Masterclass Content

The demand for team coaching is accelerating fast: The 2016 Ridler Report stated that 76% of organisations expected to increase their use of team coaching in the next two years, and rising numbers of coaches and consultants are building team coaching into their repertoire. So how do we partner with our clients to build the type of shared leadership that will help them facilitate real change in their stakeholder communities? How do we become aware of our own leadership style and impact, and know how we can best bring this to the coach-client relationship?

In this masterclass, Dr Hilary Lines will share her personal approach to building shared leadership through systemic team coaching, drawing on her experience of coaching leaders and teams over the past 30 years. She will engage the group in an exploration of the challenges of coaching teams and the importance of holding a systemic lens to their work. She will look at how the approach, philosophy and presence that we embody as team coaches impacts on the coach-team relationship and the ability of the team to lead change with their stakeholders.

Participants will be invited to apply the concepts, frameworks and approaches presented to their own team coaching client work, drawing on the experience, challenge and support of other masterclass participants as well as Hilary’s own client stories and perspectives.
