The programme is designed to develop practitioner competence and confidence by:
- Challenging and expanding thinking around working with teams;
- Equipping participants with the theory, tools and practical experience needed to develop in this area;
- Increasing confidence and competence in practicing as a team coach, especially in the key areas of contracting and diagnosis;
- Providing significant personal development and a greater understanding of personal ‘ways of being’ with teams, through experiential exercises designed to bring the theory to life ‘in the room’, using the class as a proxy team;
- Creating a network of like-minded and equally well-trained team coaches for support, co-consultancy and learning;
- Professionalising your team coaching practice and setting participants apart in the market, by training with expert team coaches and thought leaders in the field of team coaching.
Delivered over a series of 12 days involving 5 workshops within a 12-month period. 100% attendance is required
Assessments and Workload
The emphasis throughout the programme is on the practical application of knowledge to benefit the participant as a coach and their clients’ teams and organisations. Assignments include an essay, written commentary on a team coaching session and reflective learning journal.
Team Coaching Practice
All participants are also required to complete and log at least 14 hours of team coaching with a real team. Participants will need to source this organisational team before the programme commences and contract with the team so that the team coach can maximise their learning whilst also helping the team achieve its objectives from the coaching.
