Teams can benefit from our systemic team training to achieve team
goals and resolve team conflicts. We coach team leaders to
develop healthy relationships and improve productivity,
and we coach individual team members to manage any resistance
to healthy productivity, cooperation and collaboration.
Effective Team Leadership
Few groups of people can truthfully be called
teams. Managing groups rarely needs the skills and dedication
required for effective team leadership. Organizing people or
overseeing workgroups requires far less skill than developing
those groups into competent, inspired and cooperating teams.
Perhaps you are a member of a group that you know could do
better - maybe a lot better - and you would like to be an effective
leader. Imagine that you repeatedly see the following actions during
meetings ... how might a competent leader react?
- A team member is overly talkative
- A team member continually distracts the leader
- A team member says, "Yes, but ..." to every idea
- A team member communicates: “I am always right”
- Two team members whisper while the leader is talking
- A team member accuses the leader,
“You make us look bad”
- A member provides important information
only after decisions are made
If you don't know how to solve these problems smoothly and you want to be an
effective team leader - you could probably benefit from our coaching or
training. We coach teams and team leaders to manage problems while
taking steps towards defining and achieving worthwhile goals.
Our team training offers both short-term results and long-term development.
Candidates for leadership usually demonstrate superior accomplishments
and can inspire people to embody the core competencies and values of an
organization. Dressing for success and pretty certificates are not enough.
You can maximize your potential with our leadership coaching.
Teams and organizations need leaders, and leadership skills
enhance your success within your organization. Leadership skills benefit both
you and your organization ... enhance your income, productivity, greater job
satisfaction and success towards your objectives.
All teams start as groups - do you want to coach groups to develop
into teams? Or do you want to coach so-so team leaders to become
effective? Or perhaps both?

Leadership Coaching for Top Team Leaders
Do your core values match the values of your team?
If you are trying to force people to change their values ... well,
good luck. An early step should be to assess the team values - and
your own - and check that they match.
If you are highly success oriented and the team is highly relationship
oriented or stability oriented or survival oriented ... what can you
do? If your values do not match the team values, there are solutions.
What type of team leader do you want to be? A dictator? An
absent manager? A motivator? A supportive parent? You leadership skills may need
fine-tuning. The Golden Rule (the person with the gold makes the rules)
may work with desperate or needy people, for a short time anyway. It may also work
for gang leadership - but probably not for effective team leadership.
You cannot develop your leadership skills alone; mentorship is
integral to quality teamwork. Can you invest 100% in a team when you do
not agree 100% with their goals, values or methods? We coach and mentor
team leaders ... and people who want to become team leaders:
- Build passion and integrity
- Identify what can be changed
- Select appropriate team members
- Predict, identify and analyze relationships
- Resolve conflicts to build motivation and trust
- Resolve your own issues (personal, emotional and

Top Leaders manage Team Problems

conflicts that effective
leaders must manage in teams are:

coach individual team members and teams if there
are strong conflicts between team member's individual goals and
