How can coaches and practitioners of all types help teams to be resilient in the face of stressors and pressures and be positive in embracing challenge and opportunity?
Developing a team working culture is a goal for many organisations. When teams work, they bring enormous advantage to the organisation, to team members as well as the team in terms of performance, wellbeing, and agility.
This book brings together 40 years of tools, techniques and expertise in team working and adapts these for application through team coaching approaches developed over many years of successful practice. Recognising that team coaching is different from one-to-one coaching, the book uses the mental toughness concept to create a framework for development which addresses key outcomes of performance and wellbeing.
Team Coaching is the very practical coaching guide for developing high performing teams which is accessible to all, experienced coach, and lay practitioner alike.
“I have found it very useful. It takes the reader through the different stages of team coaching, and I particularly liked the reflective questions, the support documents, and it pretty much felt like a step-by-step guide to Team Coaching. It is also very rigorous in terms of the tools and research provided. The handbook is easy to read, and it could appeal to professionals from different backgrounds, such as psychologists, HR professionals and Coaches (who are neither HR professionals nor psychologists!). Another point which I found useful, is that the chapters build up towards how to build resilient teams, it starts with the basics of coaching, team coaching, and ultimately towards mental toughness. I would definitely recommend this handbook to all team coaches, as it is a good refresher on what one needs to look out for, regardless of the type of team being coached, and all practitioners should have a copy of it.” – AliaAl Serkal, Head of People Learning & Growth, Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company
