Team Coaching Skills for Managers, Leaders & Coaches

Critical coaching skills for cohesive and inspired teams

Discover how to use coaching to spark team genius and accelerate performance

Using team coaching skills to support teams is gaining ground as more managers and leaders see the benefits of this approach. The coaching process itself supports attitudes of openness and accountability and fosters communication between members to increase trust, without which true collaboration can’t happen. At TNM, we’ve seen first-hand how it creates deeper relationships and team cohesiveness which trigger greater engagement, creativity, project ownership and committed action.

This Team Coaching Skills program provides leaders and managers with a practical toolkit of team coaching knowledge, and techniques they can apply immediately to develop individuals and teams. Most importantly, participants will leave excited to challenge the boundaries of what they believe is possible in increasing their team’s effectiveness.
