The complexity of coaching teams
As organizational coaches continue to create positive outcomes for executives and leaders, it is becoming more and more commonplace for sponsors to invite coaches to expand their expertise by offering coaching to their internal teams. But coaching teams is significantly more complex compared to coaching individuals. Organizational coaches who commit to team engagements need to be prepared to deal with this added complexity.
RRU Associate Faculty (CCWI), Dr. Laura Hauser, recently presented at the Conference Board’s 12th Annual Executive Coaching Conference in New York City. Laura joined the ranks of renowned scholar-practitioners Marshall Goldsmith and David Rock and revealed her new four-lens framework used for coaching in the complex environment of work teams. Laura was recently asked by the International Coach Federation (ICF) to serve as the expert on the new conversation about group and team coaching. Everyone is talking about it, but few know what or how to do it. We’re delighted Laura is helping us to shape the future of team coaching for practitioners, organizations, educators and researchers.
