Without you we would still be stuck!

Sharon, without you we would still be stuck! Thank you for getting us to open-up in a constructive way, face our challenges and find practical solutions that we are all committed to. I was surprised that we really managed to break down the silos between claims, underwriting, operations and the sales branch managers. It was so empowering to leave with an implementation plan in-hand and practical tools to support us going forward. I loved this programme and am so looking forward to living it!

Goal Setting and Planning

Goal Setting and Planning

Our teambuilding activities are a perfect platform for setting goals, developing action plans and enabling future projects. We encourage teams to think critically about objectives, identify potential obstacles and develop strategies to overcome them. By engaging in goal setting and planning, team members develop skills in setting achievable targets, creating realistic timelines and coordinating their efforts effectively.

Conflict Management

Conflict Management

We are often asked to work with teams that are experiencing high levels of conflict. Our sessions are highly effective in promoting collaboration and resolving conflicts. We are able to create a safe and supportive environment where team members feel comfortable expressing opinions and concerns. The sessions encourage and facilitate open dialogue, active listening and a focus on finding mutually beneficial solutions.

Reflection and Feedback

Reflection and Feedback

Our activities often incorporate elements of reflection and feedback. After completing an activity, team members have the opportunity to reflect on their performance, discuss lessons learned, and provide constructive feedback to one another. This reflective process promotes self-awareness, encourages personal growth and helps team members identify areas for individual and team improvement.
