Building Leadership Capacity as a Team
What makes supporting a team through coaching most valuable to businesses today is that it enables the team to reframe and enhance the way it relates to and serves its business environment, which means placing as much emphasis on how it leads change with its stakeholders as how it functions internally. Therefore, rather than just focussing on the team’s internal relationships and functioning, my approach is to work with the team and its members to build their collective leadership, helping them to co-create value in their engagement with their stakeholders. These could include the commissioners of the team; the investors; those that the team leads; the customers and suppliers of the team; the communities in which it operates and the more than human world the team depends upon. This approach recognizes that the biggest challenges in nearly all organizations today lie not inside the individuals, teams, or even departments, but in the connections between them.
