High performance teams

Attracting and retaining a high performing workforce is a significant challenge facing employers today. But the Great Resignation also provides organisations with the opportunity to consider how work can be a force for good – for people and our planet.

Liminal Play unlocks the potential of senior teams with unique experiential approaches informed by Gestalt, systemic and cutting edge human-centred leadership theory. 

“The times are urgent, let us slow down”

Rehumanising work through play

Team facilitation

I work with senior teams to facilitate conversations that align individuals and their organisation to their purpose and flourishing. 

This alignment leads to more satisfying relationships, greater engagement in meaningful work, and enhances adaptive and innovative responses for an ever-changing world. 

These moments of vivid awareness and relational experience serve as a common reference for shared sense-making and meaning long after the bricks are packed away.

Systems sense-making for difficult times

Leadership coaching and team facilitation

Future generations will see clearly what is difficult for many to acknowledge today – that our present moment in history is characterised by intense disruption and turmoil. Yet in the many facets of our current crises also lie seeds of possibility.

I support leaders and senior teams in system sensing, learning to ‘listen loudly’ to the time and place in which they stand. By using three-dimensional objects, maps and a felt-sense, we can engage powerful parts of our brains that are not easily accessed using only words.

With greater awareness of what is really going on, leaders and teams have a wider range of meaningful responses that help them move forward with greater ease, efficiency and alignment.

This approach using mapping and metaphor is designed to provide an accessible and effective structure for participants who have no previous experience with system sensing.  

“The LEGO Serious Play training session Jo ran with us was a terrific experience... we found it a valuable team-building exercise, allowing us to name and explore the elements of our work, life, and family that we value so much. I happily recommend the training and Jo’s approach as a trainer.”
