What is it?
ICF defines it as partnering in a co-creative and reflective process with a team and its dynamics and relationships in a way that inspires them to maximize their abilities and potential in order to reach their common purpose and shared goals.
What is the difference between them?
As it can be observed from the definition, what makes it different from coaching groups is the fact that a team has a common purpose and a shared goal, whereas a group might have similar interests, but different goals.
For example, a team inside an organization works towards the same goal and in accordance with a common framework and common standards. The people that are part of the group do not necessarily know each other and they could attend for example a group session on career or health, but each individual’s goal with the session is different. Below you will find more details about the role of the coach during a team session which will further clarify what to expect from these kinds of sessions.
How is it different than individual coaching?
The competencies of a team coach build upon the ICF Core Competencies of a coach and you can find comprehensive details about coaching in the context of teams in the ICF Coaching Competencies for Team Sessions.
According to ICF, an essential difference is of course the nature of the client which in the context of team sessions is not represented by individuals, but by the team itself as an entity, that is made up of multiple individuals. Although a coach does not need new competencies in order to coach a team, there are some new sub-competencies necessary in order to be an efficient team coach.
What does a team coach do?
When working with teams, ICF advises that the coach should have a broader understanding on power dynamics inside a team, know how to detect and handle conflict, understand what high performing teams require, be able to strengthen team cohesion, establish rules, make sure every team member contributes and to nurture team autonomy.
Coaching with teams is part of the broader domain of team development which also includes team training, team consulting, team building, team facilitation and team mentoring which differ from one another depending on the time frame, process, growth area, how conflict and team dynamics are handled and who is the expert.
In the case of coaching session the expert is of course the team, team dynamics and conflict are essential and the growth area is represented by the team sustainability and the achievement of the team goal.
