Much has been written about coaching individuals at work, but what about coaching teams at work? Even in organizations that have made strides toward becoming coaching experts, the focus tends to be on the individual-not the team. In Coaching the Team at Work, David Clutterbuck bridges the gap between theory and practice. He combines the techniques of team coaching and learning with the practical experiences of managers and coaches. Clutterbuck also answers questions such as: how team coaching differs from individual coaching, what skills underpin effective team coaching, and how team coaching can be made into a sustainable, automatic process. This book is a must for professionals who want their staffs to work as seamlessly as possible.

The style is clear and direct, packed with useful and practical advice on how to develop coaching processes to ensure increased effectiveness, whether as a coach, a manager or a member of the board. Coaching the Team at Work ranges across a comprehensive range of coaching issues, from the individual to the team, from the strategic to the operational.
