The organization’s success can depend on how well team members operate together and as individuals and how well they are positioned to make independent decisions on behalf of their organization. Being a coach involves being able to draw experience from several disciplines. Coaching is based on a partnership that involves giving both support and challenging opportunities to employees. The role of the coach is to facilitate the full expression of individuals through growth and change. Teams are an important building block of successful organizations. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance, or other similar goals, teams are the basic unit that supports most organizations.
