What is Systemic Team Coaching?


As a systemic team coach I am able to draw upon a range of approaches to form a programme of work in which I partner with you and your team over a period of time, working with your whole team both when you are together and when you are apart.

This process will enable your team to:

  • Align on its common purpose

  • Collaborate and learn across diversity

  • Develop collective leadership

  • Achieve performance objectives

  • Effectively engage with its stakeholder groups

  • Jointly transform the wider business


How is the approach systemic?


Image result for 6 lenses of systemic team coaching The term 'Systemic' refers to the multi-layered perspective that I can help your team to develop of the context it works within. By viewing the team through these 6 lenses, I can adapt and flex my coaching approach in order to provide the greatest value to your team.


What is the process?

I work systematically and in partnership with you, using the following process:

  1. Scoping and building relationships with the sponsor and team leader.

  2. Inquiring into the team and its systemic context.

  3. Developing the team coaching agenda, collaboratively with the team leader and the team. Contracting for the work.

  4. Implementation and engagement - coaching to fulfill the coaching agenda.

  5. Review, evaluation and learning.


Team Connect 360

Team Connect 360 image 

This unique 360 feedback tool quickly and efficiently generates insights into how a team is perceived, both by its stakeholders and by members of the team itself. The results of Team Connect 360 are automatically collated into a clear and easily understood report, enabling a team and their coach to identify topics on which they can focus in a team coaching programme.

Feedback is gathered online (the site can be accessed through a PC, tablet or smartphone). The questions and report are designed around Professor Peter Hawkins’ Five Disciplines model and cover:

  • Stakeholder Expectations – what the team is required to deliver
  • Team Tasks – what the team does to meet those expectations
  • Team Relationships – the interpersonal and group dynamics
  • Stakeholder Relationships – how the team connects with those it serves
  • Learning  – how the team develops to meet future challenges
  • Productivity – the team’s capacity to deliver
