Team Coaching - leadership development coordinate and maximise high performance
“Anything worthwhile is never achieved alone. It requires solid team work to achieve those big, audacious goals that you are proud of to be a part of”.
Supporting Leadership Teams
Claudia utilises a well defined and proven framework setting the team and their individual leaders up for success. Helping teams to achieve their objectives, providing insights in their teams’ processes and dynamics, she helps them to decide HOW to coordinate their efforts leading up to higher performance.
According to Katzenbach and Smith (2003), organisational performance and change management authors, a team can be described by: “a small number of people with complimentary skills, who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals and approach, for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.”
Claudia helps with the WHAT, HOW and WHEN of the teams, challenging their thinking and behaviours, supporting them with the tools for gaining new insights and adopting new approaches for best outcomes. Imperative is that the team members realise that commitment to sharing insights and intentions, negotiating and compromising are all essential to align the several functional objectives to get to best practices.

What to expect working with Claudia and her team of Team Coaches and Facilitators.
Team Coaching Leadership Development Programs have one thing particularly in common, and that’s the fact that the best outcomes are achieved if the programs are co-created and in close partnership with the client.
These programs are highly customised for the client’s specific organisation and dynamics, and are built on the foundation of shared knowledge and insights, providing a range of evidence based methodology and frameworks.
Claudia collaborates with a trusted group of high-profile executive coaches/facilitators (associates) to optimise the customised leadership development programs, regarding both content and delivery
