As the saying goes "you can lead a horses to water but you can't make them drink". Or, as a very popular NZ band sing "I can give you some wings and advice but that ain't gonna make you fly". In team coaching, this holds very true. Despite all the good will, support and great tools in the world, sometimes the team just aren't ready. One of the core roles of a team coach is to assess team readiness. And if they aren't ready, work with them to get them to a point where they are...

If you would like to find out more about how your team can prepare to fly, please get in touch.

The concepts of trust (truth and reliability between individuals) and psychological safety (freedom to share opinions and ideas within a team) seem to be everywhere right now. Everyone wants to be nice to their team mates right? But if we are too nice, we might not say what needs to be said, contribute ideas, disagree with consensus and hold each other to account. The result is a happy team that doesn't deliver their potential. Strong trust and psychological safety build the tight rope between delivery and kindness.

If you would like to know more about trust and psychological safety, please get in touch (btw, no elephants were harmed in the creation of this graphic).

More than half way through a Team Coaching Senior Practitioner course, and very proud to be learning from the best on the globe in this field Prof David Clutterbuck Tammy Turner, MCC, Master EIA and ITCA, GISA Craig McKenzie.

In addition to learning a lot and keeping very good company, I am also applying/practicing my strengths of: curiosity, holistic thinking, intellect and creativity. It’s so exciting and satisfying at the same time. Call me crazy but, I'm in my happy place!

However, I know hard core learning is not for everyone. If you would like to find out more about how you can tap into your happy place at work, or you would like to know more about team coaching, please get in touch. I would love to chat.
