Teams can be a challenge to manage. They develop a culture of their own, they have a history and a desired future. To realize that future they need to be able to see their blind spots, play to their strengths, develop a common culture, control their mood and codify their unspoken rules.
Many reasons account for a dilemma in building effective teams, from lack of a clear goals, to unclear roles, personality conflicts, unrealistic timelines and budgets, poor communication, and having gaps in the talent needed to succeed.
The coaching focus depends on where the team is in its life cycle. At the beginning, coach and client might work on clarifying goals, rules of the road, setting the course to success, building chemistry among team members, and other topics required during kick off. In the middle, the coaching tends to focus more on clearing up setbacks, moving things forward, learning how to work better together, and managing transitions.
