Product Description

group and team coaching
Group and team coaching – We know that you as an individual have lots of potentials which are not identified, developed, and unleashed. The same is true of groups. It is true of most organizational boards, it is true of most departments, it is true of most associations, it is even true of families. In fact groups of people not only have all of the untapped potentials within each of the individuals that make up the group, they also have the systemic or gestalt potentials that could potentially come together to create more intelligence, more productivity, more learning, higher level performance and spirit than merely the sum of the parts.

Leading thinkers in organizational development, management, leadership, coaching, and business have noted for years that most groups inside of organizations are not only not producing their highest and best-they are dysfunctional. They are operating at a level lower than the combination of the parts. They are actually limiting and diminishing the possibilities of the people within the organization. It is the rare and unique organization that is able to identify, develop, and release the potentials of their people and even more rare for an organization to be truly a self-actualizing organization in that they identify, develop, and release the potentials of their groups and teams. By identifying a checklist of operating behaviours that reflects or indicates dysfunctions, then as a group coach, you can pinpoint specific actions that group members do which lead in the wrong way.

7 Reasons Why You Should Attend Group & Team Coaching Training

If you work with groups of people as a leader, a manager, a consultant or in some other role then there are some very important reasons why you should attend The Coaching Centre on Group and Team Coaching.

1) Discover how to manage a Future which will be characterized by Groups.
The day of the Lone Ranger Leader is over. Actually, it has been over for a long time. The primitive idea of the “strong man” military leader telling people what to think, what to do, how to shape up, etc. does not fit the twenty-first century. Already leading companies are eliminating management levels and turning over manage to teams— self-managing teams.

2) Learn how to Provide the Guidance that Groups Need.
We are a social species, we always have been, and the greatest inventions have always occurred in groups. Creativity and innovation occurs best in groups where diversity is embraced and utilized. But, and this is a big but, most groups leash this power and do not know how to unleash it. That’s where you come in!

3) Develop the Skills to Handle Group Dysfunctions.
Most groups (boards, committees, project groups, meetings, etc.) do not know how to tap into and release their potentials. Most are dysfunctional. Groups have the potential be smarter than the most intelligent persons in the group; but groups can also dumb down the intelligence of the group members. Groups can suffer from groupthink, dogmatism, ingrown turf protection of the status quo, etc.

4) Discover How to Unleash People’s Best Potentials within a Healthy Group.
When a group taps into the governing group dynamics that frees people to be more creative, innovative, and passionate about a vision— that group can become a “home” for the unleashing of individual potentials. But it takes skillful leadership to facilitate such.

5) Lead and Manage People’s Extended Consciousness in a Group.
When a group is well lead and managed, the people in the group can experience higher level experiences— they can think together, they can learn together, they can create together, they can decide together, and they can perform together as a team. When this comes together in a company, that company generally zooms ahead in their industry and becomes great company and an industry leader.

6) Develop the Skills for Leading a Group in Productive Conflict.
The differences that can make a group a dynamic creative team can also create hellish misery and torment. What’s required is an informed and skilled leader who can facilitate effective ground rules and co-invent with everyone a supportive culture for the group to work within.

7) Develop the Competence for being a Collaborative Leader.
The ultimate in leadership is collaborative leadership— leading with others. Such co-leading is best learned in the context of group.

Group To Team

Why? The power and potential of groups: never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens could change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Furthermore, every business is, by definition, a group. Therefore the success of every business is dependent upon the effectiveness of how people “group.”
Do they know how to form and operate as an effective work group? Do they know how to communicate openly, clearly, and efficiently? Do they know how to develop the right attitude as a team member? Do they know how to work through problems together? Or are they plagued with the common dysfunctions of groups: competing with each other rather than collaborating, keeping secrets, playing politics, undermining with gossip and negativity, etc.?
Most groups are simply not effective. And time is wasted in the groups going over petty and superficial issues. Time is wasted on meetings that are irrelevant or boring. Therefore those leading the meetings don’t seem to know how to effectively lead them, inspire people, coordinate activities, and bring out the best in every contributing member. That’s the bad news.

The Good News

So the good news is that groups can become highly effective teams. It is not an easy or quick solution, but the solution is available for anyone who wants to learn the core competencies that are required. If people can work together effectively and efficiently, the business succeeds in productivity and profit. If not, the business may not even survive. The benefits that result from having effective groups and teams are many: smoother coordination of efforts, greater precision and clarity of communication, so less mis-communication, greater creativity and innovation, increased sense of responsibility, the synergy of people working as a unified team, improved team spirit, sense of pride in being part of a winning team, and so on.

 Effective Group Development

Hence, with Group and Team Coaching; to address the fact that most teams are dysfunctional, our focus is to facilitate effective group development by identifying the individual psychology of group members, then the group psychology that shows up as group dynamics, then the actual skills a leader or group coach needs.

Core Meta-Coaching Skills

group and team coaching
Finally, these skills involve both the developing of the group and the trouble-shooting of the problems that undermine the group. And the list of group coaching skills (which are all leadership skills) include the seven core skills that we train in Meta-Coaching:
Active Listening and Support,
Deep Exploring via Questioning and Meta-Questioning,
Mirror via Receiving and Giving Feedback,
and State Induction.

Additionally we add: Framing, Group Functioning, Group Leadership, Meeting Management, and so on. The group coach/leader will have to know and be able to recognize the group communication dynamics, the factors which undermine and sabotage a group, the leverage points of transformation.

In managing group dynamics, the effective coach/leader has to be effective in challenging and confronting. And to coach a group of individuals to become an effective work group or further, an effective cohesive team requires coaching skills taken to a higher level of working with the structural processes whereby multiple individuals can learn to think together, learn together, decide together, and then act together. Most noteworthy, this is the overall content of the GTMC Certification. Currently we have a two-phase training

Trust Spiral

So, Three Days of Group & Team Coaching Training. The first days focus is on group dynamics -How a group forms, norms, storms, and performs.
Additionally, how groups have to negotiate the twin-demands of group nourishing and group tasking. And how groups negotiate the trust spiral to move from a group of individuals to a work group and then to a team. Rather than ignore what is typically needed we provide training for how groups handle conflict, deal with team dysfunctions, challenge group members, etc. And lots of group experiences to try out the skills in actual groups.

Janette Watson – Jannei Goat Dairy
I find Shawn is good at valuing each person’s input in the meeting and transfers this into looking forward and positively at the task ahead. He was great at breaking through mental blocks as well and presenting disharmonious (or conflicting opinions) as a positive and something to use to solve problems in the business
