In partnership with Clutterbuck Coaching and Mentoring International (CCMI), we present the Practitioner program, the starting point for anyone wanting to become a team coach. It aims to ensure competency and confidence in extending coaching approaches to helping teams become more effective and develop the capability to coach themselves. The context is coaching teams in the workplace, with particular emphasis on executive teams and project teams, although the tools, techniques and theory also apply to other forms of team. This program covers:

  • Developing yourself as a team coach

  • Supporting and working with the team leader

  • Understanding Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)

  • Flexing different modes of working with teams

  • Contracting and Psychological Safety

  • Using the PERILL model and diagnostic with teams

  • Defining the issues and goal setting

  • Making team decisions

  • Working with a co-coach, stakeholders and/or client sponsor

  • Learning the team coaching and team engagement processes

Pre-requisites 

  • You will have a solid foundation of experience and expertise in one-to-one coaching and want to add team coaching to your portfolio. 

  • You could also have previous team coaching experience and have facilitated teams or groups

  • Not required, but GTCI Gateway program could have been completed

Course requirements 

This program is a European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) Global Team Coaching Training Quality Award (TCQA) program (TCQA20200005) and 40.5 (36.5 CC & 4 RD) International Coach Federation (ICF) Continuing Coach Education (CCE) hours, as such you will have specific elements to complete. If you are interested in attaining an Accreditation, you will have the learning requirements to apply for the EMCC Team Coaching Practitioner if you complete the requirements. 

 

  • Team to practice on during the program – to apply the learning as you go, you need to have 2 teams of at least 4 people (4 sessions per team). The team could be a pro-bono team such as a school or church committee, on-going team, not-for-profit or agile teams, etc. Does not need to be a ‘typical’ paying client, choose a team that will benefit from you practicing new techniques and making mistakes, preferably with a co-coach. For planning purposes, you will have learned the team coaching processes and materials no later than session 5, and need to have the majority of the team coaching completed by your final assignment. Please use the program dates for your cohort to contract with your client about when to start and complete the team coaching.   

  • Preferred – team coaching with a co-coach on your or their practice team. Opportunities can be for you to pair up with someone from the course.

  • 6 - 10 hours pre-work prior to program commencement, including reading, watching videos of David Clutterbuck and Tammy Turner coach a team throughout the entire coaching journey, and completing a team coach development plan.  

  • A final short answer assignment based on your reflective journal examining yourself as a team coach and at least one team coaching engagement where you applied the techniques, models and tools from the program. 

  • Anticipate 1 – 2 hours in between course sessions for preparatory work
