Personal Impact

Personal Impact

We have created a world class personal impact programme that is leading edge through its tools, techniques and methodologies in enabling you to have the maximum positive impact on yourself and other people who you interact with directly and indirectly.

More and more leading organisations are switching onto the fact that the way we interact with each other, the decisions we make, our ability to communicate, our ability to manage our emotions and actions has an immediate and long lasting impact on the results achieved by individuals, teams and business. Whether it is the way a leader comes across to a team, a sales person to the customer, a buyer to the supplier it is all contributing towards success or failure of the organisation.

Do you ask yourself these questions? What impact do I have on others? How do I affect the outcomes? How do I come across? What are my strengths? What do I need to improve? How well can I communicate? What is the impact of my feedback on others? Do I get the results I require? Etc…

By exploring and creating clarity for some of these questions, participants learn tools and techniques they can implement immediately to help them achieve better results for themselves and others.

All of the tools on the programme are applicable in many different internal and external business situations as well as enabling delegates to feel more fulfilled at work and home.

Team Impact

Team Impact

Team = A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job or a project. Team members operate with a high degree of interdependence, share authority and responsibility for self-management, are accountable for the collective performance and work toward a common goal and shared rewards. A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members (business dictionary)

Our unique team impact sessions are characterized by:

  • Results focused – it needs to be real and reflect the challenges you face
  • Energizing and inspiring – it’s a no brainer that people achieve better results when they are fired up compared to those people who lack drive a motivation
  • Tool and technique based – you must be able to replicate the lessons when it counts on your return to work
  • Can be indoors or use the outdoors to achieve the desired results
  • Can be from 1 – 5 days in duration and spread over months or strategic team development
  • Can be integrated within existing strategies for people, team and organizational development
  • Fun

High performing teams

Every team has a glass ceiling, a natural point where the team is performing at a high level and achieving great results. This can be a frustrating place to be for a team, they know they can do even better but do not appear to have the extra piece of capability to move to the next level. That’s where we can work wonders; all of our facilitators have worked in teams that have broken through the ceiling from climbing Everest, cycling the Tour De France, achieving outstanding business growth and results. We bring this expertise and most importantly experience to our facilitation, alongside some funky tools and techniques designed to move your team to the next level and smash through the ceiling.

Under performing teams

Unfortunately very few teams live up to their billing and capability. Often people are thrust together without a great deal of consideration for purpose, dynamics, structure, capability, capacity, etc. the chances of reaching high performance levels are non-existent. W work with these teams to build some of the fundamental components required to establish the team and install a sense of spirit that is greater than the sum of the parts. We can turn teams with low confidence and trust around to get on the right track towards high performance.

Team bonding and fun

High performing teams can be like pressure cookers! Every team, whether it’s shattering the glass ceiling or stuttering to get going can benefit from some good old fashioned bonding and fun. This doubles up as a great opportunity to get to know each other better, learn about the team in a different environment, understand what is possible when the pressure is substituted for enjoyment and passion. Our team development sessions such as the Purbeck challenge are perfect for bringing teams together and giving them an experience they’ll dine out on for years to come – and serve as a reference for what the team is capable of.

In essence our team impact programmes are designed to enable teams to achieve the short and long-term goals they were formed to accomplish.

The structure and process for each team impact session will be unique to the team we are working, aligned to the goals, aspirations and current capability of the team and individuals.

That said there are some common areas which team development may focus.

  • Understanding high performance and benchmarking
  • Exploring team dynamics
  • Aligning to the vision, direction and greater goals
  • Group problem solving and decision making.
  • Creativity and innovation.
  • Adaptability and flexibility.
  • Pro-activity and initiative.
  • Conflict resolution.
  • Team member feedback and development.
  • Coaching and support.
  • Information sharing and communication.
  • The structural and cultural characteristics of teams.
  • Forming and developing an effective team.
  • The role of individual differences in the team.
  • Team leadership skills.
  • Bargaining and negotiation

The benefits

  • You will experience an immediate impact on business results
  • Confident focused team members
  • Aligned and happy teams
  • Clear goals and direction
  • Increased revenue and greater profit margin

Who is Team Impact Programme aimed at?

All teams and groups of people who want to better themselves – whether you are currently high performing, under performing or just need a release from the pressure.


Thank you for your presentation last week. The content went down well and you succeeded in getting the team(s) to think about their own situations and to start questioning what it is that they find inspiring within the workplace and life generally. The feedback was positive.
