Dynamic Team Leadership Coaching Towards Business Results
A Barosa-Pereira 2020
Limited published research has examined team coaching function processes. Through an extensive systematic literature review, this research explores team coaching knowledge and proposes a new construct by adding the Dynamic Team Leadership meta-theory (Kozlowski, Watola, Nowakowski, Kim and Botero, 2009). The concept of Dynamic Team Leadership Coaching is defined, showing the complexity when using team coaching as a leadership function, where all the members and the context must be considered. Three empirical studies were conducted to answer the main research question about what does this function implies in practice. Semi-structured interviews done next to thirty-one coaches were analyzed through content analysis. Data collected from the qualitative research was used to define the Dynamic Team Leadership Coaching construct (first study), and to identify and describe the characteristics of a dynamic team leadership coach (second study). Results served the development of the Dynamic Team Leadership Coaching Scale (DTLCS) which intends to measure dynamic team leadership coach’s competencies in practice (third study). The results showed that DTLCS has adequate psychometric properties and can be used to access team coaching competencies next to team leadership. Findings suggest potential outcomes of dynamic team leadership coaching to business results with fifteen team leadership coaching behaviors predicting team performance, team satisfaction, and team viability, namely when using team adaptation as a mediator variable. This research contributes to advancements in team coaching and team leadership research and supports the development of team management strategies.
