The growing complexities of a world disrupted by technology, climate change and pandemics require organisations to shift from just focusing on the individual to the broader ecology. Systemic team coaching co-creates a partnership to add value beyond the individual, creating collective impact within organisations, society and the wider ecological system.
Are you a leader seeking to build and develop high-performing teams as the cornerstone of organisational learning and value-creation with impact beyond your organisation in an increasingly complex world?
We use Team Facilitation with the Birkman Method and Systemic Team Coaching to partner leaders in the development of their teams. This includes:
- co-creating a Team Alliance for Psychological Safety and Trust to support Team Purpose, Team Contracting, Team Learning and Value Creation
- enhancing communications and collaborative work
- leveraging on unique and diverse strengths, interests and needs of team members to enhance performance, engagement and satisfaction
- bringing in the stakeholder voices and perspectives which includes the wider ecological system
THE BIRKMAN METHOD
We coach leaders in use of Birkman insights to develop their teams, leveraging on unique and diverse strengths, interests and needs of their team members to enhance workplace performance, engagement and value creation.
Team Coaching using Birkman insights can benefit newly formed teams, teams seeking to strengthen how they work together, and teams seeking higher levels of team performance.
Sample pages of Reports frequently used in Team Coaching include:
- The Birkman Basics Report which profiles the strengths, interests and needs of each individual on the team
- The Group Birkman Map which maps the profiles of individuals and the team, highlighting areas of strengths, hidden needs or stress points as well as areas of conflict or tension to focus on to improve team effectiveness.
Team Coaching Sessions and Team Workshops using Birkman customised to the needs of Teams, facilitate better self and other-awareness and the co-creation of a Team Alliance and Team Development process to foster psychological safety and trust. This will enhance team learning and collaboration for team effectiveness, value creation and to optimise team success.
Team Workshops are also customised to meet specific needs of Teams. Examples of Customised Birkman Workshops include Bringing Out the Best in Your Team, Managing Stress with Birkman, and Managing Conflicts with Birkman
SYSTEMIC TEAM COACHING
The different forms of Team Coaching, like Team Facilitation, Team Building and Systemic Team Coaching can help you and the teams you lead to become high-performing teams that create value beyond their organisations.
Hear Professor Peter Hawkins explain the difference between them and the benefits of Systemic Team Coaching:
The challenges for today’s leadership teams include:
- Managing the expectations of different stakeholders
- Needing to both run the business and to transform the business to be relevant to changing external environment and customer needs
- Being members of multiple teams
- Working with systemic conflict
- The world becoming more complex and interconnected
- Hybrid Working and Teams
- Major challenges not in the parts but the interconnections of the organisation and its wider system
Systemic Team Coaching enables Teams to be purpose-led, stakeholder-centric, agile and adapt at learning and partnering and attending to all three time horizons of past, present and future to co-create greater value than the sum total of what each member brings.
Studies that support the business case for Team coaching include Price & Toy (2017), McKinsey & Company (2018) indicate that Team Coaching outcomes include increased profitability, financial and economic returns. Systemic Team Coaching equips leaders to meet these challenges in a complex, unpredictable and “messy” world by building high-value creating teams.

The Birkman Method supports my goals, behaviors, needs and stress with scientifically-backed data. Knowing what I am already good in, what makes me tick is no longer a mystery to others at the supervisory level.
Taking action on what I became more aware of at the Workshop, I increased the frequency and quality communication with my team to build better bonds via having communication outside of the work agenda and to know each other better. What I observed after three months was that there was improved synergy with my team and I was able to understand their perspective better. There was increased interaction between teams and in how the work was done.
I became more aware of my communication style, especially in relation to my level of assertiveness with others and its impact on my team. This led me to be more conscious about how I am communicating with others and helped to foster better working relationship and communication with others.
I learnt how to recognize my stress behavior and manage it to be a better supervisor to team and to grow as a person. I am also more accepting of others’ differences or limitations and able to look at the bigger picture by focusing on others’ strengths.
The Workshop helped me to be more patient and sensitive to others especially those who are not the same as me.. Rather than jumping into conclusion based on my own perception, I should try to find out more and have open conversation. I observed that when I am more open and accepting of others around me, the situation and tenseness lessens, the energy becomes brighter with laughter. I will continue to grow and learn along the way. Be a happier person.
I learnt to speak up and expressed myself and needs more. I am also finding new ways of expressing myself. I found that I am happier and people understand me better.
I realised that I needed “me-time” and scheduled “Me-time” at least once a week like taking walks after work to unwind and be alone. I feel more energised and looked into providing exercise opportunity for my staff for self-care.
