What is Team Advantage?
Team Advantage = Team + Game (plan) + Coaching
These three elements create a unique experience with ongoing coaching providing a missing link when compared to most team building programs.
The Coach is a partner who works with the team to take full ownership of a game plan to achieve an extraordinary goal that they identify.
The Coach can be someone inside the company or an external, professional coach. The Team moves through six key developmental stages in just 16 weeks. There are also four phases of the Team Advantage:
- the Pre-Game phase where the coach and team learn about each other and set the stage for the process;
- the Kick-Off Workshop which is an off-site meeting where the team charter and game plan are created;
- the coaching phase which includes 12 conference calls over 16 weeks; and
- the celebration phase where the team builds on momentum created by the program.
The materials used for Team Advantage are published by Pfeiffer Publishing and include a Coach Facilitation Guide, a Team Leader Guide and a Team Member Guide.
