Team Coaching sessions provide teams with an opportunity to reflect on what works well and where further improvements could be made. It enables individuals to understand more about each other and to focus on what is important – both to the team and to individuals.
Denise has significant experience in managing people and creating high performing teams across all sectors. She understands how teams work and the impact of reactive behaviour on working relationships. Team Coaching sessions ensure a safe, non-judgemental space where courageous and meaningful discussion is encouraged.
Team coaching sessions are ideal for:
- Senior management teams
- Managers and their teams
- New teams
- New team members / new manager
- Teams working virtually, based in different locations
- Teams dealing with restructuring, rapid change or uncertainty
- Any team wanting to improve working relationships
When people get caught up in the day-to-day practicalities, working relationships pay the price so team coaching gives people an opportunity to spend time together to focus on:
- What is important to each individual
- Managing and appreciating differences in relationships
- Co-creating solutions to existing challenges
- Developing skills and behaviours
- Moving forward together and being successful
A range of individual and team profiling tools are incorporated into sessions to deepen the learning experience. These help team members increase self awareness and understand more about their strengths as well as the strengths of their colleagues. Profiling tools include MBTI, Strengths Profile, DISC, Belbin and Discovery Profile.
You decide what best meets the needs of the team and the business, whether that is one full day, one half-day or a series of sessions over a set period of time. After an initial enquiry, Denise will speak in depth with you taking the time to thoroughly understand the desired objectives. Contact can then be made pre-session with individuals of the team to gain their perspective and understand their needs. In addition, some pre-session reflection work is helpful to enable team members to kick start the development process.
Team coaching sessions are informal, informative and inclusive. Having the right space with minimal interruption increases the chance of success for everyone. Team coaching sessions can be held on or off-site at a location convenient to you. Having an external facilitator can help you to:
- Work more effectively
- Set goals
- Generate new ideas
- Bring different perspectives and new questions to discussions
- Ask the difficult questions
- Manage emotions
- Draw out knowledge
- Make decisions
- Hold accountability
Denise is an amazing coach who has gained my total respect and trust. I tried for a long time to find a coach that challenged me professionally and whom I trusted to challenge and coach me personally. Denise is intuitive and creative in her coaching and pushes me in a way that no other professional has done before. I admire and respect her ability to tune in to the issues in hand and to apply the right amount of questioning and support to enable me to find answers that address today’s challenges. I highly recommend Denise.
I have experienced Denise’s coaching and training, at a one to one session, and also a formal training session at Mersey Maritime Ltd. As well as incisive coaching expertise, Denise provides very practical tools for personal development, which proved invaluable to me during a time of significant career transition. I have one of Denise’s strategic planning techniques drawn on my office noticeboard, and use it regularly. Denise has a unique and highly effective approach. No jargon. No loud, over-demonstrative presentations. Just solid and insightful training and coaching.
Coaching supported me through a career change. I now work for a much bigger company in a completely different sector and I am receiving some great feedback. The scope of the role is bigger, the salary is bigger, the package is better and my whole standard of living has improved.
The biggest benefit of coaching to me professionally was the ability to prioritise the strategic and operational goals needed to take our charity forwards and to bring coaching in to help others. We have now started to roll out coaching to everyone within the organisation.
Denise helped me to take my business to the next level. Anybody wishing to develop themselves should really take the time to speak with Denise. She is highly inspirational, immensely personable and has the skills and attitude to make a substantial difference to her clients.
Working with Denise has helped me to see how much I have achieved in my role and how much Irish Community Care have grown in my time there. But I have also realised that there is still more work that I can do, so it reaffirmed my passion for my job and allowed me to refocus my energy. I also understand myself so much better now. Denise has helped me to reaffirm my self-confidence. I can recognise that I have strong leadership skills and a good vision where I couldn’t before.
