Discover the power of collaborative working in a whole new way with our virtual programme TeamWorks.
Successful teams recognise the value of meaningful collaboration. They dedicate time and energy to building strong bonds, creating a safe and supportive environment and clarifying their shared goals. This investment pays off in improved problem-solving, decision-making, change management, and conflict resolution skills. It also contributes to the overall wellbeing and performance of all team members.
Over three to six months, TeamWorks combines live group coaching with online learning materials. The programme is centred around kindness, compassion and the wellbeing of team members, providing an opportunity to grow together and improve team dynamics.

What have people said about TeamWorks?
'It brought our leadership team together and made us step aside from busy workloads and look inwardly at the impact of our leadership. We came a long way in a short time thanks to the structure of the course and importantly thanks to the facilitating / coaching.'
'The most helpful aspect of the course was how it helped me examine my own personality traits and those of my colleagues in the context of how we work together as a team.'
'I enjoyed the course and felt I got a lot out of it both personally and as a team. We did it while being stretched for time and it was really good to have the time and space to stop, reflect and reset, and actually seemed to create more time to do work, maybe because I was changing how I did things.'
