About Team Coaching

Unlike one-off workshops and team-building away-days, team coaching enables teams to identify and resolve their challenges over a programme lasting several months – resulting in deeper learning and more sustainable change. It usually involves coaching the team together as well as one-to-one coaching for individuals.

Through our ‘systemic’ approach, team members also focus on the various systems in which they operate. Most team coaching focuses exclusively on the team’s internal ways of working and relationships; Systemic Team Coaching looks more broadly at the influences outside the team, not just within it.

“I would strongly recommend this high-quality, intensive programme. The focus on the ‘systemic’ part of systemic team coaching was the real revelation and across three days we covered a lot of ground.”

Who’s it for?

This team coaching training programme is for experienced coaches and OD consultants who already have some team coaching or facilitation experience and who want to deepen their practice. Typically, participants include experienced organisational consultants, executive coaches, business/team leaders and training managers.

Through the programme, you will:

  • Understand Systemic Team Coaching theory and practice
  • Apply the STC process and the Hawkins’ Five Disciplines model in a business simulation
  • Learn how to use the Team Connect 360 diagnostic (and become licensed)
  • Experience live experiments that explore the nature of team and group functioning
  • Develop ‘Self as Instrument’ – using your physical senses, rational, intuition and body as the data collector and sense maker
  • Gain insight into the one-year Master Practitioner Diploma (and complete the foundation module)

“A really solid, well-designed programme which went through self-discovery and more teaching around the principles and application of the Hawkins’ Five Disciplines. The pace was good throughout and there was plenty of opportunity to practice and reflect.”

John Leary-Joyce, AoEC Executive Chair, describes the systemic nature of team coaching in this short video:


  • A WEBEX introducing thoughts about Systemic Team Coaching
  • A pre-read on the business simulation which is used during the programme
  • Information on the Team Connect 360 tool 
  • Pre-course recommended reading
  • A case study (for interest only)

“The course opened my eyes to new dimensions and considerations in coaching teams and I very much enjoyed the highly participatory nature of the course.”
