In all team work, the whole system has to be taken into consideration;
- the manager,
- the team members,
- other stakeholders,
- the organizational culture you work in
- the customer
- the competition
- external influences/global events
All of these contribute to the successes and challenges of each team.
It’s critical to take time to reflect and clarify what is important to your team and do so in a way that allows space for both logic and emotions. Systemic thinking is at the foundation of all Team work done by Coaching Without Borders.
Build up your team and get it moving in the right direction. Laying the foundation for a Team Vision can be done in a one-day workshop with Margo or one of her colleagues. **Virtual sessions possible**
The team will start by aligning on their values and mission, and then exploring a variety of questions around the purpose, strengths and challenges of the team. The end result is a direction which can be used as a source of motivation and a compass by which to keep the team ‘on track’, even when the going gets tough.
It is often valuable to anchor a Team Vision session with follow-on Team Coaching.
What makes your team unique? Your team is a microcosm in a larger organization. What are the behaviors that you reward and what are the behaviors that are frowned upon in your team. How do they fit with the values of the larger organization you are in? A one-day discovery session for Team Values can be facilitated by Margo or one of her colleagues. **Virtual sessions possible**
The team will start by exploring what are the kinds of behaviors, habits and decisions the fuel for productivity and well-being in the team, and what are those which chip away at morale. The team walks about with an ability to describe the working atmosphere in the team with just a few words. This serves as a basis for feedback to each other and also for the smooth and successful on-boarding of new team members.

Sometimes, teams need a little more help. When there is tension in the air and it is already hard for some team members to talk to each other, chances are the team is not experiencing high performance!

Some teams experience High Performance when the trust is high and they find themselves in a state of flow. High Performing Teams are committed not just to the business targets but are also committed to their own and teammates’ personal growth and development. High Performance is often a temporary state.

Team coaching is kicked off with a two day off-site coaching sessions, followed by a series of 2-3 hour team coaching sessions on a monthly basis for 6 months. Then, follow-on team coaching sessions can be organized ad hoc as needed. Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-lead. **Virtual sessions possible**
