Coaching for Global Team Leaders and Their Teams
It is possible that 50% of global teams do not achieve their team objectives. If this statistic is correct, global teams are wasting vast quantities of time, money, and energy.
Leading a global team is a challenge for any leader. It is a complex challenge to work together with others who may be in different time zones, who have different cultural preferences for communication, different models for decision making and problem solving, different orientations toward time, and different expectations about what is appropriate in developing working relationships. In addition, for some team members, English may be their second, third, fourth, or fifth language.
GCN begins working with the team by strengthening the leader. Coaching for the leader of a global team empowers that leader and can often get the team off to a good start or back on track without spending extra time and money to work with the whole team.
GCN coaches work with the team leader to:
- Develop personal, intercultural, and global leadership competencies
- Assess the challenges that he/she and the team faces
- Use a GCN design for an Intercultural Working Agreement to get the team to leverage differences and create a foundational agreement so the team functions at its best.
