CMI working in collaboration with International Coach Federation (ICF).

As leaders and managers, you belong to teams at all times, whether you manage them or are a team member.

A team may be newly formed or have been in place for a long time. Its members may feel at ease with each other, or they may perceive tensions. Its environment may be seen as supportive or challenging.

  • Is there a high level of trust in your team?
  • Is your team working together to the best of its abilities? 
  • Are team members aligned around a shared purpose? 
  • Are ground rules clear and applied? 
  • Is your team interacting efficiently with its environment and managing its stakeholders properly? 
  • Are all voices heard?

How do you strengthen these key characteristics of a high performing team?

We must never forget that teams are living systems, not manufactured products that can be built to prescribed proportions, built to order, functionally correct”, said Peter Hawkins, author of Leadership Team Coaching.

Team coaching is emerging as a powerful way to manage change, and create high performance through increased member/employee engagement.

Claire d’Aboville and Liz Wren will introduce team coaching and present how it helps address challenges and opportunities met by the group. They will share models, theory and practice. In this experiential session you will feel the power of some of the tools available to work with teams. Both Claire and Liz are established professionals in the field of coaching and they bring complementary skills and expertise to discuss this fascinating topic.

Liz Wren

Liz Wren

Highly competitive and driven in her early adult life, Liz spent a number of years travelling the country and abroad competing in athletic multi-events to international level. This didn’t stop her enjoying a delinquent four years at Art College, where she started her first business making ‘designer’ sports kit. Somewhere along the way she also started in a career in advertising.

She worked in various brand agencies, eventually running a company for a hands-off owner, before starting her own business in the borrowed corner of a friend’s office and growing it to 10 full time employees.

Spotting an opportunity in the market for top quality early-years childcare for working parents, she and a partner also started a nursery business. Their reputation and nurseries grew, with 6 units, 350 childcare places and a t/o of over £2m.

Running two businesses and having a family (3 girls, now young adults), persuaded her to reconsider her energies. She arranged a management buy-in, and sold the nurseries to a leading American nursery chain.

After a brief break, Liz qualified as a performance coach, and since 2008 has worked with a broad variety of SMEs focusing on strategy, performance and growth. Noticing the particular challenges that business owners face in managing their internal teams, she trained with CRR Global in Organisational and Relationship Systems Coaching. In recent years she has specialised in facilitating, coaching and training teams to think and work systemically.
