San Francisco, CA – Training professionals and HR managers are often frustrated with the lack of sustainability of most team training programs. With many hit and run training programs showing no long term results, Team Advantage: The Complete Coaching Guide for Team Transformation (Pfeiffer; 978-0-470-47185-2; July 2010; $220.00) by D.J. Mitsch teaches leaders how to have fun while creating a high-performing team.
Team Advantage is a proven team coaching program designed to transform team and their leaders through a development process – one that goes beyond the typical two-day team building event. The program is presented as an organizational “game” oriented around a stretch goal that is meaningful to the organization’s success. It also includes partnership with a coach who conveys coaching skills to the team leader as they focus together on guiding the team to new awareness, new agreements, and extraordinary performance. The process includes four phases of team development that are implemented over the course of 16 weeks: pre-game preparation, kick-off workshop, weekly coaching sessions, review of accomplishments and transformation.
The key objective is to provide a complete framework for driving team performance, resulting in a transformational experience. Other key learning objectives include:
- Conveying core and advanced coaching skills to the team leader
- Providing a forum for real conversations, truth telling, and surfacing conflict as a natural part of team development and essential to the creative process
- Having each team member take responsibility for the team win – “everybody wins, or no one wins”
- Leaving the team with a replicable process for continuing to grow together as they accomplish their potential
Team Advantage is ideal for training and human resource professionals who create and run coaching and teamwork development programs; as well as consultants and coaches who want to drive extraordinary, sustainable teams.
