“With four different generations working together in an ever-changing digital environment, it has never been more crucial to step up how we communicate and unify through one clear vision.”

Team Coaching consists of a series of interventions which help individuals work better together. Organisational transformation, however, begins with personal transformation: it is only once individuals know themselves that they can truly understand their contributions to the wider organisation.

The starting point of a Team Coaching intervention is therefore to work on each of its members’ self-leadership skills, identifying their core strengths and qualities, values and purpose, before moving on to how they contribute to their teams and organisations.

There are several types of Team coaching Interventions. Some of the most commonly used ones are:

• Self-leadership: developing key leadership skills among the team, beginning with the individuals’ personal values and behaviours

• Improve communication, working relationships, and trust

• Increase the sense of shared vision and mission of the team

• Enable team to align their value and behaviours with the organisation’s

  • Process

    Natalia specialises in developing and delivering tailor-made Team Coaching programmes. The process is as follows:
    • Briefing: The context for Team Coaching is discussed with key stakeholders, from team objectives to current values and team dynamics. The stakeholders agree on expectations and benefits.
    • Diagnostic: The purpose of the Diagnostic phase is to assess the gap between where the team currently is and the desired state in terms of performance, ways of working, dynamics and goals. This will typically involve one-to-one interviews and team questionnaires. Personality and behaviour tools such as MBTI may be used to gain a better understanding of team members' preferences, behaviours and how they interact. Finally, the 360 degree feedback process is also a valuable method to understand unspoken team dynamics.
    • Design: Natalia creates a tailor-made programme which will enables the team to get as close as possible to its desired state. A Team Contract will be put together to set out the metrics and how the programme's success can be evaluated at both the individual and team level. The areas of focus and commitment for the sessions will also be determined at this stage.
    • Delivery: The delivery of Team Coaching programmes can take different forms. It might be a residential programme, where the team can focus exclusively on its own development, or it might be an on-site programme. Powerful psychometric instruments such as MBTI can be applied to raise team members' awareness of different working styles and behaviours. A series of experimental team activities can also be used to reveal dynamics and patterns within the team. By the end of this phase, the goal is for the team to be completely aligned on the key actions they need to take in order to achieve their desired outcome.
    • Follow up & Review: Team interventions are normally followed up by team or individual coaching to help them progress towards individual and collective action-planning.
