Here is the last important thing about coaching a team for success: Be supportive of individual development (Maxwell, 2004). The fact is that not all of your team members may be able to perform all the tasks or have the necessary skills for every part of the project being worked on (Coaching for Team Performance, 2011). With this being said, team members may have to help other team members learn new skills, this is known as cross-training. This is sometimes needed so that each person is able to meet the team expectations and follow its supporting processes. Each and every team member has a different level of readiness when it comes time for them to take the steps necessary to change. As a team coach, please, be sensitive to these differences, and do what you can to find the resources that will make it possible for each team member to reach their development goals. You see this is why you see so many teams that are not working well together, their team coach had no idea of what it meant for a team to work cohesively. The teams that are working well together, their team coach knew that the most important part of working together was being able to get along, and share with one another as opposed to trying to do everything on one’s own to make themselves look good. If the team has a bad coach, then they are going to be a bad team. If the team has a mediocre coach, they will be partially successful. If the team has a coach the strives for excellence, then they will strive for excellence in all that they do. Let’s review. It’s one question that we talked about at the beginning of this whole thing. It is the basis for this entire thing. What drives most organizations? Teams. References: Maxwell, Dr. John C (2004).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
