To be human is to be in relationship with others
As coaches and learning and development professionals we know that relationships with others are a fundamental human need.
We are often drawn to support people in groups or teams, seeking even greater impact. The reality is that working with groups and teams can be complex.
Humans self orientate into groups and teams, and sometimes are forced to form as groups or teams. Either way, we seek emotional connection and satisfaction them.
However, we know that conflict and tension often arise through the challenges of co-existing with others and the difficulties in meeting everyone's ever evolving needs.
Coaching Groups and Teams is a different skillset to working 1:1.

This module also covers group and team theory, ethics and the competencies and skills needed to do this work.

It begins with the coach and in this module you'll explore how you prepare yourself for this work, connecting with the wider contribution this work will make in the world, before moving on learning about the many considerations for preparing your group or team.

For group and team coaching to be effective you need a deep understanding of the role you play, as well as the many roles that form within groups and teams.
