Session 21: Coaching Team Improvement

Don Gray

Learning new skills and development processes requires time and effort. In the end, we hope for improved productivity. Having someone with experience in the new area coach the team can reduce the time and effort needed to get this improvement.

Coaching has many facets. One part involves facilitation – helping make the change process easier. Another part has coaches giving advice to the team around options the team might consider, but leaves the decision to the team.Occasionally the options advice becomes more guiding suggeting” What would happen if you tried this?” Another part of coaching could be pairing with a team member demonstrating and practicing techniques.

In this session we’ll do exercises exploring the coaching facets and how they affect performance. Participants will learn strategies and actions to add to their coaching toolbox.
