Coaches play an essential part in the development of High Performance Teams. Coaches work with the team sponsor to develop the team charter. Coaches teach essential elements of High Performance Team Building and establish the initial team agenda. Coaches help the teams through the process of establishing team norms and getting organized. Coaches lead team building exercises and are present during team meetings to encourage High Performance Team behavior. Coaches are not team leaders or meeting facilitators. Coaches are experienced team builders and consultants who intervene only when teams become stifled, frustrated, or lost.
