Personal Coaching

We love to help build teams! We have been facilitating team building sessions since 1999, and have facilitated many hundred team building sessions. It remains a core aspect of our business.

Here’s our definition of team building.

“Invigorating the team around agreed direction and goals and establishing new patterns of interaction that enable your team to work together in a vibrant and cohesive manner”.

We specialise in Senior Team Building, where the most important outcome of team building is to transform the collective leadership provided by that team. According to Anderson and Adam’s most recent research, discussed in Scaling Leadership, no team in the organisation can sustainably operate at a higher level of effectiveness than the Senior Team.

So, what steps are required to transform a Senior Team? Please see our six steps below.

Team Purpose

Align around a senior team purpose in the context of a clear and compelling organisational strategy, and clarify the means of measuring and re-measuring progress toward that purpose.

Team Processes

Develop an agreed system of meetings and methodologies for collective decision making.

Team Effectiveness

Assess individual and collective effectiveness, and clarify the means of measuring and re-measuring growth.

Team Norms

Establish senior team norms around which the team can hold each other accountable.

Team Growth Edges

Create a deep shared understanding about the developmental growth edges for both the individuals and the collective, and build a strong commitment to each other’s growth on those edges.

Scaling Senior Team Leadership

Develop plans to take the next level(s) down, on this journey of transformation.
