Team Coaching enables a team to function as more than a sum of its parts. It supports the team by clarifying what the team is there to do and by improving its relationships, both within the team and between the team and its internal and external stakeholders.
Why Team Coaching?
Some common reasons to engage a team coach include:
- A team that is not performing at its best or is misaligned.
- A team that has been newly formed or has had a significant change of membership.
- A new leader takes over and wants to ensure alignment and clarity of its vision.
- A team that is performing well and wants to stay on course or get ahead.
- A team that is faced with significant challenges and needs to re-group and re-assess.
How Team Coaching Works
A 9 to 12 months Team Coaching Programme begins with an evaluation process, assessing the current state of the team. We then work with the leader and all team members to create a collective vision for the future state of the team.
Based on the evaluation outcomes and our work with the leader and team members, we then design and facilitate a series of bespoke two-day workshops, over the period of the coaching programme.
We work with the team members, both together and apart, supporting them to achieve desired business results and improved performance.
Team Coaching Experiences
‘We engaged with Báirbre to support our Senior Leadership Team specifically in the areas of strategy and organisation structure. She was an excellent support in terms of her coaching style and her ability to challenge and support in equal measure.
Báirbre very quickly developed a deep understanding of our team dynamics and facilitated excellent work on developing clarity around Directors roles and responsibilities while also focussing on individual strengths and areas of interests. Her probing questions challenged our current strategy and thinking and brought a really insightful strategic perspective to the coaching process.
I would strongly recommend Pause to any senior management team looking to develop clarity around strategic direction and organisational structure.’
