. Real case studies will be examined to illustrate the complexity and nuances involved in working with teams and groups. Tips on how to work with these nuances will be provided.

You will learn how in the coaching space we have the tools and capabilities to guide organisations in achieving their future potential, but to do so we need to broaden our mindset to consider a whole of team approach to coaching. Tammy will show that when teams are given the opportunity to understand the wider team context and design their objectives accordingly, they become more engaged in the organisations’ greater purpose of delivering ideal outcomes, ultimately maximising organisational capacity in a complex global economy.
