Does your team need coaching?
Team coaching will always be of benefit to your team, but in some cases the need is more apparent. Here are a few signs that a team coaching intervention will be of immediate benefit for your team
- A new team has been formed, and the team needs to start performing
- The team has recently been restructured, and a few people are unhappy with the changes
- “Us” vs “them” camps have formed within the team
- Some of the team members really don’t seem to like each other
- Everyone in the team works hard to avoid conflict
- When conflict happens, it feels terrifying and escalates quickly
If you recognise some of the above scenarios as similar to those being faced by your team, consider bringing Team DnA in for a 2-hour team coaching session.

David and Alison are Accredited Certified Coaches with the International Coaching Federation and trained in Organisational Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) through CRR Global.

Results from our clients
Team DnA created a monthly coaching intervention of 2 hours for a software management team. These were the results:
- A noticeable improvement in authentic communication and the ability of members to communicate what they really felt. This meant that members were able to be more vulnerable, and less defensive.
- A greater comfort with conflict – knowing that emerging conflict reflects that something new is trying to emerge from within the team, and that giving air to those voices allows innovation to emerge
- Dramatic increase in trust within the team
- An awareness of the perspectives and realities of others, and a willingness to engage in open dialogue
- Growth in emotional awareness and maturity within the team.
