The missing how-to manual for being an effective team leader

The Art of Coaching Teams is the manual you never received when you signed on to lead a team. Being a great teacher is one thing, but leading a team, or team development, is an entirely different dynamic. Your successes are public, but so are your failures―and there’s no specific rubric or curriculum to give you direction. Team development is an art form, and this book is your how-to guide to doing it effectively. You’ll learn the administrative tasks that keep your team on track, and you’ll gain access to a wealth of downloadable tools that simplify the “getting organized” process. Just as importantly, you’ll explore what it means to be the kind of leader that can bring people together to accomplish difficult tasks. You’ll find practical suggestions, tools, and clear instructions for the logistics of team development as well as for building trust, developing healthy communication, and managing conflict.

Inside these pages you’ll find concrete guidance on: Designing agendas, making decisions, establishing effective protocols, and more Boosting your resilience, understanding and managing your emotions, and meeting your goals Cultivating your team’s emotional intelligence and dealing with cynicism Utilizing practical tools to create a customized framework for developing highly effective teams

There is no universal formula for building a great team, because every team is different. Different skills, abilities, personalities, and goals make a one-size-fits-all approach ineffective at best. Instead, The Art of Coaching Teams provides a practical framework to help you develop your group as a whole, and keep the team moving toward their common goals.

Outstanding resource I’ve read a lot of books about developing teams, and this one is unquestionably one of the best. Interesting and clearly written, the book offers a balance between theory and practice (with, for example, many sample handouts that you can use immediately with teams). Also, with purchase of the book, you get access to many of these resources in digital form on Elena Aguilar’s website. If you’re an educational leader interested in transforming your school, I highly recommend this book.

What I have come to love and deeply value from both Elena’s books and her … Elena Aguilar’s first book, the Art of Coaching, fundamentally changed the way I engage with individuals in my life. Though I read it as a novice coach, it is not an exaggeration to say that it had ripple effects in even my most intimate and long-lasting relationships. True to form, her second book, the Art of Coaching teams, is making a noticeable impact on how I interact in teams, both those I lead and those I am a part of. What I have come to love and deeply value from both Elena’s books and…
