Praise for High Performance Team Coaching

“High Performance Team Coaching advances the field of coaching

by filling the gap for a practical, yet thoroughly evidence-based model to

guide team coaching practice. Drawing on the authors’ considerable experience

and their recent empirical research this clearly written, well-documented

text provides actionable guidelines and practical strategies for working

with teams and makes a genuine and important contribution to the field.”

“Team coaching is gaining momentum as an extremely useful practice

for organizations. Unfortunately, most coaches and consultants who claim

to do team coaching are just repackaging their old group facilitation and individual

coaching services. Finally, we have a truly insightful guide that

makes the most of advances in team effectiveness research! This is a great addition

to the field. Best of all, it is a short, easy read for anyone wanting to

follow a practical path that can turn talk of high performance into reality.”

“High Performance Team Coaching (HPTC) is a fantastic resource

and a ‘must read’ for all Team Leaders and Coaches. The authors demystify

the concepts of creating and sustaining high performance teams and

how to lead and coach them. Built upon solid research and investigation

along with practical and relevant action steps, it is a resource that will help

move your team from average or good, to high performance in any context.”

“In their book, Peters and Carr provide a valuable foundation of the research

around high performance teams. Leaders and coaches will find their framework

for coaching high performing teams very useful in supporting their work.”

From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching


“As an experienced professional coach, facilitator and organizational consultant,

I support successful teams and their leaders to move to a higher level of

performance in order to achieve business results. I had the privilege of partnering

with Jacqueline Peters on a company-wide High Performance Team initiative

using the High Performance Team Coaching System. This system truly supported

the various teams and their team members to become increasingly aware of their

current state, what they needed to do to become a high performance team in the

future, and how they needed to get there. Although each team was unique, the

various team members became enthusiastic and highly engaged in the process of

becoming a high performance team. One team even gave a formal thank you

card to the leadership team for initiating the program – a first for this company!”

Praise for 50 Tips for Terrific Teams

“50 Tips for Terrific Teams is a treasure chest full of practical tools

and wisdom for all Team Leaders and Coaches. We will be drawing upon the

practices, tips, and techniques contained in ‘50 Tips’ to help and contribute to

the teams in which we are participants, leaders and coaches. ‘50 Tips’ is a great

companion resource to the authors’ High Performance Team Coaching book.”


– Lillas Marie Hatala and Richard Hatala

Co-authors of Integrative Leadership: Building a Foundation

for Personal, Interpersonal, and Organizational Success


“I found reading 50 Tips for Terrific Teams to be more of a journey than

a read because as I was walking through it, I was motivated to evaluate my team

and where we were at. It is a good leadership guide in the way it is written because

it is crisp in the research and leadership principles, not overdone. The addition of

practical actions made it easy for me to apply the tips immediately to my new team.”

“I love it when someone comes up with a book that is concise, clear,

incredibly useful, and easy to work with. We all live and work with other people,

and we all need to get better at it. Here is a collection of great ideas that

you can put to use almost any day in just about any organization. It is a great

resource for anyone working with teams, and every leader and team member

should have one on their desk. You can pick an idea to try this week, try another

tip the week after, and keep harvesting new insights for months to come.”

“While many leaders and coaches are well intentioned, they are frequently

disappointed with their outcomes when trying to create high performing teams.

50 Tips for Terrific Teams has brilliantly integrated the research (which few

of us have time to sort through) and translated it into practical suggestions that

will absolutely help create the desired shifts. This guide is user friendly and is the

closest thing to having your own personal sage. I would recommend this book

as an essential tool for anyone who leads a team or works with or on a team.”
