Join author of Effective Group Coaching, (Wiley, 2010) and From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching (Jossey-Bass, 2013) for some high-impact work with your teams. Delivering intensive, customized team coaching programs, we work with teams who want to:
  • Accelerate productivity and performance
  • Navigate Change more easily
  • Explore and leverage the unique strengths, styles and capabilities of the team
  • Create more trust and stronger relationships
  • Enhance teamwork (communication, ability to have difficult conversations, clearer direction or roles)
  • Increase positivity and the quality of relationships amongst team members
  • Create a shared vision and values framework
  • Create team agreements, supporting shared behavioral practices in navigating ongoing change and difficult conversations
  • Expand their leadership capacity and impact
  • Create accountability for their results
  • Start their history as a team from a place of WOW!

The impact of these changes leads to enhanced business and team productivity, positivity and performance.

We work with teams that are just forming, as well as teams that have been functioning for years. Team coaching may be appropriate when:
  • New teams are forming (intact, virtual or project teams)
  • New leadership comes on board
  • Project Teams in pre-kickoff, during implementation, or when they hit a roadblock
  • Role Changes are required because of organizational change
  • Teams are operating in silos
  • It's time for a team tune up
  • Virtual Teams exist
  • Organizations wish to be proactive, investing in their teams to keep them at the extraordinary level.
Team Coaching sessions may be held as intensive 0.5 - 3 day in person offsite programs with follow on coaching, or shorter sessions scheduled over several months, either in person or by phone. We are based out of Toronto, Canada and are available to deliver programs across North America, Europe and the Caribbean through our network. Virtual Team Coaching programs can also be delivered for your team by phone or webinar. We also continue to offer high impact organizational and  team retreats.
