Team Coaching...

If you have a job, you’ll be part of a team. Your team may be small, it may be big. It may be a leadership team, it may be a project team.

Whatever the nature of the team, would you say it’s high performing?

Team dysfunction and toxic environments result in unhappiness, high stress, poor health and mental wellbeing, poor performance, high attrition and poor outcomes. It’s a high price to pay.

It is vital in today’s VUCA world to put time and energy into developing an environment which creates the conditions that are essential for high performance and happy people. The resulting culture is something that will attract top talent to your organisation.

Are you struggling with agility within your team or organisation?

This might show up as:

  • An uncertainty on how to go about ‘becoming agile’ across the organisation, or progressing to the ‘next level’.
  • Strategies are unclear or there are too many or conflicting strategic priorities across the organisation.
  • Not addressing pan-organisational hierarchical structures and ways of working, which may be becoming inefficient and outdated, resulting in your inability to quickly and flexibly meet the rapidly changing shape and needs of your environment, be it from the customer, regulator, competitors etc.
  • Teams adopting agile ways of working but not quite delivering the value for customers at the velocity originally agreed with business sponsors, which may adversely impact rollout of strategies and reduce competitiveness.
  • Teams aren’t very good at estimating and forecasting, or retrospectives have become ineffective because your team are too focussed on looking back, or they aren’t addressing dysfunction even if small, or there are too many time-wasting handoffs to other teams, or stand-ups have stagnated, or velocity of value delivery isn’t increasing or is badly measured, if at all, or a product owner is nowhere to be seen, or the team has inadequate tooling, or not given sufficient time or funding to adopt great tooling…
  • Emphasis is being placed on delivery of value at all costs, but at the detriment of people’s happiness, career progression, a sense of fulfilment and purpose, resulting in high rates of staff attrition and the associated costs – which are not just monetary.
