Building a team that is aligned, accountable, resilient and impactful is hard work but the benefits can change the entire game, both for your team members & for your organization. Here's how we're different:
We are comfortable working with uncertainty & complexity.
We believe that leadership teams create the most impact when they're able to let go of "having all the answers” and instead, are able to trust each other, develop a shared purpose and take small, fast actions towards that purpose.
Our methods are evidence-based AND practical. We leverage:
Deep leadership practice & expertise in senior leadership roles in global, matrix organizations.
Hundreds of hours of individual coaching, team development & facilitation experience.
Coaching methodology & ethics from the International Coach Federation, the Institute of Coaching at Harvard & the Global Team Coaching Institute.
Research from the field of Positive Psychology & Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
We take the time to get to know all members of the team.
Learning how each member's unique gifts & strengths contribute to the diversity of the group will help you get the most out of the individuals in the team, as well as the collective team.
We aren't afraid to "go there" with teams or their leaders.
We are able to both illuminate & address conflict or unhelpful behavior. Growth happens where there is discomfort. .
We understand the complexities of teams, because we've lived it.
Having both led & been a member of leadership teams, we bring an understanding & empathy of what it feels like to be in your shoes.

TEAM COACHING ENGAGEMENTS
All team coaching engagements start with building a solid foundation. We partner with teams to develop a common understanding of how well they are currently working together & build a foundation of psychological safety, trust and commitment & alignment to a common purpose.
We then partner with teams over a specified time period to coach them through business transformations or helping them to shift mindset and behaviors to improve their alignment, accountability, resilience and impact in service of the organization and its stakeholders.
Depending on the circumstance, we can also deliver custom facilitated workshops to support the team in reaching an agreed outcome. Examples of workshops we have run include:
- New Team Leader Start-Up: designed to build trust and alignment between a new team leader and their team to enable faster delivery of results
Increasing Leadership Resilience
Leading in a VUCA world
Creating a Purpose-Driven Career, and more
The process starts with a FREE introductory call that allows you to assess whether we are the right fit for you. There's no hard sell - its simply an opportunity for us both to assess whether we'd enjoy working together. Great team coaching is predicated on great chemistry between the coach & the client - if we aren't the right fit for you, that's okay!
We will also use this time to gather background on your challenges so that we can develop a custom proposal for you based on your needs, budget and time frame.
360° ASSESSMENT - LEADERSHIP CIRCLE PROFILE
While most 360 tools are only deployed on a 1:1 basis, this tool is also highly effective for a group of leaders. It explores not only how individual leaders can improve their leadership practice & business results, when run for all individuals in a leadership team, it can uncover opportunities for the group as a whole to create more impact.
The Leadership Circle Profile is a proven model that creates results. Most 360° profiles focus on either management style and personality, skills / competencies, or underlying behavioral tendencies. The Leadership Circle Profile combines all of these areas into one assessment that measures leadership effectiveness & helps leaders understand the underlying assumptions that drive their behavior.
We love it as a 360° tool because extensive psychometric analysis has gone into the development of the Leadership Circle Profile and it is statistically valid in every way that validity is measured. There is also a proven correlation between improving leadership effectiveness through The Leadership Circle approach and the delivery of better business results.

CULTURE OF LEADERSHIP - COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENT
The Collective Leadership Assessment delivers a powerful “litmus” test of your leadership culture. The Collective Leadership Assessment reveals valuable data: it tells you how your people view their current leadership culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between data on the current culture and the desired outcome instantly reveals key opportunities for development. Furthermore, it measures how your leadership culture compares to that of other organizations.
It can be used at the organization level, or to conduct a thorough and valid assessment of the impact that leadership team has on your culture. The results will:
Establish a compelling rationale for change.
Focus leadership team development efforts.
Delineate cultural challenges associated with acquisitions, mergers, and restructuring plans.
Correlate leadership to productivity, profits, turnover, and other bottom line metrics.
