Leading Teams

Working with intact leadership and senior teams within departments and organisations to enable their high performance.

Moving teams from active to effective

Team effectiveness, whilst seemingly simple in principle, is made more complicated by human nature and dynamics. Our first step is always to understand the problem that we are trying to solve, and from this we design a bespoke programme based on our Fusion design principles, industry research (e.g. scrum methodology for agile working) and our wisdom and experience as consultants. This gives us the clear outcomes needed to move any team from active to effective. Some of the blockers that we commonly see involve mindset, accountability, leadership climate, motivation, and communication.

Our approaches range from the scientific and data driven (using team psychometric data and tools) through to creating profound team experiences that fundamentally shift a group dynamic and how people ‘are’ with each other. We are proud to be acknowledged as a ‘high performing’ team in our own right at DPA, and have won several industry awards and accolades in this respect. Our work with client teams is both original and authentic as it’s a journey we’re continually on ourselves.

“The work that DPA did for Gumtree was extremely valuable. Over the course of a half year DPA helped us forging and forming a new kind of leadership team for the company.”

Morten Heuing, General Manager, Gumtree

“You balanced pragmatism brilliantly with attention to detail and high quality work.”
