Team Coaching

The need for connection and purpose is more important today than ever.

The digital evolution may be a blessing in some ways, however, it is also brings many communication misunderstandings and more stress at work. Everything has to move fast, and on top of that, teams are constantly evolving. Reorganizations, new employees, departures or long-term sick colleagues do not make things easier.

A strong team proactively takes the time to slow down and reflect. Both on what the team does and also how it functions. And that makes it more effective and cohesive. With team coaching, you pay attention to working together, strengthen mutual connections and build a strong foundation for your team.

“Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.” -Steve Jobs

A valuable competitive advantage for the organization. A sense of belonging for the individual.

By choosing team coaching:

  • You build trust within the team by sharing experiences and uncovering the person behind the position
  • You create psychological safety to allow the team members to be vulnerable, and you develop skills to name challenges in open dialogue in a constructive way.
  • Things become clear and people feel involved so that decisions are supported and people dare to hold each other accountable.
  • You gain insight into the unique talents and complementarity of individual team members.
  • You evolve as a team from ‘every individual for themselves’ to team spirit and shared responsibility for the mission you share.

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” – Phil Jackson

Every team is unique

There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to team coaching. That is why we always start the coaching process with an intake interview, during which we try to clarify the team’s development needs. If appropriate, we will also conduct a team scan: this is a short questionnaire that clearly identifies the strengths and development points of the team. After that, I put together a tailor-made program and start working with your team. How long the program lasts and how often we meet depends on the situation. So that, too, is tailored to your organization and concrete needs.

In team coaching, I find it important to create a safe environment in which every team member dares to express their opinion and everyone’s voice is listened to. Difficult topics are not avoided. Each member of the team is part of the system and helps design the next step.

With Team Coaching:

  • We create a safe environment, in which trust and vulnerability are central, so that participants have the courage to express what is going on below the surface.
  • By no means do all noses always have to be pointed in the same direction. Revolutionary ideas often arise just when opposing or different opinions are expressed and heard.
  • We deliberately seek the opinion of the minority in order to evolve from harmony to co-creation. In this way, you achieve richer, stronger and more sustainable decisions that are supported by the team. Everyone gets a voice and is heard.
  • We don’t shy away from difficult topics.
  • We use techniques such as mirroring to expose certain dynamics and patterns within the team.

“Sophie heeft mij toegelaten een aantal zaken op een rijtje te krijgen en in te zien in welke professionele omgeving ik mij goed kan voelen. Hierdoor was ik beter in staat te beoordelen welke keuzes/ opties mij dichter bij mijn uiteindelijk doel konden brengen. Sophie slaagt erin om een veilige omgeving te combineren met een no-nonsense aanpak!”

“The first time I met Sophie, it immediately felt right. It clicked!
Sophie is an empathetic and has a very effective and pleasant way of coaching. During my coaching sessions, my “search for a new career” was addressed. I felt supported and appropriately challenged so that I quickly gained insight to take my next steps. In the meantime, I have written out my “Why” and I am ready to walk my path.
Thank you for ‘the click’!”

“Sophie zorgt er voor dat je meer gaat nadenken over wat je wel en niet belangrijk vindt in een job en op welke manier de work-life-balance in evenwicht kan zijn. Je krijgt doorheen de coaching meer vat op de zaken waar je nu tegen aan loopt en je krijgt opnieuw ‘grond onder je voeten’ wat je loopbaanmogelijkheden betreft. Na slecht vier uur loopbaancoaching bij Sophie, had ik een vrij helder beeld van de weg die ik moet gaan in de richting van een nieuwe uitdaging, ik kreeg handvaten om mijn loopbaan letterlijk in eigen handen te nemen. Ik kreeg ook vertrouwen in het feit dat je wel degelijk zelf je loopbaan kan vorm geven door regelmatig te reflecteren over wat je belangrijk vindt en welke talenten en competenties aanwezig zijn bij jou. Kortom, Sophie zorgt voor een zeer kwaliteitsvolle loopbaancoaching. Ik zal in de toekomst zeker nog met haar contact opnemen, wanneer ik ‘vast’ komt te zitten.”

“Sophie is a very enthusiastic coach who will receive you with a lot of warmth and expertise. You feel at ease with her right away. Together with you, she manages to find the crucial points that block you from achieving what you want very quickly. Her toolbox to address these points of attention is impressive, and she knows perfectly which tool to use at what time. This way you will undoubtedly achieve your goals! It will be a fascinating journey in which you can become more and more yourself and be in your strength!”

Aline De Pelsemaeker

“If you are looking for sustainable change in your life and work, I can highly recommend Sophie as a coach. The speed, wit and passion in which she dares to move you just outside your comfort zone is unique. Sophie offers a safe environment in which you can be completely yourself. Based on her many years of experience in the business world, she works with unique tools to take you on your own unique path. In empowering you to get started with your talents and opportunities and create lasting change for yourself. Thank you Sophie, you are just top.”

Annika Lietart

“Sophie is a coach who offers you a safe place where you can be vulnerable. A place where your feelings, issues, concerns, doubts may emerge. She holds up a mirror in a respectful, warm and empathetic way.

Through her range of tools, years of experience in the business world, but above all through her genuine interest in you, Sophie knows how to make you think and grow. She guides you in a connecting way to be more in your strength and to have insight into your talents and possibilities. I am very grateful to know her.”

“Sophie heeft ons de voorbije maanden heel sterk geholpen bij de coaching van één van onze leidinggevenden. Daarnaast is ze ook met het hele team aan de slag gegaan om de team dynamics te verbeteren. Hierbij zette ze heel sterk in op verbinding, zowel tussen de teamleden onderling als tussen de teamleden en hun leidinggevende. Sophie connecteert makkelijk met iedereen, creëert rust en wint makkelijk het vertrouwen. Door haar jarenlange ervaring in het HR-domein heeft Sophie heel wat kennis opgebouwd en die past ze op een hele fijne, pragmatische manier toe. Ze stelt de juiste vragen en helpt mensen meer en beter naar zichzelf te kijken. Ook wij als werkgever werden regelmatig gedwongen om in de spiegel te kijken wat ook ons de zaken vanuit diverse perspectieven liet bekijken.”
