Generative team coaching evokes a deeper understanding of the interpersonal dynamics and patterns in ways of working that block creativity, learning, and producing new and more original results. That’s why the changes that occur through team coaching sustain a new level of high performance and contribution.
A generative approach for teams orients to what the enterprise expects a team to deliver. What is central in all team coaching interactions are processes that evoke clarity about the team’s shared purpose and create awareness for how team member unique strengths and the integration of those into a set of collective strengths, generates productivity and effectiveness.
A generative team coaching intervention accelerates getting work accomplished by removing interference that arises from invisible cultural norms, reliance on historical habits and preferences that no longer support the current environment and exploration of bias that limits perceiving potential let alone opportunities for ingenuity.
To become self-revealing and self-regulating, the team must learn to perceive what motivates their thinking, feeling, intuiting, sense-making and ultimately outward communicating with each other and the enterprise. Data driven awareness builds about how the collective of members influence their stakeholders and are in turn influenced. This supports teams to focus development in the areas of best potential given their shared purpose. Various assessments are deployed to establish a character and activity baseline for the team that may be used to also measure progress over time.
