1 Working with Teams to Create a High Performing Culture using Stages of Individual and Team Development
This experiential session will explore teams as the future’s most important unit in organizations—the core unit that establishes organizational culture and sparks its evolution and development. This session will enable participating coaches to understand the team as a system, a whole that is greater and more capable than just the sum of the individuals. It will give participants a basic understanding of adult development theory as applies to individuals and teams. We will teach techniques to bridge individual and team identities and growth, enabling the team to learn from the individuals and the individuals to learn from the team. We will bridge coaching skills and core developmental stage theories—in effect bringing in Adult Development Theory as a frame that informs the coaching process and enables it to move forward more effectively. The lens of this theory will also expand participants’ sense of what is possible for their clients, enabling them to introduce team coaching and stage of development as strategies that helps the organization build the relationship infrastructure needed to continue to adapt to a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (V.U.C.A.). In this way, we will examine how we can expand the future of coaching, as the profession seeks to become more effective at helping leaders and organizations evolve.
