Our team coaches work with leadership teams of all shapes and sizes. Our engagements range from single interventions through to systemic team coaching assignments lasting eighteen months or more.  We work with teams as they tackle real-world challenges, in ways that develop team effectiveness through enhancing collaboration between its members and optimising individuals' contributions; and helping them to be really clear about what the team is supposed to do within the wider organisation of which it is a part and then focus on delivering its link in the value chain.

The top teams with which Praesta work can be:

  • Main board
  • Executive board
  • Operating board
  • The boards of subsidiary companies
  • Teams of functional professionals
  • Partnership boards

We focus on those areas that will give greatest return for you and your business, in the short and long term, often including:

  • Reviewing the top team’s strategic direction and priorities
  • Resolving conflict between individuals and groups
  • Building a new team
  • Developing partnership behaviours across team and stakeholder communities
  • Raising the leadership impact of the top team

We spend time with you understanding the business vision, needs and goals, your role in the marketplace, the culture of your organisation, and what steps you have taken to date to bring about change. We also agree with you the diagnostic work that we will undertake. During this time we work closely with the executives leading the team to ensure what we are doing meets their needs.

The inputs to such events include:

  • Diagnostic engagement where the coach will meet with each participant in advance of the workshop
  • The use of appropriate psychometric tools considered appropriate
  • Bespoke workshop design to meet the specific needs of the top team
  • Real time facilitation of the workshop event with all outputs captured and committed in real time

The outputs will vary but the following are a sample of some distinct outputs

  • Defining a clear vision
  • Clarity on the mission of each team member and the collective mission
  • Agreement on appropriate values
  • Understanding stakeholder and shareholder perspectives with clarity
  • Assessing strategy and defining new purpose and goals
  • Assessing tactics, reviewing what works and what does not work
  • Agreeing the what and the how of leading the enterprise
  • Engaging the top team in joined up leadership
  • Bringing alive the top team as the role model leaders to the enterprise
