I want to thank Daria Rudnik and Natalia Gulchevskaya for the professional support they have provided during the team coaching of my team. We've been working with a team of 5 people for a period of 6 months (fall 2020 – spring 2021). The coaches helped me as a team leader to identify priorities that helped me to focus on more systemic and strategic tasks. I have restructured the work of my department so that the team members became more independent in decision making, communication with the executive team, and starting up new initiatives. For my team, the team coaching helped to understand their roles more clearly, boosted cross-communication and collaborations, and mutual personal and professional support.
The other very important benefit of this team coaching program is that it was not a short-term result but we now have principles that we use in our day-to-day work. And I thank the coaches for that.
