Effective Team Facilitation

5 Themes for Learning

Our programs and services fit into 5 main themes covering essential leadership, teamworking and culture change capabilities today’s leaders need to support vibrant, healthy work cultures and high-performing teams…

Emotional Intelligence & Wellbeing

Emotional self-managementself-awareness and mindful action are essential capabilities for building healthy workplaces that support individual wellbeing and promote resilient, cohesive teams. We provide a range of Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness and Wellbeing clinics for leaders, staff and teams,  including: Leading with Emotional Intelligence, EI at Work (for staff), Teaching with EI, Social Intelligence in Teams, Mindful Leadership in Action, Mindfulness at Work (for staff)Trauma 1st-Aid self-help clinics and Building Resilience at Work. Tailored clinics also available.

Conversational Mastery

Understanding how the way we communicate impacts everything we do at work, becoming more conversationally-aware and mastering a variety of tools to improve the conversations you have is a key skill for great leadership and high-functioning teams. Our long-running Dealing with Difficult Discussions program is regarded a valuable asset for leaders at all levels, along with our general Constructive Conversations clinic and more targetted programs including: Positive Performance Conversations (versions for leaders and staff), Defusing Difficult Encounters, Persuasive Conversations, and Building Conversational Confidence.

Culture & Change

Constructive, flexible work cultures are vital for motivating high performance, commitment and productivity while encouraging cohesion, resilience and adaptability.  As well as providing strategic consulting around change and culture, we provide programs that support leaders in: Learning to Lead Change, Creating Constructive Cultures, Preparing People for Change, Developing Shared Visions, Leading Learning Schools and Building Change Resilience at Work.  …(More on our Change Services)

Building Better Teams

With a background of over 25 years consulting around team formation and development, our Working Better Together framework provides a flexible series of modules that can be combined in different ways to target specific improvement areas or a range of topics that suit particular team needs. Publicly, we periodically offer stand-alone programs like Building Better Teams, Working as One Team, Building Respectful Workplaces, Socially Intelligent Teams. We also provide an extended in-house Leadership Team Action Learning program for senior and executive teams that combines team learning sessions with individual leadership coaching.

Leadership, Facilitation & Coaching

Leaders exert a profound impact on the performance, culture, values and emotional climate of the people around them. Building leadership capacity at all levels is a central concern for forward-thinking organisations – who understand that today’s leaders need to expand their traditional ‘positional’ roles to become networkers, mobilisers, facilitators, coaches, values-stewards and engagers – leveraging learning to challenge prevailing mental models, mobilise coalitions, develop shared solutions and visions and create a supportive environment which unleashes innovation and learning potential in others. In addition to personal mastery and wellbeing programs, our Learning to Lead series includes Launching Future Leaders, Leadership Action Learning, Essentials of Facilitation, Facilitating Effective Teams, Learning to be a Coaching Leader, Mentoring for Managers. We also regularly provide individual coaching around leadership and personal mastery.

Awesome workshop!  Do it. You will want to practise the things learnt in it and it will really benefit your workplace, home and in general.  Great personal resilience-building ideas for turning negative talk into positive and resisting stress. I really wished the workshop went over a couple of days instead of just for one. Thank you once again. I really enjoyed your workshop and hope we get to do more in the future with you with our department.

Stacey S, Team Leader,
Housing Services

An interesting, informative workshop that enabled us to stop, think and reassess our resilience levels in a safe, non-judgemental environment. New ideas are always helpful and this course provided up-to-date information in an easy-to-follow format to assist with building personal and team resilience.  The resources were good, especially the personal Resilience-Building ideas. I learned some new skills and feel more confident now to pass on resilience lessons to my team. It was a shame the workshop was for only one day.

Greg C, Manager,
Housing & Homelessness Services

Awesome workshop mate. A lot of useful reference points. It was informative with real, well-researched facts and information provided to support what was being taught clearly linked to our jobs and personal life situations. I was definitely engaged. It all made sense. I feel more capable and got a boost of confidence as well.

Les H,
Housing Services

Definitely worth coming along. A really good, engaging and very relevant workshop that placed a high value on building resilience as a core element to a healthy workplace, positive team culture and balanced healthy life. I appreciated new strategies around building and maintaining resilience for self and colleagues and the pocket guide is a terrific handbook to refer back to.
