FRICTION is a team approach with a systemic stance, where we look at teams through various lenses, combined with constellations and stakeholder centered coaching to really get to the essence. Friction aims at bringing your team to a higher level. Teams discover in a contained environment what the underlying patterns and dynamics are and they experience having courageous conversations. We meet the team where they are, without judgement but with compassionate distance.

Where friction and fiction meet
The focus is entirely on the story the team tells – fiction- and the debate that rewriting requires – friction. The sessions aim at insight, experiencing, exploring new avenues, finding focus and anchoring that in concrete action plans.
For ambitious leaders who want to become more aware and who want to boost their team, Friction designed its open programme LAB. Read more…
A team is defined by the purpose it serves that requires collaboration, so it is more than the sum of the parts. In team sessions we zoom in on those aspects of the business eco system that are most in need of attention.
We figure out what is most urgent in the discovery phase in which we collect data in a team session, interview various stakeholders and/or do a 360 teamscan online (Friction is certified to use Team Connect 360 AoEC).
On the basis of those data and what we pick up with our senses as we talk to people, we design a coaching trajectory in co-creation with the team, team leader and/or sponsor and we contract for the work.
In the execution and engagement phase we work with the team during team away days, individual coaching and live coaching in meetings. Virtual team coaching is a definite possibility.
Review, evaluation & learning is the last phase
