Team coaching is rapidly gaining traction as a powerful tool for helping leadership teams improve performance. It has wider application however, for all kinds of teams, at all levels in an organization. Most large organizations have invested in coaching individuals. Increasingly, however, it is recognized that the performance issues of both organizations and individuals are systemic. As the bridge between individual and organizational learning, teams are the most practical unit to integrate individual and systemic perspectives, to manage the complexity of co-working, and to respond to the shifting needs of organizations. While it is not surprising that team coaching has emerged as a growing practice, experience in the field suggests that coaches are adapting approaches to meet this demand with mixed success. To step up into this considerably more complex and arguably more demanding arena, team coaches need to have a good understanding not only of coaching basics, but of team dynamics and team psychology, of collective decision making, of systems theory and a variety of other relevant topics.
