Thriving teams grow from working environments that are safe, inclusive and challenging.
At the heart of every productive and thriving team are solid relationships and safe, inclusive leadership. But when these are interrupted, the team can feel unstable and uncertain, resulting in:
- Poor staff morale
- Reduced productivity
- Heightened stress and feelings of overwhelm
- High staff turnover
Leadership Teams the world over are increasingly recognising the power of Team and Individual Leadership Coaching, to build thriving teams.
Safe, Inclusive, Challenging
At A Single Step we walk alongside you, providing safe, inclusive and challenging learning spaces for the professional growth and development of your leaders at executive, senior leadership and program levels.
What is involved?
Team and Individual Coaching sessions, scheduled at regular intervals, will help team members explore issues and themes that relate to the collective team experience. They will be supported to identify and negotiate internal and external impacts on team performance and make targeted adjustments.
The role of a Team Coach is to ask the right questions to help the team focus on what is important, understand what is helping and hindering their performance, and build cohesion, towards greater harmony and productivity.
Because we work exclusively with the Helping Professions, we understand the prevalence of trauma and stress in the lives of both clients and workers in this sector. We employ a trauma-informed-care approach to every program we facilitate.
The Next Step
Where practical, we will work with your team live, in your workplace. For individual coaching sessions, Zoom (or your preferred online meeting platform) is an effective and flexible alternative.
Why not invite Chris Pye of A Single Step to come and meet with your management committee or executive team, to hear, with no obligation, how he supports organisations to grow happier, more productive and thriving teams.
