Expanding Your Group and Team Coaching Toolkit - Systems Part 2

Welcome back to another Expanding your Group and Team Coaching Toolkit. This week we're
exploring the topic of SYSTEMS as a part 2.

When we hear the word Systems it can take on several different meanings - from systems that help us scale and create consistency (the focus of my last post), to systems as in the context of being part of an interrelated complex environment.

As a graduate student in the early 1990s, exploring the intersect of community engagement, facilitation and environmental studies, one of the most influential voices of the time was Peter Senge's writing around the Learning Organization, of which systems theory was one part. His book, The Fifth Discipline, was released in 1990, with five different "disciplines" forming the foundation of a learning organization:

Personal Mastery
Mental Models
Building Shared Vision
Team Learning and
Systems thinking
Reference: Peter Senge, Fifth Discipline, 1999

As a leader within the humanitarian sector throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, incorporating these elements became a large part of team success as we worked to support complex, national, regional and global issues. Being based for most of those years throughout Central and South America, and the Caribbean, systems theory was also influenced by many of the Latin American writers and critical educators of the time. For example, Paolo Freire's writing around PRAXIS, and the intersection of Practice and Theory.

Today, as a coach, sharing these resources with teams has become second nature.

Systems thinking challenges us to think in dynamic, not static terms. It encourages us - as team members, group members, and coaches - to think about the interrelationships, and connections, of ourselves as a team, as ourselves as a team in  an organization, and as ourselves as a team in a larger macro-context. Many times it may evoke a need for a paradigm shift, especially if our current mental models do not support the dynamic context we operate within.

As a coach what is your level of awareness around systems? Paradigms you operate within? What are the tools you have available to explore any of the five areas outlined above by Senge?

This is a rich area of exploration and many coaching programs are now incorporating this. I would personally direct you to the work of:

Peter Hawkins, whose Systemic Team Coaching framework is grounded in a systems model. You can learn more about his work, models and practices at this Podcast he recorded as part of the Team Coaching Podcast Zone -  

Center for Right Relationship and their work around Relationship Systems Coaching.  Find out more about their training at CRRGlobal.com

In a group coaching context systems are also present, given that we as individuals are always part of a larger whole. What are you doing to help people explore the systems they are part of?

Questions to consider:
1. What does systems mean to you?
2. What does systems mean to your client?
3. What approaches and questions could help people expand their thinking around systems?
4. What is the paradigm I operate from?
5. How does that help and hinder?
6. As a coach, what's important for me to explore further?

Enjoy your exploration this week,
Jennifer

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Specials: Learning Lab, Conversation Sparker, Year End Planning Retreats

Many of you have enjoyed family time as you have celebrated Thanksgiving this week. For me in
Toronto, our Thanksgiving was last month as we brought in the harvest. The ripple effect of US Thanksgiving is always here in Canada - a small turkey is in the oven for tonight (without all the fixings), and I think many of us spent some time today being grateful and giving thanks to those who have supported us this year.

Thank YOU for your support and for joining me for one of our CCE programs, or via one of my books, or during a speaking engagement I may have led. As I've celebrated my 15th year in business it's been very inspiring to see where people are taking their learning!

Expanding Your Group and Team Coaching Toolkit - Systems at the Heart of Your Business


Systems are at the heart of any business. The word systems means a lot of different things to different
people. In one of my current writing projects I was curious how many different definitions there are around systems. I took a look over at vocabulary.com who provided these nine different definitions. From systems as a method or set of practices, to working with a system such as an ecosystem.



Over the next few weeks of Monday posts we’ll be looking at systems in several of these ways. First, systems for your business as a group of team coach. Next week, systems in terms of working with the system of a team or group.

Why are systems important for business.

They help us scale and grow

Systems help with replication and ensuring that things are done similarly across a business.

