Team coaching is an organisational practice with insufficient empirical and theoretical foundations. This research contributes empirical insights from a 12-month autoethnographic study focussing on what team coaches do and how they do it. We illuminate the micro-practices that inform sense making and team coaching approaches during emergent practice. The research contributes the new concept of modes of awareness for coaches to reflect on the knowledge and experience that inform multiple perspectives required for advanced practice. We build on existing conceptualisations of team coaching practice to present a framework of modes of awareness that integrates diverse streams of theory and practice.
