New meaning beyond words: Your team’s values-in-action.

Does your team/organisation have a set of agreed values? Were the values developed in consultation and socialised with those they are meant to serve? Was this activity completed some time ago?


Do you wonder about?

  • What ongoing meaning these values hold for individuals in the team / organisation TODAY?

  • Is there different ownership of the values for those who joined the team / organisation after the process of values establishment occurred?

  • How does your team keep these values alive and embedded in mindful individual and collective action every day?

  • Behaviours in the team when the espoused values and values-in-action are incongruent?


This workshop is designed specifically to:

  • Help bring conscious dialogue to explore how the team chooses to embody the values in their individual and collective choices and actions every day.

  • The unique, mindful and heartful approach enables shared exploration of:

  • Awareness and resonance with the values?

  • How individuals want to feel when living their values at work?

  • How the values support their individual and collective goals?

  • What actions can be taken to align with the values?

  • What if the values are not being lived?


The human experience of this process is shared through compassion, clarity and courage.

New potential beyond task: Heartful team re-set for 2021.

As you and your team step into 2021, is the flow-on impact of the extraordinary experiences of 2020 starting to emerge?


Many of us, have experienced both personal and professional challenges in ways we most likely never anticipated. Much of which is still likely to be unfolding as we continue to make sense of where we find ourselves and what our next steps might look like.


As your strategic and operational environment may continue to shift and adjust to a new macro and micro context, intention and emerging priorities, individuals and teams are also adjusting.


Uncertainty holds unknowns as it’s not predictable or familiar. Our known structures shift and our vulnerability can emerge as our sense of control is challenged. This can lead to unspokens.


Our fears can take over and we can feel very alone. We can contract our behaviours to ‘stay safe’ which ultimately, constrains our individual and collective collaboration, innovation and performance.


This workshop is designed specifically to:

  • Help bring shared acknowledgement of our human experiences of 2020 to let go of what is no longer needed and to set a new team intention for 2021.

  • The unique mindful and heartful approach enables shared exploration of: 

  • Acknowledging shared humanness though the experiences of 2020 which enables the release of the past and the new to emerge.

  • Deepening team understanding and connection through co-creating a foundation of trust and continuous growth.

  • The opportunity to embrace the learning from 2020 giving an opening for new team dialogue around what's important and collective meaning for success and wellbeing.

From Awkward Silences to Awesome Signposts:

New team ways of working.

Are you ready for team performance that is willing, reliable, sustainable and growing in positive ways in an uncertain environment and you believe:

  • Moving from concept to practice is a common human challenge. E.g. Think about when you decided it was time to start a new fitness regime or new diet…

  • Consistent, conscious action in alignment with the desired intention is a practice.

  • The practice of human behavioural change is not linear.


When it comes to us humans, our rational thinking is only part of the story. Our emotional selves, our fears and wounding can come into play in an instant – whether we’re in the workplace or otherwise.


It is in these moments a big gap between concept and practice can emerge. And, it is in these moments we have the greatest opportunity to adopt a mindful, heartful action learning approach. To observe, reflect, learn and grow together.


Your team’s behaviours can transform! Team agility and sustainable performance in an uncertain environment is possible while:

  • It needs new ways to co-create it.  

  • It takes conscious dialogue, conscious commitment and courage.


This 90 day support program is designed to help the team stay consciously committed to the shifting process of ‘living,’ the new ways of working. Following on from the team cuIture assessment, the team will be guided to practice new ways of working through a project and change management framework: 

  • Agree the program of work from identified themes (up to 4 priorities for the 90 day period).

  • Scope the priorities through conscious action planning, agree accountabilities and monitoring.

  • Formal individual and group support process to enable shared reflection and action learning for new ways of working. 

  • Service charters can be developed if there’s benefit in clarifying service levels/performance measures. This requires Executive commitment (for functional area/s involved).

If conscious choices for new ways are not made, the old paradigm continues… and often becomes more pronounced. The great news is, we have a choice! Individually and together we can co-create new ways for everyone's benefit. 

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."
