Coaching the Team at Work

David Clutterbuck
Authors:
David Clutterbuck

Much has been written about coaching individuals, yet there has been little investigation of coaching teams at work. Even in organisations that have made strides towards becoming coaching cultures, the focus has been on the individual, not the team. This failure is now a serious weakness in the abilities of managers at all levels. In this book, David Clutterbuck bridges the gap between what is known about team learning and coaching and the practical experience of managers and team coaches. He answers such questions as how team coaching differs from individual coaching, what skills underpin effective team coaching, and how team coaching can be made a sustainable, automatic process.

He made his Test debut for England in 1999 against South Africa and in May the following year scored his first Test century against Pakistan. In 2002, Michael scored 900 runs in just seven Tests and was named PCA Player of the Year. Michael was appointed captain of England in 2003, the same year in which he was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year and reached the top of the world rankings. In 2005, Michael captained the team that reclaimed the Ashes in an historic series against Australia and was awarded the OBE. Injury prevented him from captaining the team that travelled to Australia the following year, but on his recovery Michael returned to the Test side and surpassed Peter May's record of twenty wins as England captain. His final total of twenty-six wins makes him the most successful Test captain of all time. Michael Vaughan resigned from the captaincy in 2008 and in June 2009 he retired from all cricket.
