This kit includes three components:
Coach’s Facilitation Guide
This comprehensive Facilitator’s Guide package includes detailed instructions for setting up the program in either a one- or two-day kickoff session as well as for the 16 weekly follow-up coaching sessions.
Team Leader Guide
The Team Leader’s Field Guide outlines a coaching model, exercises, and tips for coaching team members toward execution and accountability. Additionally, there will be instructions and ideas for setting up the
game with the team.
Team Member Guide
This practical, easy-to-use guide and workbook outlines the model and process for team members, and provides information on ways they can excel in the execution and accountability phases of the game, and exercises to keep them on track.
Using Team Advantage can be a rewarding experience for any team leader who wants to accelerate a team’s performance. The program can be useful for either project/temporary teams or more traditional intact teams.
The Coach’s Facilitation Guide will be a valuable resource for any coach leading this process. Additionally, the coach should have the general qualifications and attributes of a qualified coach including confidence in guiding a team through a process, speaking directly to label observable behaviors, business acumen, facilitation experience and training in coaching and/or facilitation skills.
For the team leader, the Team Leader Guide is a detailed resource to guide them through the process. Additionally, it is important for the team leader to be open to accept coaching, be willing to drive the process utilizing their leadership abilities, and have a commitment to the team’s success.
For the team members, the Team Member Guide will help facilitate the process. Team members also need to be open to coaching and reflective on their own opportunities for growth, be fully engaged in the process, and be accountable for the results.
The Coach’s Facilitation Package (which includes all three components) provides all the materials you’ll need to understand and prepare to use Team Advantage. To deliver the program, you’ll need a copy of the Team Leader’s Guide for the Team Leader and a copy of the Team Member Guide for all participating team members.
The actual game is a 16-week process. The pre-game preparation will take 1-2 months, to allow for scheduling and pre-game interviews. It can be longer, if there is advanced coaching provided to the team leader. The advanced coaching is optimal for the best success, but not required to use this product. There are four phases in the process: pre-game preparation, the kickoff workshop which can be anywhere from 1 to 2 days, the coaching process as outlined above, and, finally, the celebration for achieving the goal.
