Workshops enrich employees’ knowledge and establish a performance standard. Team coaching adapts learned skills to participants’ day-to-day, so they can apply them in their unique positions. For example, R&D managers learn how to apply the skills they gained in management training to leading engineers, while HR leaders do the same for managing HRBPs.

Frequently asked questions

What topics do you support with team coaching?

We have a list of in-demand topics for your convenience, and each is based on multiple skill sets. You can also work with a coach to offer a customized topic tailored to your organizational context and teams’ real-life situations.

What’s considered a team for team coaching?

A team is any group of up to six employees who share a desired outcome. It could be an HR team that wants to improve its internal consulting capabilities, a cross-functional team that’s been tasked with a shared project, mid-level managers that need to drive team performance, or a group of individuals working on their communication skills. We find this group size ideal for discussing concrete issues and coming up with actionable plans in an intimate setting that promotes collaboration and accountability.

Do team leaders attend the sessions?

Yes, the manager meets the coach before the program to provide information about the team, their challenges, behaviors, and routines. In that way, they set the program’s goals and guide the discussion, after which they attend the sessions with the team. 

How do you match a coach to a team?

Our AI-based matching algorithm takes into account the programs’ desired outcome and topic, the team’s background, location, language, and learning styles, and the coaches’ expertise. All of these put together guarantee the best-fit coach to lead the sessions.

What’s the time commitment required from participants?

Team coaching typically consists of five one-hour sessions, so overall five hours. Coaches may provide resources or short assignments between sessions, and we ask participants to provide feedback. All in all, it’s a focused program with a limited time commitment.
