Team traction action plan™ 

As we move through our unfolding experiences, new information arises.

Currently we find ourselves in corporate environments where:

•   There's no clear cut return to previous COVID-19 working arrangements. 

•   There's increasing pressure to deliver while goal posts for performance keep

shifting due to the uncertain nature of this period. 

•   Business impacts continue to reveal themselves and this can increase

challenges in supporting team morale and connection when staff may be

anticipating or experiencing restructures or re-alignment of roles. 

These unknowns can accumulate in our natural, human team fears which can result in:

•  Disengagement.

•  Unwillingness or inability to collaborate.

•  Choosing self-protection over team disclosure and vulnerability. 

•  Minimal interactions - usually isolated to distinct task focus.

This online team support program helps teams:

1.  Acknowledge their natural, human fears which disarms and shifts it from

blocking team performance to enabling team trust and collaboration. 

2. Opens up a safe space for the team to understand each other which gives the

capacity to focus productively on operational delivery and new innovative

thought and action required to address new challenges. 

3. Supports individual and team mindful presence and ability to own different

perspectives essential for developing new patterns of behaviours.

Explore the ElephantUnleash Untapped Team Potential Program

Combines the Team Potential Accelerator with one-on-one sessions to accelerate individual and team behavioural change. Enables real-time support to staff through any current workplace elephants in a self-reflective, compassionate action-learning environment. 

One-on-one sessions enable deeper, mindful personal reflection and exploration of the individual's: 

•  Stories, context and woundings (i.e. fears).

•  Emotional triggers and patterns.

•  Habits and patterns of behaviours.

•  Own meaning for stepping into courageous new action.

With this personal commitment and self-connection, greater insights and perspectives are often shared for the benefit of the group learning environment. 

The approach

I work with leaders and their teams to give voice to the unspoken. This increases individual wellbeing, meaning and purpose. As well as, establishes team behaviours required to drive UNLIMITED business capability, innovation and growth.

My unique programs create new potential for teams who get stuck in a perpetual dysfunctional cycle of awkward ‘unspokens’.

Using a proven strategy of:

1.  Setting a conscious mindful team Foundation

2. Co-creation of a plan

3. Collaboration in action learning and living the plan together. 

When the elephant ARRIVES™, you and your team will:

•  Be compassionately guided with unique tools and practices in

an action learning environment enabling conscious co-creation of new, positive ways of working together.

•  Walk away with a practical, agreed team actions for living these new behaviours together. 

•  Increase team trust and connection through new ways of relating within oneself and with each other. 

"Veronica’s gentle manner and unique insight provided me with an alternative view of how to manage the changing situation at work. 

I could have easily succumbed to feelings of anger, resentment and despair but instead by utilising the tools of meditation, mindfulness, vision board and affirmations, she created a space for me to be safely heard, to acknowledge the pain and find a way forwards.

I am so grateful that I was fortunate enough to have someone to guide me through a difficult time in such a positive manner.  Veronica is an inspiration and although an unconventional resource in a corporate environment, her insight and skills allowed me to emotionally let go of my fear and to move forwards and I am truly grateful for the skills I take away with me from this time with her."
