The Leaders To Do List is Long
Appreciating that having a position in leadership means you have a daily list of to do's that feel endless. I see no need to rehash the list here.
In the vein of helping out leaders and managers of teams who need output, positive work environments and growth for the organization. It makes sense that team leaders partner with certified team coaches to enable them a strong assist within their teams.
Team Coaching can provide the vessel for leaders to communicate their organizational needs, enable a safe place for feedback as well as a way for teams to grow and begin to flourish in their performance and relationships, not feeling like it has to be one over the other. Since team coaching allows for honouring of KPI's and dynamic assessments, there seems to be no better way for leaders to gain the edge they need then to partner with someone they can trust to help within their teams.
Managers and Leaders who partner with external team coaches share that they "have a better sense of their team", "see improvement in dynamics and thus are able to access greater creativity and idea sharing" which allows the organization the innovation it needs to complete projects and thrive.
Team coaches are not about 'replacing' leadership, but assisting in such a way that allows the leader a to embrace a companion seat with the team and thus create greater trust, respect and collaboration. With the whole idea to eventually have the manager or leader take over the coaching as they feel best suited for them.
Team Coaching is an access for leaders to work with their teams in a more profound, effective and mindful way. Not a replacement for leaders. Though many long standing relationships exist with my clients to further challenging conversations or projects if needed.
As we've learned through this COVID crisis. #TogetherIsBetter. Now lets not drop this new learning.

Get The Best Out Of Your Team
Wether you're a brand new team lead standing in front of your team for the first time or a seasoned manager of teams, the data shares that what leaders of teams want most is to be liked and listened to by their teams. It's really as simple as that.
At the core of our humanness each of us want to be seen, acknowledged, be enough and feel we have a purpose. The rest of our 'issues' are all personalized versions of these.
I'm sorry to minimize, and I'm not sorry. There is so much content around leadership and yet there have been no real movements or changes in leadership effectiveness for the past half century.
My belief is because it's not just about the leader and their style of leadership. It's about relationships.
You want to be an amazing leader, master the skill of building healthy relationships.
