One Team – Standing Together as ONE

“Thanks Jo – they were a great 1.5 days and I’m thrilled to see the growth and maturity of the team over the past 3 months. Your facilitation as always has been outstanding bringing out the best in us. I look forward to continuing our working relationship both with the team and personally.” SB – Auckland

At the heart of a business is its people and bringing everyone on the journey is part of the leaders mandate.

According to Gallup, the most effective leaders:

  • invest in and focus on strengths
  • surround themselves with the right people and then maximizes their teams ability to work together
  • understand their followers needs.

Strong teams

  • Thrive on healthy debate
  • Prioritize what best for the company and move forward
  • Bring the same level of intensity to their work and personal life
  • Embrace diversity
  • Are magnets for talent ‘everyone wants to be on the team.’

A true leader develops leaders and knows how to bring the best out of the team.  Developing a high performing team is one of the most exhilarating things you can do and definitely something that lives on long after you’ve moved on.

Jo can help you take your team to the next level by leading workshops that brings people together and connects them to a greater purpose.  Using her Gallup talents of Connectedness and Relator, she quickly builds relationships, understands team dynamics and intuitively knows to how to move things forward.  There is tremendous power in a team that is engaged, aligned to a common purpose and where diversity is embraced so that everyone has a voice that is heard and respected. Open communication fosters trust, transparency, builds optimism and shows that you care.

Like leadership, every team is unique.  Alignment is key so we work together honouring your culture, values and your goals.  Flexible in approach, it’s an honour and a priviledge to tailor-make an experience that builds team cohesiveness, trust and performance.
