Delivered in collaboration with the NHS South West Leadership Academy and David Clutterbuck, delivered virtually via Zoom.

Team coaching is the fastest growing area of coaching. This powerful two-module programme is for you, if you want to:

  • Have a much bigger impact through your coaching.
  • Radically uplift your one-to-one coaching with a deeper understanding of teams as systems nested within systems.
  • Feel more confident helping teams and their leaders to engage with their systems.

Target Audience:

This programme is open to experienced coaches who hold a coaching qualification. Additionally we are looking for individuals who also have experience in facilitating teams of people within their system and/or organisation who can influence and impact the ‘scale-up’ of the programme moving forward.

This programme is split into two modules. Delegates are expected to attend both modules.

Expectations – Post Programme:

We want to stay connected with delegates to understand how they’re applying their learning and evaluate the overall success of the programme. Therefore we will require a commitment from all successful candidates to participate in post-programme activities. This will include peer learning events and ongoing Team Coaching Supervision (dates TBC). As such, it is important that anyone who wishes to apply for the programme is fully aware of the expectations both during and after the two modules.

Team Coaching Programme Details

Team Coaching Foundation

This three-day programme provides experienced coaches and leaders with a pragmatic and evidence-based understanding of the dynamics of teams and teaming. For coaches, it lays the foundations for step one of a journey into team coaching – building on their one to one coaching experience to support a team leader in creating a coaching culture and/or providing support to an experienced team coach coaching both the team and leader together.

Monday 12th September – Day 1 explores teams and their systems and introduced the concept of PERILL– the first complex, adaptive systems framework to understand the complexities of performance in teams.

Monday 10th October – Day 2 investigates the role of the leader in creating and sustaining a coaching culture within their team

Monday 7th November – Day 3 looks at the role of the coach in supporting leaders in creating a coaching culture.

The programme is supported by an extensive manual, toolkit and access to the online Coaching and Mentoring Resource. Participants also receive a copy of Powerful questions for Team Coaches. The core text for the programme is Coaching the Team at Work (Clutterbuck, 2019)

Upon completion of the module, participants can apply for EMCC team coach accreditation at Foundation level.

Total commitment hours: 38 hours (classroom hours, practice within the group, further reading and reflections)

Team Coaching Practitioner Programme

This three-day programme equips a coach or leader to facilitate a team coaching intervention from start to finish. The programme establishes a framework for an effective team coaching intervention, including how to decide whether team coaching is the appropriate application. Using a detailed case study, it progresses through the stages of Exploration and Discovery, Scoping and Contracting, Preparing the team for engagement with the coaching process, Conducting effective team coaching sessions, Transferring process ownership to the team, Measurement and Review and finally Disengagement. We also role play making a pitch for a team coaching assignment.

Participants receive extensive additional materials to the Foundation manual, including the PERILL diagnostic. An on-line version of the diagnostic will be available and participants will have free access to use this for two teams over the subsequent 12 months.

Upon completion of the module, participants can apply for EMCC team coach accreditation.
