The original idea for How To Coach Your Team came from a concern that with the growth of team coaching very little practical help and advice was available for managers who wanted to develop and coach their teams.

There is also a shortage of literature offering a resource and practical tool kit for professional team coaches to use when they are working with teams to develop their performance.

How to Coach Your Team is:

- Aimed at everyone involved in teams
- A book that can act as your personal coach – whether you are a team leader or a team member
- This book provides practical learning tools to build high performing teams
- A great resource for executive coaches and developers

5.0 out of 5 stars So many useful tips!

Great read, useful for any manager who is new to role or has had limited management training. I wasn't sure about coaching at first, because I always thought it was a bit fluffy, but it’s not like that. It is more about how you can get your team in shape to get on with their job and freeing up your time. It helped me to really focus on stuff in detail, so we had really clear direction and goals. Useful tips on how to deal with performance conversations too, which I always found challenging. The tips on getting everyone in the team engaged has been of real use to me. It is one of those books you can keep dipping in to when you face something unexpected.

This book was really informative, it was packed full of useful information and it was really easy to apply the tools. I found the team charter exercise particularly useful, as did the team in order to establish our expectations of each other and our respective roles. As an entrepreneur, you need to be able to trust your team to get on with the job so you can focus on the business, and team coaching has helped me to achieve exactly that.
