Team Development

The key to a successful organisation centres around high-performing teams. Placing an emphasis on cohesion improves internal communications, employee wellbeing and achieves results.

You may be part of different teams within your role. You may feel more comfortable with some in the team dynamic than others. But do you know why? And do you know how to make the whole team work more effectively?

Having worked with a variety of teams over the years, studied the psychology of team dynamics and researched the best methodologies, we know that understanding yourself and those around you is the first step. Everyone is different and varying approaches will be needed to stay on the same page. We will devise a programme that best suits your needs and guarantee the results will have a long term impact. 

How effective is your team?

Team Retreats

We can arrange team retreats to facilitate either a particular topic, for instance a strategy review, or to focus purely on improving team cohesion and effectiveness. You could even do a combination of the two. 

Previous events that we have arranged for our clients include off-road activities, team building games, dinners, external speakers and facilitated problem solving.


Whether you have a small team and you’d like us to facilitate your selected training courses or you’d like us to create a white-labeled learning experience for a number of staff members, we have various options to choose from.

Topics specifically for teamwork could include: 

  • Team Coaching – As well as our one-to-one coaching, we also offer group sessions for teams. 
  • Team Assessments – We work with a number of Wiley products including Everything DiSC®’s suite of learning experiences and assessments to deepen your understanding of what makes you, and those around you, tick. 
  • Five Behaviors® Development – Another Wiley product, Five Behaviors® of a Cohesive Team is specifically designed around team dynamics, improved communication and results.

The Benefits of an Effective Teamworking Strategy

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.” – Patrick Lencioni, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable.

Engaged and collaborative teams deliver the best organisational outcomes. Effective communication is crucial to achieving results and has the added bonus of supporting an engaged workforce.
