Coaching & Learning

Peak Performing Teams

Creating high performing teams is transformative.

A group working together to their full potential can step change performance, development, well-being and morale. Effective teams are the heart of a strong and positive work culture.
But helping an eclectic group of individuals, with their own set of skills, experiences, mindsets and agendas, add up to greater than the sum of their parts, is not always easy.

Our team coaching programmes are designed to harness team differences and explore collaborative ways of working that can unite a team to achieve, and over achieve, their shared goals. We start by assessing the team, establishing the key organisational goals and identifying the required improvements to deliver those goals. Everyone has a clear understanding of what they are aiming to achieve together.

On that solid foundation we create a coaching programme which can target the following areas:
  • Productive conversations with peers and team members
  • Improved personal and collective decision-making capability
  • Raising self-awareness and confidence
  • Being authentic
  • Role model behaviour
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Setting direction and pace
  • Steering through adversity
  • Communication skills
  • Visibility and approachability
  • Coaching skills
  • Maintaining momentum

Your success is our success. We would like nothing more than to be long term partners of yours so we make sure your culture, your language and your business personality is baked into the coaching journey you commission us to deliver. We will match coaches that are reflective of the change you want to achieve and lead by example.



What type of Coaching would my teams receive?


For organisations to succeed in today's environment, investment in developing and maintaining high performing teams is essential.

Coaching and Senior Team Facilitation can help teams to assess where they are and where they want to be as well as develop their cohesion as a team and their commitment to shared objectives.

It can also raise the skills and competencies of team members or help them to identify and address issues that are impacting their effectiveness.

At the outset of the programme, we focus on establishing the key goals and improvements required and ensure that all activities are aligned to these objectives. Effective Coaching and Top Team facilitation can deliver:

  • Better conversations with peers and team members
  • Improved personal and collective decision-making capability
  • Accelerated achievement of business goals


Should I develop my managers to have 'Coaching Conversations'?


We are strong advocates of embedding a coaching culture across an organisation. Managers who are confident and capable of having regular coaching conversations with their teams drive progress, encourage internal mobility and promote an open and positive environment for the entire workforce. Although it can take time to invest in, build and embed leadership coaching capability, the increase in trust and commercial benefits to the organisation can be dramatic and long-lasting. 



What is Workplace Coaching?


Although there are many things that you can do to support your employees in the workplace, one of the most powerful and impactful options is to develop a coaching culture.

To truly thrive, a strong culture of personal development supported by high-quality coaching helps to enhance performance, overcome barriers and accelerate skills development. This can be done in either a team or individual environment.

The most forward-thinking and progressive organisations recognise the value in embedding a coaching culture – offering workplace coaching support across all levels of a workforce, in a range of situations and developing the coaching skills of line managers is key to this.