Over at the Coaching Business Builder blog, I have included a variety of posts around systems, including a Systems Checklist for you to use. Be sure to check it out:

There are several main areas coaches will want to explore for their own business including:


Financial Systems:

o What needs updating?

o Cash Flow review

o Review sales

o Review expenses

o Invoicing

o Accounts Receivable

o Review cards and credit -what are rates like?

Marketing Systems:

o Review website – about page

o Review website – current offerings up to date

o Marketing material up to date

o Marketing/promo material in stock (cards, post cards etc)

o Consider 15 – 20 different titles. Pick the best one.

o Graphics updated

o Identify how this will be shared? (i.e. other channels)

o Consider graphics

o Draft graphics

o Links are current?

Social feeds up to date (FB, Instagram, Twitter, Linked In)

Communication Systems:

o Include photo of you

o Schedule posts for Facebook

o Schedule posts for Instagram

o Schedule posts for ______

o Is the content mentioned in your newsletter?

o Let current clients know about the resource

Client Systems

o Files up to date?

o Logs up to date

o Agreements/letters

o One thing I said I would do…

o Onboarding materials

o Other: _______________

o Other systems:

o Write down ideas and/or draft repurposing while it is fresh

o Back up completed

o Content created

o Networking

o Publishing

o Plans up to date

Trackers up to date?


When coaching many (coaching groups or teams) it’s important to get systems in place before your work expands too much. The number o different clients you work with can warrant a focus on systems early in the process.


When working with groups

When working with groups, especially groups of entrepreneurs, it may be useful to take a look at the five areas of systems listed here. Which ones need attention? Which ones are well established?

Are there best practices which group members have emerged which can help each other?


When working with teams:

When working with teams, business systems can play a key role in ensuring consistency and alignment across the team. Systems play an important role in sharing information, pointing to resourcing required, and ensuring access to key information.

What systems does the team have in place? What’s working? What’s not?


Six Questions:

What systems exist?

What role do systems play in terms of supporting the team or group?

What’s working?

What’s not?

What needs attention?

What best practices can people tap into so they don’t have to reinvent the wheel?

Enjoy your reflections,
Jennifer

Expanding Your Group and Team Coaching Toolkit (25): Execution






This week brings us to the 25th week of the Expanding Your Group and Team Coaching Tookit. This
week's focus is all about EXECUTING, getting things done, and DOING!

One of the core coaching competencies with ICF is designing actions. This goes hand in hand with creating awareness. Doing without being grounded in what's important, our values, our visions, our beliefs, may not get traction. It may not create the momentum needed for results in today's context.

This week's blog post gets you thinking about the different things you can be doing with teams and groups to support execution. This may involve getting the important things done that people put off (individually or collectively) as well as creating an accountability support, either real-time, peer lead or after the fact.

As we approach the end of the year (or even the end of a quarter, or month), clients are often yearning for "closing the open loops" on projects. This is where immediate support on DOING can be of value.

Over the last decade the Virtual Business Planning Retreats I have hosted have always been given huge thumbs up by clients. They have appreciated the time earmarked for them to do both PLANNING and DOING. It was the many years of experience in leading these Virtual Retreats first as the 90 Day Biz Success VRs and then the Inner Biz Leader Virtual Retreats, that ultimately laid the groundwork for my 2018/2019 publications  - PlanDoTrack (for virtual and remote professionals) and Coaching Business Builder.

If you are a group coach, consider how you might incorporate bursts of DOING during your calls or as part of field work. As stated earlier, be sure that this is grounded in people's values and vision. Earmarking even 10 minutes of a regular call can start making inroads for people on things that they are stuck on. In a group context, this might involve:
 providing the group with a series of reflective prompts so they can write out an introductory brochure they have been putting off:
Putting people in breakout to speak through and work through together an introduction they are crafting about their services
OR earmarking 10 minutes of a call for people to take action real time in doing the thing they've been procrastinating on - filing, making a call, drafting a blog post.

What could you add in, in short bursts with your groups to hold more space for getting the important things done?

