Coaching has to date mainly focussed on individual development in one-to-one relationships, and only recently has there been growing interest in how to coach whole teams.
Originally coming from the sports profession, team coaching has used techniques such as visualisation for overall improved team performance, styles of communication for improved understanding and appreciation of skills and strengths along with a focus on high performing team concepts.
Much of the growing interest in team coaching has come from a realisation of the limits of what can be achieved through individual coaching and leadership development, which trends help create strong individual managers or leaders but poorly functioning teams. The trends have left to a marked increase in the number of organisations using team coaching.
The course provides a comprehensive professional development experience that teaches participants a practical set of tools, techniques and models, and includes supervised coaching from experienced credentialed coaches.
