5. Team Coaching
Coaching the board of a blue-chip charity to perform more effectively
What we did
Board members worked in groups to identify key strategic issues and the behaviours that each of them would need to display to bring about the desired change in performance. In further sessions, the board members reviewed their own progress on expressing their desired behaviours and we used well-established techniques to enable greater understanding of people’s preferences to contribute. This approach enabled board members to identify gaps in performance, what was working well and what they wanted to change.
The chair and members of the board fed back 12 months later that the board is now operating on a new, and significantly higher level, engages in deeper inquiry, explores root causes, values other’s perspectives, considers optional courses and explores new ideas.
