Team Coaching: Why it’s Needed to Overcome 21st Century Challenges
Time & Location
Companies are struggling to solve new challenges using yesterday’s solutions.
We have learned that 21st-century problems are best solved with a high-functioning network of dynamic, agile, collaborative teams that have the ability to adapt to uncertain circumstances. But establishing and nurturing this network across the organization and supply chain is not straightforward.
Team coaching has emerged as an essential ingredient to activate and grow new leadership and team capabilities. Its potency results from the application of real-time interventions, in a real work context that delivers immediate impact on team performance. It also sets in motion a generative learning culture that encourages new thinking in a psychologically safe environment.
In this session, we will discuss the current paradigm of team coaching and how it is evolving to meet the demands of the future workplace.
