    Job Purpose 

    The team coach serves as a mentor for ten to twenty employees. The team coach meets for short sessions with each employee once a week. During those meetings, the team coach should listen for several opportunities to improve company dynamics including themes expressed by multiple employees, performance that individual employees are themselves proud of, or that they are complimenting others on, and suboptimal performance requiring intervention or additional coaching.

    In order to fully understand the role of each employee, the team coach will also meet weekly with project leads and management. In these meetings, the Team Coach will learn the status and purpose of each project, as well as objectives for each employee. The team coach will also feed insights back to project leads and management when appropriate.

    As the team coach, you should have an honest curiosity for improving your own performance as well as those of others. To that end, you are expected to maintain an ongoing education of books and materials related to employee management, professional communication, performance, human resources, and other relevant topics.

    Finally, because the team coach meets individually with employees, coaches must also develop a thorough understanding of company policy and working understanding human resources roles and responsibilities. This role includes working collaboratively with process improvements, HR responsibilities, product operations, and other cross-functional teams and projects.
