How do you develop innovative, productive and happy teams?

You might have a collection of high performing individuals but that doesn’t necessarily make for a high performing team. Here’s how our approach can help.

  • It’s about open communication. We work with teams to generate honest and non-judgemental conversations where every voice, even the most marginalised perspective, feels heard.
  • It’s about embracing differences. Conflict can be constructive. We work with teams to create safe environments where members can challenge one another, with respect – without damaging relationships or integrity.
  • It’s about collaboration. Who knows where your next innovation might lie? Let’s encourage constructive debate, fuel innovation, maximise resources and shift the focus to achieving together.
  • It’s about empowerment. The age of the hero “boss” is over. Let’s ease the burden for those calling the shots and inspire leadership in every team member.
  • It’s about connections. With better Relationships Systems IntelligenceTM, team members can focus not just on self and others, but also on the overall system – team, organisation, clients and stakeholders.
  • It’s about sustainable outcomes. We empower teams and organisations with skills and knowledge to address not just today’s challenges but to feel equipped to handle tomorrow’s together.



Thank you for bringing our agenda from strategy day back into sharp focus.  Speaking on behalf of the Executive Board, we found the techniques you employed on strategy highly effective. They have enabled the Executive Board to work in a more connected manner, be even more decisive in terms of prioritisation and confront issues that need to be addressed in a decisive manner.

Janet, President, Women in Banking & Finance - WIBF

Obi helped us to develop of a new strategic plan, individual and collective visions for the Royal African Society (RAS). Having an external facilitator of Obi’s calibre and experience certainly made a difference from doing it in-house and I have no doubt that we will use her services again.

Richard, Deputy Director, Royal African Society - RAS

Obi and her associate did more than strengthen our collaboration. We walked away with a clear sense of purpose, enhanced creativity, excellent ideas, a better understanding of our team dynamics and a collectively-designed agreement on how we would support one another whilst staying fully committed to our team goals.

Obi clearly has a solid understanding of the Investment Banking business
which lends itself to a level of awareness of the challenges and culture,
and ultimately results in solutions that are fit-for-purpose.

Gwen, Senior Vice President, Bank of America Merrill Lynch

She helped us scratch behind the surface of our work and really strengthen our relationships.
Obi’s work is not for the faint-hearted.
We all had to be brave together as a team.
