The Academy of High Performance Teams was founded in 2014.
We are proud to have partnered with senior global leadership teams from organisations including Unilever, Nike, Tesco, Vodafone, M&S, Electronic Arts, Activision, Centrica, Airbus, and many other well respected organisations.
Why work with us?
We situate our work in your business challenges.
We’d much rather help you develop the collective leadership in the team to solve some of your most challenging business issues, than help you remember each other’s MBTI profiles.
We specialise, wholly and exclusively, in team development.
This focus and clarity allows us to bring you world-class, deep expertise in an area that others just dabble in. We make it our business to know everything worth knowing in this space.
We stand tall in the space between science and practice – we are interested in what works.
As well as our unique Doctoral level research in executive teams, we know how to land insights from inside and outside the business world in a way that is action-orientated and pragmatic.
We are purpose driven.
Our purpose as an organisation is to help leaders make those difficult decisions that don’t come with any guarantees except freedom. We intend to helpfully disturb the system through the right balance of support and challenge.
If only you knew what you know.
In our experience, most teams have pockets of brilliance which can be modelled and replicated. We like to work with you rather than on you – helping you find the bright spots and making change easier, faster, and stickier.
How we work
How we think
How can we create a team that is much greater than the sum of its parts?
How can we develop team meetings that the members actually look forward to – which renew the team and leave them more focussed, connected, inspired, and resilient than before?
How can each team member be enabled by the team to achieve much more than they could by working in parallel with others?
How do teams generate new thinking together, rather than just exchange the thoughts the team members already know?
How can we shape the team environment to drive accountability so that commitments are always acted upon?
