I had the honour of presenting my paper, "Looking Outside-In : A Context Driven Approach to Team Coaching" at the 3rd International Columbia Coaching Conference, held at Columbia University in New York City on the 17th of October 2018. I'm happy to provide the paper and a link to the YouTube recording of my presentation at the conference, as part of this post below.
In keeping with the conference theme of Systemic Coaching, this paper considers the importance, impact, assessment and incorporation of external context to team coaching and proposes a practical framework for coaches to leverage. The role of coach as sense maker of external context is examined. The paper seeks to serve as guidance to team coaches working within an unfamiliar contextual terrain and support them in avoiding the pitfalls of a context oblivious approach.
