Years ago, we’d join a company and be there for most of our working life. That gave everyone time to learn how to get along and work together. Today we change jobs more often, have more pressure, uncertainty and change to get to grips with, and the pace and complexity of our lives has increased. We don't know each other so well anymore. So how can you ensure that this doesn't slow down your organisation's progress or hinder performance?
Bringing people together, away from the day to day, gives them valuable time to connect, reflect, learn and share ideas. Ramp it up and they can make significant shifts in embracing change, co-creating a thriving culture, and achieving a shared vision.
As seasoned facilitators we ensure that every moment of an offsite is used well, creating an environment that brings insight, new creativity, robust solutions, clear decisions, and commitment to following through.
We'll design events with you that get to the heart of what you want to achieve. We'll get people engaged, connected, keen to participate, debate, be honest and share responsibility for success. And we'll manage the group dynamics in a skillful way that doesn't brush them under the carpet nor allow them to impede progress.
If you're looking for an offsite that brings benefits during the event and way beyond, we'd love to come and talk with you.

Good organisational performance relies heavily on the strength of its teams. When people combine their different experiences, skills, perspectives and styles they can solve complex problems, create new solutions and deliver results far better than they could alone. Yet people don't usually start from the same place, and may not want to end up at the same place either. So how can you all get there?
This is where team coaching can make a significant impact. Whether you're the senior leadership team or a cross functional team of managers, we can support you in getting clear and aligned, in building a culture where feedback is the welcome norm, and where people collaborate because they really trust each other.
Our team coaching will help the team to make the glue it needs to stick together through good and bad times.
Sometimes people in relationships get stuck. Stuck in conflict. Sometimes resisting change, often losing hope. And sometimes, despite all attempts, they can't get unstuck.
We can help. We believe that fundamentally, people have an innate drive to make things better. To have good relationships. To take pride in their work. To achieve positive outcomes. We'll help them to tap into that. And build on it.
Using our extensive experience and knowledge of interpersonal dynamics, communication styles and skills, and what makes people tick, we can enable people to have conversations and reach agreements they never previously thought possible.
Through formal or informal mediation, round-the-table facilitated meetings, a series of team activities or a combination of interventions, our fresh approach can move them from negative and stagnant to positive and purposeful.
If you want to resolve situations that are bringing people down and hindering progress, talk to us. No guarantees but we aim for our mediation to leave people with more skills and understanding than they had before the conflict even started.
