With an increased focus on organisational purpose, this accredited executive team coaching programme develops coaches’ capabilities and competencies to support the demand for better performing teams.
Team coaching helps teams work together - with others and within their wider environment - to create lasting change by developing safe and trusting relationships, better ways of working, and new thinking. This enables them to maximise their collective potential, purpose and performance goals.
The new Henley Systemic, Board and Team Coaching (SBTC) programme gives individuals:
- the opportunity to experiment and practice different tools, techniques and approaches
- ongoing feedback, mentoring and supervision
- an understanding of your ‘way of being’ to develop your capabilities and competencies
- ICF accreditation as part of Henley's ACTP programme*
The SBTC programme draws from the latest research on team coaching, group dynamics, systemic thinking and psychological safety and is led by inspirational tutors who are committed to the development of the highest standards in team coaching.

History of Greenlands
Records indicate that there has been a house on our Greenlands site for 500 years, although the house would have originally been much closer to the river.
Greenlands has been home to a series of notable families and individuals throughout its lifetime. These include Thomas Chaucer, son of Geoffrey Chaucer; Robert D'Oyley, Sheriff of Oxfordshire in 1573; Bulstrode Whitelock, Oliver Cromwell's Ambassador to Sweden and most recently WH Smith, who bought the existing house in 1871. Queen Elizabeth I is also known to have visited on more than one occasion, most likely when staying at her royal palace in Reading.
The site became the home of a new Administrative Staff College in 1946, first welcoming students in 1948. In 1952, after the unexpected death of Viscount Hambleden from whom the College leased the site, an opportunity to purchase Greenlands' 30 acres arose. The College was renamed Henley Management College in 1991, and following the 2008 merger with the University of Reading became Henley Business School. Today, the world-ranked Henley MBA, The Henley DBA and our executive education programmes are delivered at Greenlands.
