Building Collaboration through Shared Goals
Research shows that a high-functioning team rises to the level of its most effective members. Sadly, dysfunctional teams fall to the level of their least effective members. We provide group/team coaching to increase team effectiveness and improve decision-making, communication, and buy-in for actions among executive teams. When assisting cross-functional teams, we have succeeded in increasing collaboration and helping teams understand how best to leverage other groups to meet organizational goals. Team coaching is more than facilitation; it trains team members to become more aware and intentional about activities and actions that increase their effectiveness and to notice and eliminate dysfunctional behaviors.
Using methodologies from coaching, action learning, and collaborative problem-solving, we help leadership teams work together more effectively. By the end of a team project, the team has developed the internal expertise that will allow them to continue to grow and improve.
Through peer coaching, we also assist internal coaches in their efforts to increase their expertise and help cross-functional groups learn to support each other in problem solving. Utilizing coaching skills to build internal support and collaboration has made a difference for many organizations.
