TEAM COACH - Practitioner course


This intensive, highly practical module builds on the Foundation programme to support coaches in making the transition from coaching individual clients in developing coaching cultures in their team to working with the whole team.

It explores the messiness of working with whole teams and provides practical tools and techniques for enabling the team to understand and change its dynamics in ways that increase collective performance and add value to all its stakeholders. The core of the module is the PERILL framework, a complex, adaptive systems perspective that allows the team to understand its drivers and barriers to performance.

The module works step by step through each phase of a team coaching assignment, from Scoping and Discovery, through Contracting, Delivery, Evaluation and Withdrawal (when the team is better able to coach itself). The case study follows each stage, giving you opportunities to practice new tools and techniques and to develop your own templates and unique approaches. This the second of three courses within our Team Coaching Programme, leading onto Senior Practitioner level.
