The aim of team coaching is to support a team in understanding, establishing and optimising collective operational procedures. It takes into account people as individuals as well as the group or its sub-groups as a whole. The objective is to further develop the group’s maturity, i.e. to increase its ability to work as a team towards a common goal.
The role of the team coach is similar to that of the individual coach in that he will act as guide to the team and encourage them to take a step back from the processes at play in the group. His effectiveness will lie in his ability to ask questions and to use the mirror effect to make the team focus on what is happening “in the moment" at group level.
