Creative Team Coaching
Many managers are currently looking for creative team coaching ideas or professional help to bring their team together and rebuild some of the team cohesion that may have been lost or forgotten due to the global pandemic. We all know how working remotely has removed many of our opportunities to simply bump into people at the coffee machine or chat as they wait to go into a meeting room, so the only interaction many people have had recently is within formal meetings.
However, with teams slowly returning to the office and coming together face to face again, now is the time to dust off some of the creative team coaching tools and see what help or support you can offer managers.
Points to consider:
- Approach team coaching through collective motivation and make it fun
- Try something creative that gets the right side of the brain working
- The team is a living system with people who want to contribute and excel
- Gather team commitments and agree an action plan
- Organize half day coaching sessions to minimize scheduling issues
- Use benchmarking tools to measure changes in behavior, productivity and teamworking
- Call out any negative behavior or undelivered actions
In team coaching, your role can be seen as a catalyst for change and collective awareness within the group. So by guiding the team towards more ambitious results, they will normally progress towards greater performance and positive outcomes. However, it is important to learn how to successfully challenge the team, without imposing your desires or agenda, and without pushing or pulling them.
