Team Coaching

Coaching for sustained improvement to team performance 

I believe that teams are the units of organisation intelligence. When teams work well inside and out the organisation is on course for high impact. My work with your team goes beyond team building. Together we examine the eco-system in which your team must perform, develop, learn and grow to do its best. At TopHat, we use coaching to deliver sustained improvement to team performance.

The Cost of Poor Performance

According to the Chartered Management Institute, (Management Manifesto 2017) poor management is costing our economy dearly: £84bn in lost productivity to be exact.  At the heart of this are low levels of trust and engagement.  

As all work takes place in teams that must function effectively and efficiently, investing in sustained improvement of your team seems to be a no brainer. Coaching is cost effective as all participants develop trust and confidence as the process develops and own the solutions they develop.

Defining High Performance

Peter Hawkins, renowned scholar and coach defines excellent leadership teams by asking a set of questions that can be applied to all teams:

      • Is the purpose of your team’s work clear and understood consistently?
      • Is your team clear what it can do together that it cannot do apart?
      • How does your team have a clear way of working to generate ideas and challenge effectively?
      • When the individuals in your team represent the whole team do they do so effectively?
      • How does your team learn, reflect and develop?

Whats stopping you?

We know that sustained improvement in and between teams is crucial to effective business performance. However work pressure, turnover, change and the fear of uncomfortable confrontations can mean we muddle through and hope for the best. 

With TopHat your team will have a short series of interactive sessions that will be fun and sometimes challenging. I will support the team to open up their communication and identify the assumptions that create barriers to successful work and build new ways of working together.
