TEAM COACHING is one of a variety of different ways of developing a team. We have identified five main team development modalities: team facilitation, team training, team building, team consulting, and team coaching. Each of these has value, and each is appropriate in certain circumstances. It’s important to be clear about which modality you’re using at any given moment, as well as the outcomes you’re likely to achieve.

NOTE: The Corentus approach is just one of several different approaches to team coaching being used successfully in the world today. We honor and respect our team development colleagues around the world, many of whom are our partners.
