Transcend Team Coaching

Transcend Team Coaching is dedicated to professional excellence in team coaching education and practice.

Professor David Clutterbuck, Transcend Team Coaching partner and globally recognized thought leader in the world of Team Coaching,  and Peter Hawkins have estimated that the world will need an additional 150,000 team coaches to satisfy demand over the next 3-5 years. This was based on a series of interviews and research with a large sample of global client organizations and their forecast of focus on team and intended investments in team development. 


Team coaching is an eclectic field that integrates aspects of other disciplines and theories including systems thinking, behavioral science, psychology, psycho-dynamic analysis, systems theory, organization behavior, and organizational culture. It could be described as Organizational Development fuelled by coaching skills with a strong systemic approach. Research suggests that while team coaching currently represents 9% of overall coaching delivered, it is this kind of coaching that is predicted to grow the most over the coming two years. While one-to-one coaching can be a very powerful way of improving an individuals’ performance, team coaching offers more collective benefits with extremely positive effects across the entire organization.

The Team Coaching Opportunity and Impact

Team coaching is an exciting and challenging emerging professional dimension of coaching. It is challenging… because teams are complex, adaptive systems within another complex, adaptive systems that interact with other, complex adaptive systems. And it is exciting – because organizations that want to thrive are investing in the creation of high-performing, value-creating teams. 


Imagine a leader of teams (or teams of teams) who is highly skilled at creating the conditions to enable their teams to be focused, effective, and sustainably producing results that are more than the sum of their parts.  Imagine a team leader who is team literate, able to create a team coaching culture with new and existing teams, and understands how to get the most out of their teams and teams of teams.


Imagine a highly effective one on one coach who can work with leaders, team members and coach the team itself.  A well-rounded professional, confident and capable team coach who can deliver measurable results,  applying a wide range of interventions to enable teams and team leaders to new levels of efficiency and excellence. 



Imagine an internal coach who can create significant value for teams and their leaders within the organization. Utilizing their exceptional coaching and team coaching skills to create value within the systems they are a part of. 


Imagine a Human Resources and/or Learning and Development professional who is able to add value through team coaching, team wisdom, and team leadership. Supporting teams, team members, team leaders, and internal coaches to develop high-performing learning teams that create value.

Becoming a Team Coach

Team Coaching: Building a Coaching Culture with Work Teams

From 1-2-1 to (professional) Team Coach

Team Leaders as Team Coaches

Team leaders are increasingly required to deliver results through teams and teams of teams. Organizations are reorganizing with teams at the heart of their long-term capability strategies.  We are expected to build and lead teams that are agile, self-directed, highly engaged, safe, and increasingly effective.  Virtual teams are the new normal and the next normal will require increased levels of virtual team leadership effectiveness and excellence.  This program will help team leaders become team literate, skilled in team development, provide tools to assess and diagnose teams, create a team coaching culture and ultimately lead highly effective learning teams. 


If you are a team leader or a team of team leaders who want to develop your ability to lead teams with a high level of excellence and skill then this program will create a strong framework of skills, approaches, and practical techniques to enhance your team leadership.  Ask us about the different benefits of attending a public program or having an internal team coaching training program customized for your organization.

HR, L&D and Internal Coaches to Team Coaches

If your organization is designed or being redesigned to focus more on achieving results through teams, then this program is for you.  You will gain the tools, perspectives, and skills to help it to develop and to coach leaders and teams.  Learn how to leverage the impact of internal coaches as team coaches, how to help team leaders develop, and how to help teams learn where they can apply their energy to achieve results.  


You will, with expertise and professionalism, be able to support leadership, stakeholders, teams, and team leaders as they embrace team-based ways of doing.  You will be able to help diagnose and navigate the team journey with confidence based on global best practices.


Internal coaches who see the value or have a vision for teams, either from themselves or led by HR, will benefit from increasing their ability to coach team leaders and, if applicable, to coach teams.

From One on One to Team Coach

This program is aimed at experienced individual coaches and team coaches with a solid foundation of experience and expertise in one-to-one coaching, who want to add team coaching to their portfolio.  Some less experienced coaches may have a meaningful experience in working as a team leader, team leadership, or working with teams as a consultant, trainer, or facilitator. Please speak with us if you are interested and not sure if you qualify.  


This program will enable one-to-one coaches to develop themselves as team coaches or enhance their ability to work with team leaders.  It aims to ensure they are competent and confident in extending coaching approaches to helping teams become more effective and eventually develop the capability to coach themselves. The context of the program is organizational teams, with particular emphasis on executive teams and project teams, although the tools, techniques, and theory also apply to other teams.

The Global Accreditation Journey

This is an exciting time for team coaching globally. Both the EMCC and the ICF have presented Team Coaching Competencies. The EMCC has created global standards and an accreditation pathway for team coaches and for team coach training programs.  The Global Team Coaching Institute, in partnership with David Clutterbuck and Peter Hawkins, was created and launched in 2019 with a focus on online team coach training. Organizations will be on the lookout for professionally trained and accredited team coaches.  The ICF has not yet announced plans for specific accreditation for Team Coaching programs or coaches, though we anticipate this will come in the future.  Your opportunity now is with the EMCC to receive your Individual Team Coaching Accreditation at the Practitioner level.

Globally Accredited: This program is approved for 40.5 CCE’s from the ICF.  Team coaches who work with clients are also eligible to complete additional assignments and assessments to achieve the ITCA Practitioner level from the EMCC. (Additional nominal costs will apply but the total fee will be less than doing it directly through the EMCC)
