Team Coaching – “…is an interactive process through which a team coach both supports as well as challenges a team to accelerate its development and performance over a given period of time (e.g. 4 to 12 months).  Team coaching can be leveraged to increase results, to enhance employee engagement, to drive organizational change, to foster the development of leadership cultures, and more.” – Krister Lowe, PhD, Host of the Team Coaching Zone Podcast

#051: Creating Intelligent Teams: Leading with Relationship Systems Intelligence

Join Dr. Krister Lowe and today’s guest and pioneering figure in the field of team and systems coaching–Marita Fridjhon–for this episode of The Team Coaching Zone Podcast. Marita Fridjhon is CEO and Co-Founder of CRR Global, Inc.–an ICF accredited coach training school–and the Creator of the Organization & Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) Program. Her primary focus in coaching is on systemic change, leveraging diversity, creative communication, deep democracy in conflict management and the development of learning organizations.

Marita was a guest on the TCZ podcast last year in episode #020. The show was titled: “The Dreaming Nature of Systems: How Team, Executive & Business Coaches Can Work with What’s Emerging.” Marita is now back a year later to share an overview of her recently published book: “Creating Intelligent Teams: Leading with Relationship Systems Intelligence” which she co-authored with Anne Rod. Themes explored in the episode include: Why we need intelligent teams; the 5 principles of intelligent teams; the distributed nature of leadership in teams and systems; competencies of intelligent teams; the 3 phase approach to help teams discover and work with their intelligence; culturally intelligent teams; and more. Marita also provides listeners with two free resources available on the CRR Global website: 1) a benchmarking tool for creating coaching cultures in organizations; and 2) a white paper on the 5 principles and Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSI).

This episode provides listeners with a taste of the insights, tips and tools that await them in this “must-read” book on team coaching! Enjoy!
