Leadership Matters Most

As a Marshal Goldsmith Stakeholder Centred Certified Coach, I enable successful leaders to achieve positive and measurable change in leadership behaviour through a proven system for continuous improvement for themselves and their teams.

Leaders drive Culture & Performance. Leadership behaviour impact 50-70% of organizational behaviour. Organisational culture impacts 30-35% of the bottom line of the organisation P&L and the balance sheet. That’s why you need to get it right. Invest in your biggest assets, yourself and your stakeholders.

Team coaching yearlong executive coaching program using Stakeholders Centred Coaching for Guaranteeing and Measurable Leadership Growth

The Team coaching programs have proven to be highly effective and resource efficient in supporting leaders with their leadership growth and improving team effectiveness at the same time. Thus, TEAM coaching engagements create measurable leadership growth for the leader as well as the team using Marshall Goldsmith’s unique Stakeholder Centred Coaching process.

The yearlong TEAM Coaching programs are typically structured as follows (min. 5 members):

  • 2 Days offsite TEAM building & Coaching workshop to initiate the coaching and leadership growth process.
  • 11 Monthly TEAM Coaching and Monthly Action Planning sessions (2 hrs per session). This includes time for focused skill development as it relates to their leadership growth areas. During the coaching sessions the coach who works with every team member individually and/or with the team as a whole (depending on the TEAM program selected).
  • 3 Quarterly Leadership Growth Progress Reviews.

The various TEAM Coaching programs are based on the same highly effective process as the 1 on 1 coaching engagements and have been adapted to fit a team environment and relate team objectives.

Advantages of TEAM Coaching:

  • Changing leaders and teams at the same time

The team articulates one leadership growth area, and each team member defines their own leadership growth area that relates to the team focus. This creates an interdependent team effort with a common focus on producing results for their individual effectiveness and team productivity simultaneously.

  • Insider Expertise

Team members should be able to provide expert advice and an insider view to each other as it relates to their business, their people, and their team culture challenges. They become de facto coaches.

  • Openness to Continuous Change

When team members collaborate as stakeholders in the TEAM coaching programs, it creates an open culture for leadership and team culture change. Furthermore, team members feel comfortable to use feedback and feedforward around the organization to drive change for themselves and their teams.

  • Coaching is a leadership skill

Many organizations use coaching as an ‘executive intervention’ or to ‘fix a problem’, but this is a suboptimal approach to coaching. Coaching is a leadership skill and leaders in organizations should be skilled coaches to help their teams develop and grow. Same as we expect effective leaders to be highly skilled in e.g. communications, decision making and empowerment, leaders should be highly skilled in coaching others. TEAM coaching is a great programme to instil coaching as a leadership skill in the organization.

  • Resource efficient

Since one executive coach works with all team members supporting each other in this TEAM coaching process, the whole coaching program is very time efficient and reduces coaching fees per team member.

As thinking about and intending to change are not the same as actual change in behaviour acknowledge by stakeholders, coaching for leadership growth and team effectiveness is a lot about ‘a disciplined process of implementation’ and not about participating in coaching workshops.

An important part of TEAM coaching is team members supporting each other as stakeholders and coaches, while implementing their action plans to make change visible. Therefore, this programme is ideally suited for leaders and their (cross functional/project) teams to measurably change their individual and collective effectiveness as they lead and develop their teams and direct reports.

Stakeholder Centred Team Coaching engagements can be booked as:

  • One day in-house Workshop 9am-6pm
  • 2-day offsite with 6, 9 or 12month TEAM coaching engagement. Measurable leadership growth is guaranteed with a 12 months engagement.
