Community of Practice – Team Coaching

an open co-learning peer environment 

Team (or group) work has been around for centuries. It is and has always been the pillar of any great society or community, leading either to its success or its downfall.

 

In more recent times, the need for productive and harmonious teamwork within our organisations and systems has been acknowledged, leading to the birth of what is known today as the practice of ‘team coaching’.

“The way in which a group of people come together and work together will always determine the quality of what they produce.”

 

Tammy Turner

About.

There are particular qualities that a team coach requires to be able to do their job well. These include patience, understanding, compassion, strong organisational skills, the ability to express in their authority, the ability to listen and the knowing of when to respond. Further to these qualities, a team coach needs to be well versed and up to date with the latest in coaching techniques, consulting, group dynamics, conflict resolution and facilitation…just to name a few.  

As a specialty field, team coaching continues to evolve as more coaches are trained with the skills needed in supporting teams to collaborate for positive outcomes. In response to this, Turner International has established a ‘community of practice’ for coaches to come together and share their expertise and experience, strengthening relationships and supporting each other to grow as practitioners and as people.

What is it?

A community of practice is a peer forum, not a master class, supervision or a training program. Each session is an open co-learning peer environment which offers the space for discussion and expansion, and perhaps practice with your peers. Each session will be facilitated by a community member host to offer structure, keep time and ensure any notes that need to be shared are captured. From time-to-time, Tammy Turner, EMCC Master Practitioner Team Coach, and/or other internationally recognised team coaches may attend to enrich the session by offering their wisdom on a topic; though not as hosts, supervisors or trainers.  

What are the benefits?

Each member's benefits may vary depending on their experience level, their openness to sharing and commitment to the community learning on offer. Some benefits might be advancing your understanding and confidence, feeling supported, challenged and valued - while also having fun and developing meaningful relationships along the way. There may also be a follow-on effect that the community decides to share what they've learned with their clients; through blogging or v-logging and/or research. You will be able to claim the hours spent as part of your 40 required ICF Credential Renewal hours and can be claimed as Resource Development hours, not core competencies as the COP does not have ICF CCE's associated with it.  

What will be covered?

Each session currently has a suggested topic, a host and some structure to get the group underway (listed below). However, members can decide what is going to best benefit them and the others and re-contract. Each have some structure - for example: a topic discussion with break-out/small group activities; team coaching practice using a fishbowl approach or mutual learning. 

Who can attend?

Community of Practice members will be graduates of any team coaching training program - AoEC, CMI, Renewal Associates, GTCI, ORSC, 6 team conditions and/or Turner International. You could be an internal or external team coach or team leader. It is unknown at this stage how many people will enrol in the COP. The opportunity here is for a large group of team coaches so there is diversity, growth and advancement on offer. There will be opportunities for special interest groups, smaller learning forums and/or break out discussions as the COP forms. There could be scope to have niches by interest, experience and/or approaches.

What is the time commitment?

Each session is 90-minutes on zoom. Depending on what the group decides, you may need to read some materials, watch some videos and/or other preparation, though you may decide simply to show up. How involved you get with the community is entirely up to you.

When are the Meetings?

All 90-minute meetings will be from 4:30 pm – 6:00pm Sydney Australia time

What are the potential topics and schedule? 

Please note: these are suggested topics only. Please check back regularly if you are only interested in 'drop-in' session as we will update this schedule as the community decides closer to the date.
