Using Figure 4-5, Thompson (2013) attempts guide this process by creating a reference for various coaching strategies used to develop motivation, coordination, and ability (p.102). This chart identifies what these strategies are and gives some different ideas for implementation and how a coach might implement the plan in order to produce a more effective team. In order to have an effective team, leaders must establish and encourage many different behaviors designed to build team effectiveness including deciding on and creating team purpose, providing necessary resources for the team members, removing situations that can be devastating to the team, and encouraging team collaboration and communication (Hackman, 2005). Managers must be clear about the goals, purpose, and direction of the team. Furthermore, they key aspects of the exhibit presented in our readings regarding structural, contextual, and coaching contributions to team performance processes emphasize the importance of planning and preparation prior to the construction of organizational teams and then the importance of team maintenance (Thompson, 2011, p. 102). This tool will be most effectively implemented in modern team driven leadership styles, by assisting leaders in establishing a clear purpose with adequate—but not intrusive—supervision and competently ensuring that the team is structured, staffed, and coordinated properly. As such, this exhibit also enables managers in understanding team context in which managers are able to focus on ensuring systems are in place to acknowledge and correct behaviors as well as to provide information and education to team members. Without these established, enforced, and monitored aspects, organizational teams will ultimately fail. Organizational leaders also need to have the ability and method of coaching members to help them achieve their maximum potential and commitment.
