Team Coaching & Facilitation

Build a foundation of trust with your team and experience unprecedented courage and innovation.

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.

Team Building/Collaboration

Get to know each other better to be able to collaborate better. Whenever one person joins or leaves a team, it is a new team. Whether you realize it or not, the team goes through the forming, storming, norming cycle again. Deliberately do this, and take the chance to deepen trust in the team. Depending on the size of the team, this can be in a half-day or one-day workshop with Margo and/or one of her colleagues. **Virtual sessions possible**

The team will start by making working agreements which are the basis of a team charter. We will then use a strengths survey or MBTI questionnaire to help each team member increase her self-awareness and learn to appreciate and take advantage of differences in the team. In full-day sessions, we will also explore each team member’s needs, how they can be at their best, and how they impact one another.

Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-led.

Team Vision

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 and/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.

Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-led.

It is often valuable to anchor a Team Vision session with follow-on Team Coaching.

Team Values

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 and/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.

Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-led.

It is often valuable to anchor a Team Values session with follow-on Team Coaching.

Team Detox Program

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! A two-day Team Detox program will help your team make a fresh start and re-establish the lines of communication. **Virtual sessions possible, in-person recommended**

These programs start with one-on-one interviews of each team member and include the opportunity for them to give each other feedback, supported by a coach. Participants learn to communicate in a “non-violent” way and also learn to take responsibility for their feelings and reactions to different situations.

Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-led.

It is critical to anchor a Team Detox session with follow-on Team Coaching.

Team Coaching

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. In order to build up to a state of high performance and maintain it, Team Coaching is the best vehicle.

Team coaching is kicked off with one of the above team workshops, followed by a series of 2-3 hour team coaching sessions every 6 weeks or so. Depending on the size of the team, the coaching may be co-led. **Virtual sessions possible, in-person recommended**

” Margo is a real motivating person with a stunning charm and impressive knowledge and experience. The way she steers the group, how she triggers energy and tickles the best out of each participant makes worth all the time spent in her training. I honestly hope this was not the last time for me in one of her training. “
