Who is the course for?

This 6 month development programme is best suited for experienced coaches and team leaders who wish to provide their working practice with a practical understanding of teams and team coach-mentoring.   All delegates will be expected to identify a team to work with throughout the programme to enhance their reflective practice and learning. 

Why take this course?

A practical programme designed to provide you with resources, skills and experience to confidently develop the performance of the teams you work with.  The programme has been developed around the OCM’s Framework for Situational Team Coach-Mentoring providing you with the tools to develop your own approach to working and supporting teams in their unique situational context.

 What’s in it for me? 

This highly practical blended course draws on the experience of our team coach-mentors to demonstrate how team coaching supports the learning in a team promoting sustained performance and increased productivity.  The programme is designed to provide you with a real-life tool kit of useful learning from which you will: 

  • Gain an understanding of Teams and Team Coaching and how this supports the development and performance of a team
  • Explore the dynamics of teams through understanding and use of multiple models and tools
  • Develop your own authentic approach and toolkit to Team Coaching
