Senior Leadership Team Coaching
Coaching a senior leadership team, indeed any team, can represent the next challenge in developing your skills as a coach for all occasions. This workshop will be of particular interest to those called upon to support teams that have lost their way, are seen as not performing in some way, or simply want to get better at what they do, together.
The day will build on some well loved models and assumptions about team development and then challenge them in some new and exciting ways. It will feature the acclaimed work of Prof Peter Hawkins, using his leadership team model. We will explore practical tools and approaches, including a TEAM360, developed specifically with Peter and Bath Consultants Group for the purpose of giving team insight into how it is perceived and the value it is actually adding.
• What are the challenges of being a leadership team?
- Consider assumptions about teams, and some
classic models of team development
• Challenge some of our pre-conceptions of teams and how they work
• Using Prof Peter Hawkins’ Leadership Team Model, develop a practical process and approach to your next leadership team intervention
- Creating a safe space - getting folk into the room in the first place - “Leave your guns at the door”-
ways of defusing and working with conflict 
Using 360 feedback - Role and use of psychometrics - Using scaling to develop a tool - Team exercises -
‘entertainment’ or useful?
