Turning strangers into colleagues
Be the leader that brings out the best in your team
Through team coaching, I work closely with leaders to help existing teams overcome blockages and to promote more open and productive conversations.
Out of productive conversations, come good ideas, decisions, and clear direction. Common issues that I deal with include:
Accelerating the integration of a new team, or introducing new members to an existing team. I run sessions about the stages of team development and how to move smoothly through them.
Defining a common vision that is compelling for each individual and aligned with the organisation – this leads to more motivation, sense of purpose and commitment.
Identifying and working with the skills, strengths and talents of each individual. This is of value to the team because they can pull from each other’s strengths. It is also of personal value for each member. You may choose to include personality profiling of team members.
Resolving conflicts that hold back a team’s success. These conflicts may be rooted in the leadership, the individuals or the dynamics of the group.
As a team coach, my expertise lies in identifying and working through these issues with you, so the team can work better, individually and collectively, for the benefit of the organisation.
Organising a team coaching programme
The first step diagnostic phase in which I meet the leader and the team members to learn about their issues. Using those insights, we decide on the team coaching programme that will achieve the goals we have set. To kick-start the process, get in touch.
“… My team was very happy with the team coaching session Marien facilitated, it was really enjoyable and worthwhile. They learnt about their communication styles, strengths and weaknesses, and how to relate to each other to perform at their best.”Richard Stanfield
“When team members understand themselves and each other, they open up.
They work collaboratively as partners in a common cause. They flip from can’t-do to can-do.”
