Leadership Team Coaching For Sustainable High Performance
Many of the teams I coach are full of talented individuals but they haven’t learnt to work together to get even better results. Building a team takes time and effort and outside help is often needed. Through leadership team or Board coaching the individuals come together and start to provide effective collective leadership, create a joined up organisation, stay relevant and deliver sustainable high performance.
The effort put into this is rewarded through:-
A shared purpose which enhances engagement and satisfaction which, according to Chartered Institute of Personnel Development research, improves output.
A greater sense of belonging, commitment and accountability, which results in better quality of work life; reduced absenteeism and turnover; improved productivity and quality. All of which mean more satisfied stakeholders and adding greater value to the business.
Improved innovation through a willingness to accept difference, openness to new ideas and higher levels of adaptability. In this way the team role models a willingness to change and transform to the organisation thus enabling it to adapt more quickly and remain competitive
All of which have a positive impact on the bottom line. High performing teams improve the contribution the team makes to the organisation through both its own performance and its positive ripple effect on the rest of the organisation.
“Your interventions and support on an individual and team level have been instrumental in our team’s journey. Much of the progress we have made is due to your support and we are moving from a potential to a real team with growth beyond.” – Global HR Director, Global Chemical Group.
How I Can Help Coach Your Team
Through team coaching I help teams:-
Identify what is holding them back
Co-create a team development journey to overcome these blocks
Create an environment of trust where conversations are open and honest and difference is valued
Get clarity on their shared vision and purpose, their roles, priorities and goals
Develop a team culture and team processes which encourage accountability and support high performance
Engage with stakeholders to ensure they continue to meet their needs
Grow ahead of the organisation so they stay relevant and can meet its future needs
Put in place strong foundations so new members can be easily integrated
My approach to team coaching is:-
Real – it is applied to real situations and includes real time coaching/observation.
Integrated & works with the team both as a collective and as individuals.
Systemic – it situates your collective leadership in the context of the wider system and your impact on key stakeholders.
Expectations – includes a measurement process that tracks your desired changes and outcomes to ensure a return on expectations for the team, its key stakeholders and the organisation.
“The Commercial benefits are many – better customer service to our internal customers, higher productivity and preparedness to move to more efficient ways of working. What’s more we are seen as a role model for the rest of the organisation and our Employee Engagement score has improved from 71% to 80% due in no small part to the team coaching.”– Group HR Director Airport Group.

It’s the end of the week. Taking a look at her action list, Operations Director Frazzled Freda notices it’s not got any shorter.

In the second of my blogs about finding your identity as a leader, I want to talk about confidence. Something recently-promoted Operations Director Frazzled Freda had in abundance in her former lead scientist role, but which seems to be eluding her in her new position. What’s gone wrong? Let’s take a look back at Freda’s…