The power of peer accountability can be significant even in the virtual space This is where participating in longer virtual retreats - 4 hours - focusing on planning and doing can be a great support.  Check out info below about upcoming PlanDoTrack Virtual Retreats to support you in planning for 2020!

I've been seeing how valuable real-time working sessions are for several years now, from the Getting Organized Virtual Retreats I co-hosted a decade ago, to the upcoming PlanDoTrack virtual retreats. This month is also National Novel Writing Month and I've been hosting a series of Friday afternoon writing sprints for fellow writers. Two more are scheduled for November 15 and 22 (130 - 215 pm ET in my zoom room - check out the first two here).

If you are working with teams, execution and getting things done are also important. Some of the most powerful tema coaching work I've done in recent years has involved me being embedded as part of teams, where I join them (in the shadows or as a partner) as they move through high stakes events and programs. The spot coaching and rapid implementation they can undertake is very powerful. 

Teams will always benefit from a clear, shared plan, and one that is visible. How are you ensuring that accountability around their action steps is not only part of your coaching process, but also part of their ways of working back at the office.

In your team coaching work, what can support for EXECUTION and getting the important things done look like?

Note, I'll be hosting several year-end PlanDoTrack virtual retreats throughout November and December for those who are looking for a virtual pause and planning session. The four hours focuses not only on your PLANNING for the new year, but also DOING -Getting into action around an important project which will be the foundation of your work next year, as well as spending some time on TRACKING - looking at your metrics. Check out the CoachingBusinessBuilder.com blog for a recent post on metrics. The 4 hour retreats are a deal at only $129 US. Join me November 14th, 29th or in December. Reserve your spot now.

What do you want to put into practice with your work? Enjoy your week,
Jennifer

Expanding your group and team coaching toolkit (24): Metrics that Matter


My October monthly article for my PlanDoTrack newsletter recently focused on “Metrics that
Matter”. What are the guideposts that are helping the teams you are working with track and understand their metrics?

In launching the PlanDoTrack workbook and planner late last year, and the Coaching Business Builder Workbook and Planner eighteen months ago, a significant focus  in conversations with individuals, groups and teams, has been on tracking, and noting data. As we reflect on data gathered there can be some interesting pictures, and patterns that emerge. Data is data and when we track it on a regular basis, it’s easier to see what the “True picture” is.

Throughout the workbook planners there are many different ways for people to track data on a daily or monthly basis - through the Monthly Daily Trackers, the One Line a Day or in the Monthly Content trackers.

As a coach, some things you might want to track on a regular basis are:

  • Sales
  • Website visits
  • Downloads
  • Revenue
  • Reads
  • Sample Sessions
  • Products Developed
  • Speaking engagements
  • Likes
  • Numbers of clients
  • Hours Billed
  • Net Profit
  • Social visits
  • # of books sold
  • Operating Revenue

What else do you have metrics around? What else might you want to note?


With groups, consider what types of trackers will help them. Could a wheel of life or leadership included at the front end of coaching, be revisited mid-point and/or at the end, to help the team understand what progress they are making?  Would a daily tracker help to capture lessons learned? Would a journal provide the written story for them?


If you have a copy of Coaching Business Builder or PlanDoTrack, check out the Monthly Daily Trackers I’ve included in the Content Planning Section (Section 5). There’s one that will provide you with space for capturing key activities, and one where you can capture key thoughts of the day.

With teams, the starting point for a team coaching engagement may be a team assessment providing them with data they can incorporate throughout their coaching, and work, journey.


At the team level, helping people note where they are at so they can make the small micro-shifts which are needed. Have discussions with the team around what they want to track - collectively and individually.


Questions to consider:

What do you want to track?
What data do you have available?
What do you notice about patterns, changes, etc?
When will you dedicate time to note and review your data?
What story can you make up about the data you have available?
How can this inform your decisions and priorities?

