How we work with teams

The skills you need, when you need them.

When high performance matters, learning needs to take place in real time – not just when you can find time.

Workplaces are becoming more dynamic and less uniform.

That means people need to make more situational decisions, collaborate across more teams, work in more ambiguous contexts, rely on experience and judgement rather than set procedures, be comfortable – and resilient – with change, and contribute to  an ever-evolving organisation.

Imagine how productive and effective your teams could be if they have continuous access to a workplace growth coach.

Clarify and sense-check ideas, presentations, insights, etc. before putting them forward.

Get advice for handling difficult situations and test run approaches to build skill and confidence.

Improve the effectiveness of inter- and cross-team relationships.

Identify and address skill in real time and be prepared for any situation.

Get an objective perspective on performance and opportunities how to enhance them.

How growth coaching works:

  1. You select individuals/teams to participate. You propose umbrella outcomes to be achieved. Individual/teams give their input to these outcomes. Umbrella outcomes are set and agreed.
  2. Participants drive their own coaching schedule. Coaching takes place through meetings and/or calls/online sessions that typically run for 40 minutes.
  3. We check in with participants weekly, whether or not a coaching session took place during the week. We will use these check-ins to identify tools that will help participants gain insights to their behaviours and performance, for example, Myer-Briggs Type Indicator and Big Five Personality (note the tools are used for participants to build insight, not categorise them).
  4. We can incorporate group workshops to help connect participants’ capabilities with organisational priorities.
  5. The minimum coaching period per individual/team is three months.

Important points to note:

  • Everything discussed with participants and that we hear about your organisation, will remain strictly confidential. For the program to yield results, participants must be assured their confidentiality is protected at all times.
  • We record only enough information from coaching sessions to track our work with participants. We are happy to share general insights and observed trends with you, but will not disclose any information that identifies a person or group unless they permit us to do so.
  • If we have difficulty engaging with participants, for example, repeatedly missed sessions, we will recommend they speak to you about withdrawing from the program. We will not report this to you directly as that would undermine the integrity of a program intended to skill and empower people for a dynamic work environment. Coaching works best when people are ready, so we have no problem revising our arrangements. We can discuss how you would like to re-allocate unused weeks, whether to extend other participants or add new participants (who will then be subject to the three-month minimum commitment).

How our coaches coach.

While sessions are focused on the participants’ self-identified needs, coaches will provide structure through a process proven to build confidence and proficiency.
