Globally, one of the fastest growing areas of coaching…
One of the architects of systemic team coaching, Peter Hawkins, is best placed to define the essence of systemic team coaching:
‘A process by which a team coach works with a whole team, both when they are together and when they are apart, in order to help them improve both their collective performance and how they work together, and also how they develop their collective leadership to more effectively engage with all their key stakeholder groups to jointly transform the wider business.’ – 2014
Unlike other team coaching methods, systemic team coaching looks with the team at how they work both internally in their team and across the organisation actively involving their team stakeholders in this.
For many organisations, delivering in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) environment hallmarked by rapid change, the ability of the organisation to navigate external challenges is shaped by the how the team respond.
By also involving team stakeholders, systemic team coaching enables the team to reframe and enhance the way it relates to and serves its business environment. It places as much emphasis on how it leads change with its stakeholders as how it functions internally.
In systemic team coaching, we work alongside the team as a partner across these five areas. Team coaching is done with the team never done to. Every step of our team coaching work is a partnership with the full team.

Systemic team coaching is designed to work with teams for lasting change. For many, even the most qualitative, stand-alone team development sessions or ‘away days’ where progress is made can fade away, despite the best of intentions.
Systemic team coaching is a true partnership. We work flexibly with the team for a period of time so that a higher level of team performance and a deeper sense of cohesion can be sustained for longer into the future.
