Team coaching is one of the fastest-growing disciplines in our profession and an area that the ICF is now offering advanced certification in. Why? Team coaching helps teams establish an inspiring vision, align around a common purpose, create healthy relationships, reach their goals, and so much more.
Our guest today, Helen Mitchell, helps answer such important questions as:
How does team coaching differ from coaching an individual or group?
What are some of the challenges or complexities in coaching and working with a team?
What role does the team leader play in this type of coaching, and what happens when the leader seems to be a part of the problem?
Why do organizations hire coaches to work with their teams?
