What is team coaching?
ICF defines Team Coaching as partnering in a co-creative and reflective process with a team and its dynamics and relationships in a way that inspires them to maximize their abilities and potential in order to reach their common purpose and shared goals.
Team coaching vs. group coaching. What is the difference between team coaching and group coaching?
As it can be observed from the definition, what makes team coaching different from group coaching is the fact that a team has a common purpose and a shared goal, whereas a group might have similar interests, but different goals.
For example, a team inside an organization works towards the same goal and in accordance with a common framework and common standards. The people that are part of the group do not necessarily know each other and they could attend for example a group coaching session on career or health, but each individual’s goal with the session is different. Below you will find more details about the role of the coach in team coaching which will further clarify what to expect from team coaching.
How is team coaching different than individual coaching?
According to ICF, an essential difference is of course the nature of the client which in the context of team coaching is not represented by individuals, but by the team itself as an entity, that is made up of multiple individuals. Although a coach does not need new competencies in order to coach a team, there are some new sub-competencies necessary in order to be an efficient team coach.
What does a team coach do?
When working with teams, ICF advises that the coach should have a broader understanding on power dynamics inside a team, know how to detect and handle conflict, understand what high performing teams require, be able to strengthen team cohesion, establish rules, make sure every team member contributes and to nurture team autonomy.
Team coaching is part of the broader domain of team development which also includes team training, team consulting, team building, team facilitation and team mentoring which differ from one another depending on the time frame, process, growth area, how conflict and team dynamics are handled and who is the expert.
In the case of team coaching the expert is of course the team, team dynamics and conflict are essential and the growth area is represented by the team sustainability and the achievement of the team goal.
