Team coaching is often viewed by HR professionals as meeting talent development and leadership development goals. This presentation highlights the necessity for targeted efforts to develop teams’ capacities as systems within the organizational system to drive results. Much of the expertise on team coaching within the HR field focuses on team building retreats, or leadership development with team leaders which may result in “feel good” or “personal skill development” but does not necessarily and predictably enhance business results.

Presenter will highlight the business case for Team Coaching as a Business Strategy and a model of team assessment and coaching intervention focusing on two dimensions will be presented: the dimension of positivity which focuses on the interpersonal dynamic of team and, equally, productivity dimension which focuses the team’s capabilities to enhance productivity. The model is research-based through the University of Minnesota and assessment tools are valid and reliable measures of predictability of high performance.
