Team Coach – Senior Practitioner course


This intensive, highly practical module builds on the Foundation and Practitioner programmes to continue coaches’ journeys into becoming effective team coaches. It greatly enhances the coach’s toolkit and equips them to take the lead in team coaching pairs, confidently working with increasing levels of complexity to help teams strengthen all elements of the PERILL framework.

The emphasis of this programme is upon using participants’ current experience of teams they are working with as the basis for developing a broader portfolio of approaches and increasing their confidence in coping with challenging situations. A minimum of two client teams will be required for you to be actively practising during the program. This is the third of three courses within our Team Coaching Programme, with a strong emphasis on building a unique, evidence-based practice through development of both theory and practice. The programme is offered in two formats: Traditional classroom style with two three-day workshops separated by eight to ten months of practice and reflection. OR fifteen virtual modules and accompanying Practicums.

Our approach to team coaching is based upon more than 20 years of research into the factors that influence how teams adapt to increasingly complex environments. Our Foundation, Practitioner and Senior Practitioner courses are accredited by both ICF and EMCC. They incorporate the PERILL model – the only complex, adaptive system approach to understanding the factors that influence a team’s performance.


  • Our programs are designed to be flexible in their delivery. Generally we offer:
  • 15 x 2-hour virtual sessions, over a 14-month period plus self-study, reflection, practice with teams and supervision.
  • 2 x 3-day face to face programmes, plus self-study, reflection, practice with teams and supervision.
  • Typical course size – 12 to 24 delegates (or 24 delegates per Practicum for larger virtual courses)
  • Five sessions of group supervision are included in the course fees, in groups of maximum 8 people
  • Individual & Group Reflection
  • Coursework: Reflective assignment

Action learn sets (practicums) bridge the gaps between virtual sessions and between the in-person workshops.

Total Commitment Hours:

Usually completed over 12 -14 months and 3 terms, the 501 hours in total are made up of 60 hours of training,  80 hours of reading (theory and models), 80 hours of case study and research project preparation, with the remainder split across planning and practice with your teams, private and group study, reflection and the assignment. Please note that you are required to practise with at least 2 teams and a general expectation of 4 sessions per team to be accredited.

As a broad outline, we spend approximately 40% teaching theories and models, 30% in co-learning (discussions, questions, breakouts) and 30% in  learning and practicing tools & techniques.
