Learnit Training

Improve cooperation through team coaching

It is remarkable that one team functions above average while the other is stagnant. There is harmony in one team and unrest in another. Some teams take responsibility for joint results, while others do not. Everything depends on clarity in goals, the degree of commitment to these goals and the capacity of the team to discuss them, give feedback and accept confrontation. In other words: fulfilling the role of team member instead of focusing on personal issues.

Introduction

Every organisation strives for well-cooperating teams. However, due to differences in dynamics, cooperation and communication, there are also intriguing differences between teams, despite comparable compositions. By means of Team coaching Learnit Training ensures that teams are stronger in their shoes afterwards, that differences can exist alongside each other and that they can be appreciated. Together with the team, the team coach looks for collective thinking and behavioural patterns within the group, so that the cooperation can be tackled constructively.

Results

What are the benefits of team coaching?

  • Insight into the underlying beliefs that determine the culture of the organisation
  • Insight into the existing undercurrent and its dynamics, and the relationship between the undercurrent and the uppercurrent
  • Clarification of organisational and team objectives, establishing a relationship with the desired learning question
  • Understanding the responsibilities of the team and those of the manager
  • An open communication atmosphere through insight into mutual communication
  • Motivation to give and ask feedback
  • A higher degree of trust between team members

Approach

How do we achieve this?

  • Clearly define the coaching questions, the desired results
  • Get real commitment to set goals and investigate possible obstacles in which the team is holding itself back
  • Gaining insight into the phases of team development
  • Intervene, depending on the phase, wherever the team is
  • Group discussion on reflection, decision-making and ownership
  • Making invisible mechanisms, roles and patterns visible
  • Increasing the team's self-reflective capacity
  • Defining expectations and (result) responsibilities with each other
  • Discussing theoretical models and analyses from the perspective of group dynamics
  • Looking systemically at the existing team and placing team coaching in its context
  • Making each other aware of their own behaviour, the effect of this on others and on the result
  • Understanding that the team is responsible for the result together
  • Experiential learning and working with behaviour, here-and-now situations and one's own practical experience

Underlying every team are many layers of mutual relationships, ways of organising, unconscious beliefs and different motivations. By scrutinising these layers in the course of team coaching, it comes to light how the members of the team together maintain certain patterns that are (not) effective. The approach of team coaching is to increase competence development. This improves the mutual cooperation of the team and the interaction between the coached team and its environment. In this way, the desired result and process objectives can be realised.

Our team coaches

Carlijn

Growth and development: these are the two concepts that have been my passion for many years, in the broadest sense of the word. With clients, this results in beautiful, insightful advice, guidance, training and (team) coaching. Increasing insight into one's own abilities and investigating what prevents the other person from taking the next step. By listening carefully to what is (not) being said, holding up a mirror to what is being said with respect, and always connecting with the client. I want to set people in motion on the basis of contact and connection, and from the conviction that every participant knows best what is needed, but only needs that little push in the right direction. My approach: experience action-oriented exercises in a safe environment that can be confronting, but which also include a laugh. Every training course, group and individual is different, and therefore always customised. And what fun and learning that is!

A team is more than the sum of its individual members. A team can even make the impossible possible, but sometimes teams bite their own tail and get bogged down by remaining in fixed and ingrained patterns. The strength of the team, the system, also ensures that this remains the case. Often through change or input from outside, this pattern can be broken. As a team coach, together with the team I investigate what these patterns are and we bring them to light, for example, constantly complementing each other or discussing them, or other behaviour that is characteristic of the team. By naming this and discussing it, it becomes clear what is going on in the undercurrents of the team and why this behaviour is characteristic of the team. This creates relaxation and space for other behaviour. I believe that every team can get even more out of itself by (daring to) investigate and look in the team's mirror. Each time, I enjoy the journey and the development that a team embarks on.

Dorien

Everyone and everything is constantly changing. Every person and every team. I believe that bumps in the road can lead to interesting insights and learning moments. I often hear from people or teams that they are stuck in old patterns. I help to make these transparent, so that they can learn from their strengths. I guide and coach people and teams during changes and transitions from a systemic perspective, because people are not separate from their environment. My coaching and training sessions are characterised by experiencing and doing. Through my training sessions, the subconscious is addressed, leading to the uncovering of patterns, wishes, blockages, talents and solutions.
