STCC North America

“A really solid, well-designed programme which went through self-discovery and more teaching around the principles and application of the Hawkins’ Five Disciplines. The pace was good throughout and there was plenty of opportunity to practice and reflect.”

This highly experiential program is designed for individual coaches, organizational consultants, experienced leaders and internal HR practitioners seeking to develop a team coaching practice. Now more than ever, organizations are looking at how to motivate and manage their teams in a period of change and uncertainty.
This program has been run successfully for many leading global organizations in Los Angeles, Vancouver Island, Montreal, Tokyo, Beijing and in over 30 other countries.  It will be run virtually on Zoom by Dr Catherine Carr and Dr Hilary Lines.
Those completing the program will be awarded the Academy of Executive Coaching Certificate (AoEC) in Systemic Team Coaching© which carries 19 ICF CFP credits (3 Resource Development & 16 Core Competency).  This program is being co-sponsored and organized by Renewal Associates and the Academy of Executive Coaching.
The Systemic Team Coaching© Certificate doubles as the Foundation/first model for the Diploma program.  The Diploma program is  run in North America, London, Beijing, and South Africa.
The emphasis in the Certificate is on covering the theoretical basics of Systemic Team Coaching© and applying these to a practical case study simulation. 

Team Connect 360 (TC360) diagnostic instrument

AoEC in partnership with Peter Hawkins have taken his 20 years of extensive research and development in high value creating teams and created an on-line team diagnostic instrument Team Connect 360 based on his 5 Disciplines model.
On the program you will experience the instrument and learn how it can be used. Upon successfully completing the program you will become a licenced user and so have the option of using this instrument with your professional clients.

Structure of the program

Prior to the workshop you will be required to engage in two hours of pre-course work that will comprise of videos and reading around what is a team, what is Systemic Team Coaching and background to the Team Coaching simulation. This will give you a sound basis for undertaking a systemic team coaching assignment. The facilitators will build on this during the program to:
• Provide rich didactic context in which we discuss and debate different aspects of systemic team work and team coaching
• Use a business simulation to evoke coaching a team, being coached and applying the diagnostic TC 360 Report
• Take you through an experience of sculpting and interpersonal exercises to understand team relationships
• Guide you in a peer supervision group to apply the model and methods of the Hawkins 5 Disciplines to a team you are working in/with
• Work with our own large group process as a way of engaging live with the interpersonal dynamics and psychological models

The focus on the ‘systemic’ part of systemic team coaching was the real revelation
and across three days we covered a lot of ground.”

About Team Coaching

Unlike one-off workshops and team-building away-days, team coaching enables teams to identify and resolve their challenges over a programme lasting several months – resulting in deeper learning and more sustainable change. It usually involves coaching the team together as well as one-to-one coaching for individuals.
Through our ‘systemic’ approach, team members also focus on the various systems in which they operate. Most team coaching focuses exclusively on the team’s internal ways of working and relationships; Systemic Team Coaching looks more broadly at the influences outside the team, not just within it.

Who’s it for?

This team coaching training programme is for experienced coaches and OD consultants who already have some team coaching or facilitation experience and who want to deepen their practice. Typically, participants include experienced organisational consultants, executive coaches, business/team leaders and training managers.
