About the Master the Art of Team Coaching program

Team coaches are invited to join Kerry Woodcock and Sherry Matheson, two experienced team coaches, to Master the Art of Team Coaching. This 15-week group mentoring program demystifies the process of coaching teams and systems, in a mentorship that encourages you to grow alongside your own peer network.

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 should take part in this program?

We have found those at all stages on the road to mastery find value in this program. Whether you are just starting out as a newly-minted team coach or are a master ready to use your considerable skills to innovate new techniques, you are welcome to join this group of peer coaches.

At which of the four stages of the learning journey do you find yourself?

 

Four stages of knowledge:

stage 1

NOVICE

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

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 the encouragement and emotional support that will help you to grow.

stage 3

Journeyer

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 4

Maestro

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.
