Abstract

Coaching is a fast-growing trend and has gained much significance in the recent years. Research suggests that several organizations are looking at team coaching, as a great tool towards the achievement of collective goals which in return is expected to deliver an additional value through the creation of high-performing teams. Team coaching is distinct from individual coaching because in team coaching, the team is the client and collective performance is the goal, versus the individual focus of one-on-one coaching. The objective of the current study is to do an evidence-based coaching research and its effect on MBA teams’ performance that is based on the coaching model developed by the leadership development program at the Goizueta Business School. The sample of the present study comprised of 170 first year Full Time MBA (FTMBA) students in 31 teams and 46 selected second year FTMBA Leadership Coaching Fellows (LCFs) who serve as coaches to the first year FTMBA student teams. The results of the paper shed some light on how coaching not only an effect on team performance has as seen in the FTMBA teams but also has a positive effect on the academic grades achieved by the teams in group assignments. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY: The objective of the paper was to do an evidence-based coaching research and its effect on MBA teams’ performance that is based on the coaching model developed by the leadership development program at the Goizueta Business School. Goizueta Business School: Leadership Coaching Fellows Program. The purpose of the Goizueta Leadership Coaching Fellows Program is to help 2nd Year MBA students understand, practice, and enhance their skills of providing individual and team performance feedback. This is done by training them to be peer-coaches for 1st Year MBA students in selected team settings of the curriculum and one on one coaching sessions. Fellows learn how to coach and to be coached. They work with an Executive Coach one-on-one, develop essential skills as a leader to provide individual and team coaching, and be provided the opportunity to engage with business and community leaders in various settings.
