Why is team coaching important for the New World of Work?

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many organisations to shift to remote or more flexible working and although we don't yet know what the world of work will look like when the pandemic ends, it is safe to assume that remote and flexible working will become the new norm. 

Although remote and flexible working has many benefits, it also puts immense strain on teams, which you and your organisation may have already experienced. Some of the largest challenges teams face in the New World of Work include: 

  • Teams that traditionally communicate and collaborate face-to-face must adjust to communicating online
  • Individuals will be expected to be more independent, self-motivated and accountable
  • Onboarding new staff remotely can make it more difficult to develop an effective team

It has never been more important that teams know how to work well together and communicate effectively and team coaching can help you achieve this.
