High Performing Teams


Do you need to take action with your team to enable your collective best? It might be that you need to:

Launch a new team, include new members or revitalise a mature team, with purpose and passion;
Clarify team priorities, creating a shared understanding and agreement on use of resources;
Create a plan, develop skills and generate momentum with stakeholders relationships and partners;
Create greater trust, improve relationships and ease communication.

Gill How can work with you and your team to create events which have style, impact and performance outcomes. Using latest thinking about team development, team coaching and engagement, these can be one-off events, occasional events or a series of commitments over time.

Here are some recent examples:

A new Finance Team of 17 getting to know each other quickly, to bring their best capabilities together fast, to deliver superior and robust results to tight timescales;

Head Office staff in a global freight forwarding network jumping ahead and setting up a new business venture, allocating roles and responsibilities in line with their individual strengths;

A number of team workshops to develop and then cascade the strategy for essential children’s services within a local authority, and the subsequent impact on service quality;

The IT function of an Asset Management firm generating a global sense of priorities to meet business needs, exceeding demanding user expectations over time.