Enjoy your conversations,
Jennifer

Expanding your group and team coaching toolkit (23): Momentum


We are a few days away from the start of November, which is often considered the “last mile” of the year, by many. It can be the time to make sure we get things done! Today’s topic is all about momentum. Sometimes getting things done isn’t as much about making huge steps happen, but leveraging the momentum we’ve created.


The tagline for my two recent planner workbooks  - Coaching Business Builder and PlanDoTrack (for Remote Professionals)  - is Daily Steps + Consistent Action =  Momentum™


In effecting change, it is often not about the huge steps we undertake but the smaller, consistent actions we undertake that make such a big impact over time.


I was interested to see if I could track when I first started talking about momentum with my clients.

Here’s what I found from a newsletter article to my 90Days BizSuccess Groups back in the mid-2000s:

Building Momentum Towards Your Goals - Create The Tipping Point 


Momentum = To Move Forward

Momentum is a powerful tool in the achievement of goals. Have you ever noticed how things literally start to snowball and take on a life of their own, once a certain point is reached?

Many times momentum is gained through these very steps you are taking throughout the 90 Day BizSuccess Program. Momentum is most often about the cumulative impact of smaller actions not just one giant step.

What are you noticing about momentum you have gained in the throughout this program? What's getting easier? What's becoming effortless? What can you leverage to get more momentum?

What's the one area you want to ensure the momentum sustains itself within?
(Originally published as part of the 90 Days BizSuccess program support emails)


When working with groups such as business owners,  it can be useful to explore the topic of momentum on the individual lens to help people with planning, or reflecting on what steps they are taking consistently to create some movement.


When working with teams, helping teams understand their collective momentum, is important. What are the things helping the team overall – this may include alignment, focus, clarity etc. Have the team identify what the things are that are helping the team get some traction and momentum.


Just like a snowball rolling down a hill, momentum can eventually take on alife of its own. It can be invaluable to focus in on what is creating action and some “life of it’s own”.





Creating momentum is also an important part of the coaching process.

Consider incorporating some of these questions to your upcoming conversations:

What does momentum mean for you?

What specific actions are you taking on a regular basis, consistently to create momentum?

Where are things “Taking on a life of their own”?

What’s helping with momentum (clarity, goals, alignment etc)?

What is a quick win for you?

What is going to help you be successful?

Expanding Your Group and Team Coaching Toolkit - Identity (22)


This week’s building your group and team coaching toolkit brings us to the topic of IDENTITY. It helps us describe "Who we are, How we Do things, and What’s important to us”. In any context we may have multiple identities – my identity as a team, as an individual, as a parent. Our identity is a key part of organizational culture work.


In the team coaching context, it’s likely that we will be working around topics including team identity.

 Exploring the notion of WHO We are can take us in to a number of different areas including:
Who are we as individuals?
What makes us unique?
What are our styles?
What are our strengths?

HOW We Do things speaks to our NORMS. What’s acceptable and what’s not acceptable on this team or in this group. What are the behaviors and practices which are acceptable? What is taboo?
The clearer we can be with our norms, the more safety is created. In a team coaching context, it may become apparent that alignment and conflict exists because norms are not clear, and therefore, behaviors are also not aligned. Spending time with a team clarifying the ACCEPTABLE and NOT ACCEPTABLE behaviors, while also talking about what happens when these are violated helps to build connection and trust.

What’s important to us speaks to our values. What are the things that we will stand up and fight for? What will we go to bat for? 

Working with Identity as a group or team coach will take us into a series of conversations -from strengths and styles, to values, and norms. What are the conversational touchpoints you want to make sure you have built into your engagements?
Questions to consider around identity:
1.       Who are we?
2.       What is important to us?
3.       What is acceptable on this team?
4.       What is taboo?
5.       What are the 3-5 things we value most as a team (consider how we work, who we are, etc)?
6.       What do we want to make sure new members know about us, our history and our strengths?

Enjoy your conversations,
Jennifer
