Our May 10 Luncheon Program features ICF North Texas current President, Mike Caracalas.
In addition to being a PCC and CPCC, Mike Caracalas is a Certified Team Performance Coach (CTPC) by Team Coaching International. He partners with leadership teams in large organizations who want to produce better results in a sustainable way. Mike’s interest in team development began while gaining his M.A. in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, and it continued during his 20 year corporate career serving as a trainer, consultant, and member of dozens of organizational leadership teams. Over the past 8 years, Mike has developed a Team Coaching practice in which he uses the Team Diagnostic Assessment© to help teams establish a baseline understanding of their performance and develop concrete plans of action to improve.
Teams exist within organizations to produce results. Too often, however, teams fall short of achieving the results they set out to accomplish. Or maybe they do achieve their results, but with a high cost to team morale, quality, and sustainability. High Performance Teams succeed on both levels: 1) they produce meaningful, positive results; and 2) they do it in a sustainable way that leaves team members energized and motivated.
In research that will be shared in this presentation, only about 12% of teams report being High Performance Teams. That leaves nearly 90% of teams failing to come close to their potential. Fortunately, teams have a powerful solution available to them: Team Coaching. Distinct from individual coaching– and even from group coaching– Team Coaching requires a specific set of skills, and it also requires the Team Coach to play a wider range of roles. The same research referenced above demonstrated an average 20% performance improvement after the deployment of a Team Coaching engagement. In this presentation, we’ll define Team Coaching, share a powerful model for High Performance Teams, and explain the skills and roles necessary to coach teams to high performance.
