Course Language: English  

Now more than ever, organizations are looking at how to motivate and manage their teams in a period of change and uncertainty. Case studies have proven that high performing teams have a greater impact on results and that team coaching helps create high performing teams.

Our 3-day certification program is for experienced coaches, leaders, managers, and organizational consultants, who want to help raise the bar in team performance. The time is ripe in organizational development to differentiate team coaching from other forms of team or group development and to extend the definition and body of theory and practice of team coaching.

This 3-day International Systemic Team Coaching course is for executive coaches, organizational consultants, leaders, managers, human resource professionals, and anyone seeking to develop a team coaching perspective of teams.

Why become certified in systemic team coaching?

Systemic team coaching is the next big step in helping companies lift their team performance. But what is team coaching and how is it different from coaching individual team members, team facilitation, team building, team development or action learning sets can only be explained in our 3-day program.

From the coaching/consulting point of view, a key component of our approach is seeing the team as the client and viewing individual members – including the leader, as a subset of that client system. This makes contracting for confidentiality an interesting, delicate, and controversial subject.

From the leadership and management perspective, we place a lot of emphasis on stakeholder engagement, internally and externally as well as paying attention to the wider environmental context – the systemic context that effects team performance.
