Group Work & Mediation

WHERE INDIVIDUAL COACHING AFFECTS INDIVIDUAL CHANGE, GROUP WORK CHANGES CULTURE AND MAKES GROUPS TEAMS.

Group work and mediation offers helpful data on our relationships, our leadership, and the part we play in our organisations and communities. It also informs us as to the culture of your business and the roles that each person plays within this. This a powerful tool when looking at the identification of business and leadership behaviours. It also provides us with the opportunity to get people to recognise their own place within the group and its dynamic, allowing for change if required.

This gives us a view about how the team operates and allows them to bring their thoughts and feelings about the business, their peers, and the leadership forward. It is unique as this process can allow for newer levels of honesty to be fostered and generate greater team spirit.

Although we are not aware of the impact of below the surface phenomena, they have a pervasive and active influence on everything we do. In groups this is especially so. Most investigations of group activity concentrate on how the individual behaves in a group – an isolated examination of the behaviour of the individual. However, there is another force at play when groups come together, a group dynamic of which every member is part.

Managed well, this can work as an important ‘valve’, allowing thoughts and feelings that have been held, to be released and let go. This can have a significant impact on team and individual performance, and act to draw out and resolve any toxicity.
