It’s hard to imagine anyone who has worked harder than Peter Hawkins to help team coaches race up a steep learning curve to develop a well-grounded, widely educated, evidence-based approach to systemic team coaching. The third edition arrived only three years after the second edition, a generous and timely gift for those called to support collective transformational leadership.
Well-crafted chapters address high-performing teams, transformational leadership teams, the history and process of team coaching, coaching a variety of types of teams including boards, dangers of team coaching, and advice to the C-suite in developing shared, collective leadership. Hawkins also introduces a new model for our times — ecosystemic team coaching. He provides a map for learning and supervising team coaching, as well as a menu of team needs connected to tools and techniques suited to each need.
