The purpose of this paper is to respond to calls to elucidate the practice of team coaching and to shed light on the conceptual confusion between team coaching and other team based interventions. HRD professionals can utilise these ideas to challenge coaches to share the theory, philosophy and intent underpinning their own practice.

Team coaching is explored via autoethnography in order to utilise the lived experience of practice to engage in conversation with extant theory. The inner dialogue of the coach is made public and enables coaches to reflect on the findings in relation to their own coaching practice.

A tentative framework of team coaching is proposed. This framework may further our understanding of team coaching and provide an opportunity explore its use in a variety of team coaching contexts.
