We Help People Become their Collaborative Best
Our leadership coaching and team training programs support people who want to be genuinely proud of their contributions to their work teams, their organizations, their families and their communities.
We help people contribute to collaborative environments, co-create outstanding teams, and authentically engage in all aspects of their lives.
We help people realize their full potential, enhance their quality of life, and intentionally bring out their best selves in more situations.
Can anyone be truly successful in isolation?
“Teams of people working together for a common purpose have been a centrepiece of human social organization ever since our ancient ancestors first banded together to hunt game, raise families, and defend their communities…” Kozlowski (2006)
Our leadership coaching and team training programs equip people with the emotional and social intelligence capabilities essential for personal, team and organizational success.
This program is your entry point for developing the social and emotional competencies essential for sustaining outstanding individual and team performance.
With the backing of peers, participants gain deeper insight into who they are at their best and plan their continued intentional development of essential self-management skills.
Participants explore how to broaden and build the capacity of others, engage with them, and inspire them towards a positive collaborative approach to work and life.
Through an open and supportive one-on-one dialogue, leadership coaching helps people to continue their intentional development towards being their best selves more often.
Traditional training doesn’t deliver the results you want
Fourteen core competencies lift “outstanding leaders, managers, advanced professionals and people in key jobs” above average performers. Twelve of these are emotional and social intelligence competencies – Boyatzis (2009)
Traditional training methods don’t deliver sustained improvements in these ‘soft skills’, skills that are essential for your future success.
Our coaching process and onsite team training programs are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional approaches to developing these key interpersonal skills and collaborative competencies.
