What is team coaching?

What is team coaching? Team coaching is collaborating successfully and coming to self-development. Some teams or boards develop into a close partnership that achieves top performances. Other groups fall apart arguing before the finish line (the team result) is even in sight. In those cases, team coaching is a good intervention.

To improve the efficiency and collaboration of a team, we Muriel Schrikkema - What is Team Coachinglook at various factors during team coaching, such as:

  • The phase and group dynamics of the team or management as an entity.
  • The management and leadership qualities of each individual in the team and of the team as a whole. Where do we complement each other? What do we appreciate in each other? What do we miss?
  • The efficiency of a team in terms of mission, goals, tasks/roles, working procedures/agreements, and mutual relationships.

Muriel Schrikkema - What is Team CoachingTeam coaching first ensures awareness of your own role within the team, the mutual dynamics, and renewed energy to work on improvement together. The mutual relationships become visible, individual motives are discussed, and appreciation for each other’s qualities is discussed. Then, the next step in team coaching follows: working on the identified points together as a team.

For over twenty years, Muriel Schrikkema has been working on this awareness and these insights based on teamwork within many organizations, including ABN Amro, municipality of Maastricht, Hands on IT, Wageningen University & Research, and NIBC. Methods used include the feedforward analysis™, RealDrives, and the HPO Framework.
