A manager can only be successful with a productive and supportive team. Therefore, individual management coaching will often include the reflection and analysis of the role of the manager within the team. It also helps the manager to be more effective at improving the team’s strength, interaction and performance. However, even better results can be achieved when the coach facilitates the process of team building with the manager and the team.
The basis of a functioning team is trust. Once mutual trust has been established, the team can learn to deal with conflicts in a constructive way, to commit to decisions made collectively, to take accountability and to focus on results. Good teamwork can be a powerful force in giving the manager a competitive advantage. It also makes every member of the team feel more engaged, motivated and satisfied in their work.
As a coach, I will help the manager and the team to build the fundamental requirements for successful teamwork.
— “The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I”. … They think “we”; they think “team”. They understand their job to be to make the team function …” (Peter Drucker)
