Why All Coaches Need To Understand Teams
with Prof. David Clutterbuck
CCEs: 1 Core Competencies, .5 Resource Development
Every organization depends on teams — and teams of teams — to achieve its goals. Yet most coaching investment currently goes into improving the performance of individuals. The problem is that a team may have many high performing individuals, yet poor collective performance. So as a one-to-one coach, our work may have little positive effect on the organization.
Buyers of coaching around the world are becoming increasingly aware of this and gradually shifting resources to coaching the team and the systems around it. A major implication is that one-to-one coaches, who are not “team savvy” and systems competent will be left behind.
David is one of the few active members of the original pioneers of coaching and mentoring. Author of some 70 books, he is visiting professor of coaching and mentoring at four universities. Co-founder of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (the oldest of the professional bodies in the field), he is now its Special Ambassador, tasked with spreading good practice. He leads a global network of coaching and mentoring educators, Coaching and Mentoring International. His current research projects include investigations into coach-AI partnerships and the diversity (or lack of) in coaches’ practice.
The latest version of David’s classic book “Coaching the Team at Work” will be published March 2020.
