Coaching to Develop High Performance Teams

by Dillon Patterson Article Publisher

Coaching is an enabler in developing an empowering culture within businesses. It helps business owners, managers and executives to be courageous leaders and make their goals and mission realities. This empowerment leads to higher employee engagement, productivity, effective leadership development, greater company morale and higher profitability rates over the short- and long term.

Coaching will raise the level of the team's effectiveness because each member will be encouraged to work to their unique strengths and abilities which will benefit themselves, their team and the organisation.

Coaching challenges old structures, cultures and belief systems which inevitably exist below the surface, which affect the quality, quantity and productivity of individuals and the team. Business coaching focuses on getting what is important to the fore as well as removing barriers to a team's effectiveness once and for all.

Coaching is a holistic process, one that works with the entire person; identifying needs, values, priorities, and building a solid foundation from which to increase an individual's performance and behaviour which in turn influences the results of the collective team performance.

What are the benefits of coaching for individuals and teams?

·         Develop and raise the performance of both individuals and teams

·         The development of leadership skills within the team

·         Greater sense of trust and respect between team members and different teams

·         Identify and maximise competencies and abilities within the team for maximum effect

·         More effective and efficient team communication and processes

·         Conflict resolution managed in an effective and lasting manner

·         Motivation levels enhanced at all levels

·         Increased peer coaching and mentoring

·         Reduced staff turnover and retention of key team members

Business coaching produces results:

·         Individuals and team members all committed to the same aims and objectives

·         Inter and intra-collaboration of teams and members to coach and mentor each other to be successful.

·         A clear relationship between every team member's day-to-day work and your organization's vision and mission.

·         Team members encouraged to try new and innovative ideas and rewarded for doing so.

·         Teams recognized for group performance in addition to individual accomplishments.

·         Team members provide open and honest communication to each other and use it to improve performance.

·         Conflict is understood as normal and viewed as an opportunity to solve problems.

·         Productivity, morale, confidence and motivation increases.

Today's Businesses Face Constant Change

It seems the only certainty for a business today is change. Right now your company is probably either growing or contracting, restructuring or merging, buying or divesting, downsizing or rightsizing, changing focus or trying to refocus. Perhaps even trying to do a combination of these all at once!

All of this activity is an attempt to remain competitive, yet your company's true competitive advantage walks out your door every day. To remain competitive in today's economy, your business must recognize that your primary advantage is NOT in your product or service, but in your people.

Your leaders must be constantly focused on adapting to the future, while maintaining the flexibility needed to meet today's demanding consumer.

In today's economic uncertainty, all businesses, either privately, publicly or family owned, need the advantage of coaching.

Some businesses have already successfully used coaching and training to achieve some incredible results including:
