About the Master the Art of Team Coaching Program

Long-time coaching partners Kerry Woodcock and Sherry Matheson received so many questions about their process for team coaching that they crafted this program in response.  Master the Art of Team Coaching blends their personal experiences with ICF team coaching standards in a mentorship that encourages you to grow alongside your own peer network.

Master the Art of Team Coaching is now an ICF CCE Approved Program offering 40 CCEs (38 Core Competency and 2 Resource Development).

The two of you were incredibly generous about sharing your whole process, the way it works, how you use it, so it felt like there wasn’t anything missing or that I couldn’t ask, and you were right there with answers and support.

Who is this team coach mentoring program for?

Those at all stages on the journey to team coaching mastery find value in this program. Some are just starting out as a novice team coach. Others are maestros gaining confidence in focusing their considerable skills, ready to innovate their own unique process of working with systems and systems entry. Wherever you may stand in terms of knowledge and experience, you are welcome in this group of peer coaches striving toward excellence.


Four stages along the journey of a team coach

stage 1


This learner, newly trained and eager to get started, needs to develop confidence and learn the basic process.

As a Novice, you have skills, tools, and some practice, but aren’t sure where or how to begin reaching out to clients, step into systems coaching, develop contracts and proposals, or design the process.

As your mentors, we are able to guide you step-by-step through the entire coaching framework, enriching the knowledge base you’ve already acquired.

stage 2

Apprentice COACH

This learner, trained and competent with initial client experiences and a desire to improve, needs specific tips and the emotional support and guidance necessary to grow.

As an Apprentice, you have the basic knowledge down pat but are starting to realize your personal limitations and see where you need to improve. Your commitment has helped you to progress into the Apprentice stage, as you become “consciously incompetent.”

As your mentors, we are able to recognize the frustration so common to this stage, as you wonder if you will ever get it. Directing learning, flexible training plans, and one-on-ones are key. We share tips, tricks and success stories to assist with your learning, along with encouragement and emotional support.

stage 3

Journeyer COACH

This learner is experienced, very capable and ready to explore nuance and complexity.

If you’re a journeyer team coach, you are a skilled team coach yet don’t quite feel you are fully in flow. You’re in search of a place to access knowledge, experience and resources for the variety of nuanced and unique situations that you encounter. In this program, you can join a community of peers to notice the patterns that are showing up and work in detail with the complexity of systems.

stage 4

Maestro COACH

This learner is a highly developed coach working with a variety of systems, who wishes to innovate in community for unique and challenging systems work.

At the Maestro stage, you are polishing your skillset, having already achieved the ultimate goal of becoming “unconsciously competent.” The skill comes so naturally, it seems like inborn genius, automatic and effortless. Your purpose in joining us is to add subtle nuance. Perhaps you’d like to move from one area of expertise to another, as with moving from the corporate to the not-for-profit world. Or you may be ready to innovate new strategies and techniques, and want to do so in community.

As your mentors, we are here to play with concepts and techniques, adding additional dimension in a supportive peer-based environment.

For me, it was really the missing link between all of the technical knowledge of what to do and how to do it.
