Research shows that teams with an ill-defined structure, unclear purpose or lack of ‘norms’ lead to poor morale, relationship issues and low team performance. Yet, get the basics right and you will empower everyone to contribute fully to the team’s success.

We start by introducing delegates to a simple yet powerful team assessment framework so they can avoid the traps that so many teams fall into. They also draw on their own experiences of best vs worst teams.

Five dysfunctions of a team: we introduce delegates to Lencioni’s “trust pyramid” so they understand the five elements that must be in place for a successful team.

Connect and engage: we show how to really listen and actively seek out different opinions, build

relationships and work towards shared objectives

Discover your team’s core purpose and set WISE™ team goals: Use this powerful process to empower your team, ensuring they set relevant goals, and understand the value of their contribution.

Transform your team leadership style: know how and when to adapt your leadership and influencing style to empower each individual to make the most of their talents and enhance the overall success of the team.

Speaker Bio

You’re good with your hands…but your brother is the intelligent one

This is what I was told as a child. Having failed my 11+ exam, and being consigned to being ‘average’, I am living proof that anyone can be who they want to be and achieve a destiny beyond their dreams… and the low expectations of others.

Drawing on ground-breaking neuroscience research and brain-based coaching methods, I transform the behaviours of teams and individuals to deliver growth, engagement and profitability within world-class companies.

With a Masters in Business Analysis & Systems Design and as a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management, I combine business acumen with an intimate knowledge of corporate culture. I am an accredited brain and behaviour specialist, with over 25 years experience, offering a series of world-renowned programmes to multi-national organisations, including HSBC, Louis Vuitton, Emirates, Siemens and Unilever.

Based on personal experience and sharing real-world examples, I have a passion for explaining – and overcoming – the limiting beliefs, fixed mindsets and biases that thwart the potential of so many.
