“Organizations need advanced team coaches
who can steer them through periods of transition -
especially in today’s VUCA world.”

-Global Team Coaching Institute

Angel and Deb invite you to consider how Team Coaching will unlock a new paradigm of leadership and teamwork. This is essential for your organisation to succeed in facing current challenges and become “future fit”.

Why Team Coaching

In the words of Professor David Clutterbuck, Co-Dean of the Global Institute of Team Coaching, “...life after Covid; effective teams and teamwork will make the difference between businesses that recover swiftly and prosper – and those that don’t.

(Currently teams are equipped to)... solve immediate, neatly packaged and discrete problems. (Now however) most of the key challenges teams face are longer-term, messy and interconnected.

Team Coaching is the only way we have to help teams work with and thrive on this complexity, to the benefit of both the team members and the team’s stakeholders.”

Prof. David Clutterbuck, GTCI Co-Dean

What is Team Coaching

Unlike one to one coaching, with a single set of eyes and focus, Team Coaching provides TWO sets of eyes, Angel and Deb who have both trained as ‘Co-Coaches’. Their skills and expertise complement each other and create an environment and impact that is greater than the sum of the parts.

Unlike team building, Team Coaching explores issues that relate to collective performance, enabling the team to recognise and manage influences on its performance, now and in the future.

The approach takes a systemic view of the influences, which concerns the team’s internal dynamics and how it is influenced by and interacts with its stakeholders.

Why Team Coaching Is Important

Today’s world is complex, rapidly and constantly changing. We live in VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) times, producing ‘Wicked Problems’ - seemingly unsolvable problems.

To succeed in developing a sustainable and prosperous workplace in these conditions, teams need the ability to create connections on multiple levels and think creatively.

Team Literacy, is now an essential competence for all coaches, team leaders and HR professionals.

Benefits For Your Team

This is a powerful and effective process that will enhance the performance of the members, the leader and the team as a whole, as well as impacting the immediate business and the wider organisation.

Team coaching will enable your team to:
1. Navigate today’s hyper-complex and fast-changing world
2. Develop better processes of decision-making and communicating
3. Improve work organisation
4. Work more effectively with other teams and team members
5. Develop greater clarity of purpose
6. Become “future fit”

To Qualify

To take advantage of this opportunity your team must meet a number of prerequisites:
1. Intact team with objectives and direction
2. Autonomy to implement changes within its jurisdiction
3. Senior management willing to support the team coaching initiative
4. Team size of around 5 and 10 members
5. Team will undergo minimal changes in membership for the duration

Angel and Deb are co-coaches trained to help your team focus on what is important, understand what is helping or hindering their performance and build more effective ways of working for common purpose.

The process is designed to minimize disruption and maximize its effectiveness. For these reasons, you can anticipate no significant risks.
