Let's be honest -- most organisations score poorly when it comes to team happiness, performance, and employee experience.

Let's be honest -- most organisations score poorly when it comes to team happiness, performance, and employee experience.

Most teams barely get above 50% of their potential. The cost is huge: In the UK around £70 billion in lost productivity annually.

Add the cost of staff turnover, poor customer experience, plus the human cost of fed up, undervalued or burned out employees -- it's a big problem.

There's work to be done in almost every organisation to make work more meaningful, rewarding and fun:

Connecting your team around a shared purpose and unifying goals. Developing a more engaged, driven and confident team, and a culture people love.

We help you get there.

If everyone goes to work knowing their contribution is valued, working towards a shared purpose, doing work that matters, with people who care -- performance skyrockets.

We've discovered how that is achievable for every organisation.

Upward Workshops

Get your team involved - with impactful workshops that help you get results fast.

Every one of our workshops is shaped around the outcomes and success that you're hoping to achieve: Whether that's to solve problems, make decisions, remove roadblocks, or find your best work. 

Alongside the workshops below, we have a whole bunch of tools and resources for developing and engaging leaders, teams and customers. 

We can deliver all of our workshops in -person or virtually. 

Why are workshops so effective?

Teams spend far too much time discussing, talking in circles, and getting nowhere – and far too little time actually doing what they’re supposed to be doing. This frustration and inertia can be overcome in any area with an effective workshop.

Over a half or full day, we’ll be the guide – whilst you and your team find your superpowers, and remove roadblocks, find answers and put systems in place to get ahead.

Workshops

Check out some of the high-impact, immersive and transformational workshops that we run for groups small and large. Build trust, find solutions, or create alignment.

We also develop bespoke team experiences and facilitate workshops based on your needs.

CULTURE SHAPING

As companies grow, it is all too easy to get entrenched in the daily grind —  and lose track of the big picture.

If this is happening at leadership level, it’s even more true for your team.

This workshop helps you clarify, celebrate and communicate your organisation’s vision, shape and outwork your values, and enrol your whole team in your mission.

A great workplace culture is a huge competitive advantage. Create a people-first, purpose-driven culture.

The results are a more passionate and visionary leadership team, a workforce engaged in a compelling purpose and shared goals, and a meaningful brand that customers love to buy from. 

THE FUTURE WORKPLACE

The workplace is changing rapidly. How can you stay agile, attractive and productive as the expectations and opportunities on employers evolve?

Hybrid working is already the expectation in many sectors. Find your workplace future and discover how your people and your business can grow — whilst keeping ahead of the curve.

Discover the key leadership and management changes needed to meet the demands of workers in the future.

If you want to become more focus, confidence and productivity within your organisation, as you discover your Future Workplace, this is the workshop for you.

THE INNOVATION SEMINAR

The Innovation Seminar helps you get ahead in your industry. Packed with fresh ideas to help you lead your team more purposefully, find creative breakthrough, and become radically more innovative.

If organisations don’t continue to innovate, there’s a risk that they will evaporate:  Because every team right now is needing to reimagine, pivot and innovate, we’ve put together a simple and interactive set of innovation resources – so that you can design a culture of innovation and transformation.

Equip your team, start innovating, and get ahead – whilst the rest of your industry is still trying to get back to normal.

VALUES THAT STICK

What are company values, and why aren’t they working?!

Most organisations have well-meaning words that are aspirational and (if we’re honest) a little fluffy, which they call Values; things like Excellence, Integrity, and Respect. 

How do values go beyond virtue signals, and become transformational within your organisation – shaping your culture, brand and performance?

Develop a values-strategy that helps your people thrive, celebrates great work, and connects your team around what matters at your organisation. 

Discover the four steps to creating values that stick — that shape behaviour. Map out your path to culture-shaping values. 

LEAD LIKE A COACH

A lot of traditional management systems are broken: Bureaucratic management, the carrot-and-stick approach, and archaic annual appraisals create frustration, cause inertia, and demotivate employees. 

The most innovative, rapidly-growing companies are completely reimagining what leadership and responsibility  look like. Discover a new way to lead your team at full potential: 

With more trust, transparency, and distributed decision making. When managers work more like coaches, studies show that performance increases. 

If you’re interested in transforming what leadership, power, and performance-management looks like for your team – the Coaching Practice workshop will equip you to lead like never before. 

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Change is inevitable. Over recent years we have all experienced change — but to be built to last in business, you must be built to change. 

The Change Management workshop helps you lead well through times of organisational change. 

The workshop covers how to plan, communicate, and implement change — in a way that brings your team with you, and leads to successful transformation, right now and for the long term. 

Come away with a roadmap to change that will give you the clarity and confidence to lead your team into the future. 

The Upward purpose workshop helped us find clarity and direction at a time of significant growth and change as we scaled our company, and defined for us what the ‘North Star’ of what we do is: it’s given us the message around our passion that we’ve become known for.
