High Performing Teams Programme

Delivered both virtually and in person, the High Performing Teams Programme gets your whole team rowing in the same direction with a shared purpose, unbreakable trust and highly effective communication.

Our Teamwork Philosophy

Ben and the crew didn’t always see eye to eye. In his book there’s an infamous moment where Ben had to be physically restrained from getting out of the boat – mid lake – and swimming around the boat to confront the Cox.

Becoming a world-class team involved hard work from all of the crew. They had to put their differences to one side, and instead concentrate on their mutual purpose. They developed and constantly refined a set of agreed ways of working, to shape interactions with each other and hold each other to account.


  • To lay the foundations for a high performing team, where all members are rowing in the same direction
  • To go back to basics and understand why each person is motivated to turn up each day, and how they fit within the team dynamic
  • To practically explore team dynamics so it becomes easier to work together effectively, even in the most time-pressed or challenging of scenarios
  • Embedded in the Programme is an individual ‘Team Challenge’ for all delegates taking part to work on and deliver during the Programme. This Team Challenge acts as a catalyst for progress and allows for the immediate application of the Programme


  • Accelerated team collaboration, so that the team become high performers, quicker
  • A clearly defined team purpose and goal, so that each person can prioritise and make decisions effectively
  • Each person understands their own and others’ motivations, so that they can work more effectively together
  • More effective team conversations within an honest but respectful environment
  • Live team coaching, giving an impartial outside view on performance accelerates conversations to attain better results
  • An achieved Team Challenge that quickly brings the focus needed for change and both individual and team success
