Improving Collaboration in the Team through Team Coaching
Whenever people work on a task together, they enter into resonance with each other. Enthusiastic engagement is contagious but so is lack of enthusiasm. People react to working atmosphere, lighting conditions, smells, temperature as well as moods and sensitivities in the team. Everything happens in the context of the whole. Team coaching can help with improving and strengthening the collaboration within the team.
Countless questions arise in groups and teams:
- How does a sense of togetherness develop?
- How is our team cohesion defined and experienced?
- Who identifies with the group, who tends to see themselves as an individual combatant?
- Are there sub-groups in the team?
- Who does more than me, who does less?
- Who has the more exciting tasks, who has to do what others have left undone?
- Am I perceived favourably or do the others turn their eyes away when I approach?
- When is saying “no” important, when should I agree?
Topics in Team Coaching
No, you don’t have to marry your colleague! We are more interested in examining whether the shaping of the relationship pattern has a supportive or a damaging influence on the accomplishment of tasks. For example, if people have a complex task to accomplish, trust is indispensable. However, if you integrate with each other to such a degree that no new ideas can come into play, trust will not help you much. Or, do colleagues go their own way so much that cooperation no longer works? Then it is important to check where trust is lacking. Once all that is clarified, the team can arrive at better options for action.
This is how we help you to improve the collaboration within the team
We understand the interactions of group dynamics and psychodynamics; our perspective helps to recognise patterns, to articulate them and to make sustainable decisions together. We are trained in Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Group Dynamics and Hypno-Systemic Procedures.
Reconciling the shared goal and agreeing the paths towards it ensures commitment and efficiency. Clever moderation brings difficult topics to the table and finds shared solutions. Our partner “time-out” events organise joint activities which are fun and promote cohesion.
If team coaching reveals that someone wishes to engage more intensively on their own personal development, then individual coaching may be the next step.
