Helping teams leverage strengths, and work as a system as opposed to a collection of individuals.
Teams NEED Support!
Studies in the U.S. show that an average team member wastes 7 hours a week on average due to the team(s) being ineffective. This translates to 2 months a year! Considering that 73% of people are on more than one type of team, it makes financial sense to offer coaching to enhance our team effectiveness.
Team coaching focuses on enhancing skills working as a (traditional or virtual) system as opposed to a collection of individuals. This type of coaching is done over a several month process as opposed to a one-time team building event. Team coaching typically includes assessments, team and individualized coaching, planning and measuring success and a summary of highlights and recommendations for continued learning. The objectives of team coaching are always aligned with the specific organizational objectives.

Statistical ROI of Team Coaching
In a 2019 study performed by UC Denver, 25 participants went through 3 days of team development training along with individualized coaching. Pre training participants reported being frustrated, showed signs of burn-out, and felt there was no personal accountability. They reported a high level of internal conflict among team members and highly stressful work conditions. Each participant took a pre and post survey. The results post training showed:
- 100% of participants reported reduced stress.
- 88% resported better communication & trust
- 71% reported improved accountability.
The statistical ROI was 400% return on investment in 6 months.
TEAM Coaching Model
The TEAM coaching model provides guidance, training and support for making teams as effective as possible. The impact is multiplied when team coaching is used to maximize the skills and talents of the employees. Team coaching provides tools for members they can use immediately. The coach believes the team has it within them to excel and rely on the team to design a plan that will best support its success. By intensely listening, asking questions, and offering sincere encouragement, the coach facilitates the process for the team to learn its own answers and then take responsibility for acting on them. This is the truest form of empowerment.
