Astute Teams

Teams are struggling as they navigate challenges like returning to work, mass resignations, hybrid working, rapid rescaling and the mandate to recover. Our team cohesion workshops are focused on deep team development. They vary from one-off  sessions to long-term partnering aimed at significantly increasing team effectiveness. We'll tailor a solution to your specific context, time frames and budget. 

Maximising the impact of people leading in the current crucible of complexity, change and conflict, by...

Reenergising disconnected, disjointed and dysfunctional teams.

In partnership with Heather and Margaret Barrie and Three Cornered Hat, UK.....
