through team coaching

The team coach allows a team to have the conversations it needs to have that otherwise it would not.

Today's reality

In today’s fast-changing VUCA world—marked by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—teams like yours, across industries (like tech for example), are navigating significant challenges. You might be seeing shifts in expectations, working with increasingly complex tools, and striving to meet ambitious goals with smaller teams and tighter deadlines.

Let’s face it, navigating today’s business world can be a bit like sailing through a storm. Here’s what you might be up against:

  • Shifting expectations: Just when you think you’ve got it down, expectations change—especially in fast-moving fields (like tech). You’re working with complex tools, aiming for high stakes deliverables, all on tighter deadlines and with smaller teams than ever. And the introduction of AI thew us a whole new curveball.
  • Global teams: Whether your team is spread out across different cities or just working from home a few days a week, making everyone feel included is more than just nice to have—it’s essential.
  • Culture: Even when sitting around the same table, team members, stakeholders and clients can be from around the globe, so understanding and appreciating cultural nuances isn’t just useful, it’s crucial.
  • The Ever Elusive Team Dynamic: Ever feel like some folks are rowing their own boat rather than helping with the team effort? It’s not uncommon to find people playing solo instead of pulling together.
  • Knowledge is Power: It’s frustrating when information gets stuck in silos, right? Sometimes people hold onto knowledge because they think it gives them an edge.
  • Miscommunication: Miscommunications can lead to mix-ups or even conflicts, bogging down progress and innovation.
  • Just plain “messy” : All these challenges (and many more!) can add up, leading to quality slips, stakeholder spats, and a workplace vibe that’s far from ideal.


Remember, you’re not alone
in facing these hurdles. Many teams experience similar struggles. Thankfully, a team coach can offer some help.

Imagine...

Now imagine your team…

  • having clarity and alignment of purpose, vision and mission
  • working enthusiatically together towards shared goals
  •  maintaining a high level of psychological safety
  • becoming more resilient to setbacks.
  • building and nurturing the right level of collaborative relationships both within the team and across the team boundary with stakeholders.
  • having at their disposal helpful processes and systems – both internally within the team as well as crossing the team boundary to the wider eco-system, and fostering a culture of continuous process improvement.
  • managing task, process and relationship conflicts constructively, transforming conflict from a barrier into a driver of performance
  • continually leaning into learning, expanding and adapting, in order to grow and future-proof team and organization.
  • understanding, valuing and strengthening the contribution of each team member in a collective team culture that retains personal authenticity.
  • and, last but not least, co-creating and supporting a leadership that works for the team

Imagine your team… in synergy… performant… engaged…

That’s where team coaching can help!

Team Coaching today

Here are some typical situations where team coaching can be valuable, a by no means exhaustive list:

  • Expectations, missions and team objectives change.
  • A new team is being formed and needs to find its bearings quickly.
  • A new team leader takes over or the team is restructured.
  • A team leader and the team members agree that their existing team needs to figure out how to work more effectively together.
  • A long-established team is stuck in a rut and no longer pushing learning, growth and innovation.
  • A high-value-creating top!team wants to do even better.

"What team coaching can do in all these cases is to re-energise, refocus and create collective habits of success."

Team Coaching experts such as Dr. Clutterbuck might put it this way: Effective solutions lie in the interplay of the system of systems that makes up the environment the team exists in. Control is often less attainable in these progressively complex environments, and attention is given to adapting to ever-changing relationships, expectations and support of stakeholders. That is the basis of the work we do as team coaches utilizing a systemic, complex-adaptive team coaching approach.

But ultimately it means: let’s figure out what forces and requirements are at play in and around us, and the various people that our team is working with. Then let’s look inwards and figure out how we can come together to do a good job – collaborate, contribute based on our strengths, and – why not? – have fun while we’re doing it! Let’s pull in the direction of a common goal and create the impact not only that’s expected of us, but beyond.

Co-coaches: a team of coaches

Depending on the complexity of the situation and the number of team mates, team coaching is sometimes done by a pair of co-coaches. I collaborate with other experienced team coaches if need be.

Combining our expertise and experience, we are able to observe, understand and engage the team more fully and drive faster results. This of the co-coaches as your very own coaching team!

A fully custom-tailored coaching engagement

My goal is to provide what you and your team needs, when they need it, with the flexibility to adjust along the way.

Let’s start with a conversation about your challenges, needs and desires.
We’ll figure out if team coaching is a viable option for your team, and whether or not we are a good fit.
