Our mission

Transforming organisations through teams


The latest research suggests only 13% of teams are high performing. Conventional interventions like facilitation don’t create lasting change. It’s time for a different approach.

Client Testimonials

Executive coaching

“Although I was open minded about the coaching, I didn’t expect to get much from it. It turned out I gained a lot. The coaching conversations opened up my management style and skills. I now prioritise my work and focus on what’s really critical and I have gained more capacity and am more effective. Coaching helped me get up the learning curve quicker. I have regained the buzz from my work and am looking forward to the challenges the next year will bring”.

Exploration director, Oil company.

Team assessments

“Amidst all the pressures of turning around a complex and underperforming business, it is easy for executive team development to slip down the agenda. teamSalient® was invaluable in helping me, and our team coach, identify our innate strengths and focus attention on some essential areas for action. It is work in progress, but work that the executive team owns and that is raising the pace and quality of leadership.”

CEO, Defence organisation.

Team diagnostics

“Using the outcomes from the teamSalient® tool provided us with the evidence and suggestions for new ways of working which will inform how we want the senior leadership team to look, feel and operate in the future. It underlined some of our existing thinking and enabled us to focus on some key areas that will require both behavioural change for both the team leaders and team members and re-alignment of roles, responsibilities and accountable areas.”

CEO, Government agency.
