What is Team Performance Coaching?
External challenges should be where most of your team resources go – connecting with customers, capitalizing on market trends, staying ahead of the competition, creative problem solving, etc. Your team cannot do that well if the bulk of their energy is focused on internal challenges – distrust, ineffective meetings, miscommunication, lack of engagement, lack of motivation, etc.

Q & A: Let’s unleash the human power of your teams and strengthen BIG PICTURE outcomes.
How can you coach a team for high performance?
The best leaders often see themselves as coaches. A coach is always watching for untapped strengths, looking for areas to strengthen, being open with people about what needs work, guiding them to become their best, is mindful of interpersonal relationships within the team, and so on.
Most importantly, a coach does this with compassion, courage and even vulnerability. Even difficult conversations come from a place of empathy and wanting others to succeed and thrive. A coach is never the star, but is often the true MVP of a high performing team.
As a leader, understanding how to coach a team for high performance starts with doing the inner work to fully understand and accept your own unique strengths, passions and areas for growth. We can only lead from where we are. When you do the work to lead yourself with full acceptance, compassion, courage and clarity, you become the kind of leader that can coach others to greatness.
How can coaches improve team performance?
A professional coach can help in different ways, depending on the needs and goals of your team or organization. The most impactful way is often through coaching your leadership team to become coaches within the company, so that you are able to create a global coaching culture that is fully energized towards growth – growth of your people and teams, so that they can grow your business.
Coaches can also work directly with your team members to uncover unique strengths and bring them forward, as well as do the deep work of uncovering the root causes of any struggles or perceived limitations within the team or organization.
When a team and its leadership do the hard work to embrace understanding without judgement, see growth opportunities instead of limitations, and have the difficult conversations that need to be had, nothing is allowed to fester and become a bottleneck. Work, ideas and communication flow smoothly, while performance and engagement skyrocket.
What is the purpose of this style of workplace coaching?

What is high performance coaching in business?
Almost everyone within your organization has it in them, right now, to be a high performing member of your team who delivers incredible results and is a key contributor to the success of their team and the organization overall. High performance coaching, like team performance coaching, unleashes that potential to strengthen your organization by strengthening the people within it.
Each team member has an impact on the performance of the team overall. That influence can be positive, or negative. By beginning with the individual self, by building confidence and reinforcing the natural strengths and talents of each member, the whole team can then be strengthened, aligning all those strengths and talents with the team goals and values to create incredible big picture outcomes for the organization.
