Leading teams causes frustration for many managers and executives. Many reasons account for this dilemma, from lack of a clear goal to unclear roles, personality conflicts, unrealistic timelines and budgets, poor communication, and having gaps in the talent needed to succeed.
A coach can help the team leader and members of the team discover what is working well on their teams and what can be better. This is especially true for ad hoc teams, which are teams that come together for a period and then disband. Little work has been done about these types of teams, although they are quite common in organizations—and a matter of course in professional services firms like consulting, technology, and engineering as well as life sciences companies at various stages in their pipeline.
