Putting the “I” in Team: How to Incorporate Individual Data in Group Coaching

Shared leadership and group development work have emerged in recent months as some of the most in-demand topics in our coaching community. That’s hardly surprising. In this uniquely stressful and challenging time, wise leaders and organizations are embracing a leadership model that helps people support each other, rather than relying on individuals to shoulder a broad and often conflicting range of tasks on their own.

Following a recent workshop on team development, MRG’s Consulting Psychologist Andrew Rand tackled a practical question that arises when doing group work: how do you incorporate individual scores into group development work? In this video, he speaks from experience about how individual scores may (or may not) be integrated into a group session.

Note: Drew refers to the LEA Enhanced Composite Report here, but his suggestions can be useful in any assessment-based team development work that you’re doing, including sessions based in the IDI Team Development Report.
