Home / Building OUT

A service to build Openness, Understanding and Trust for purpose-driven teams

We care about building open, trusting and understanding within teams, because we think these are the foundations for how people can accomplish great things together and feel happy and fulfilled at the same time.

We want to share our experience in building these principles in our own teams with other organisations. With that aim, we offer workshops and bespoke support to teams who want to develop their working practices and communications.

What we offer

Workshops

We run hands-on workshops on a variety of approaches, focused on teams and how they can work together better. Above all, this involves changing how we talk to each other and make decisions together.

Team Support

We offer an adaptable approach (not a one-size-fits-all solution) that is led by us listening and understanding your needs, and taking one step at a time, at the pace and budget that works for you. This might include workshops, coaching or pair conversations, introducing approaches you can use and practise with and without us.

Who we are

We are not experts who will give you all the answers (sorry!). Instead we are:

  • Practitioners. We all work in our own teams and have a raft of lived experience tackling the same problems as you.
  • Collaborative. We work with you not for you, we want to leave the space for things to emerge, keeping an open mind so we can explore and learn together.
  • Human. We’ll share with you techniques and processes which can be really useful, but we’re not process-led, we’re people-led. We get curious together about what’s going on in your team, and start from there.

Don’t take our word for it, though…

How we can help

We can help you if:

  • you want your team to work better together – even if it is working well
  • your team is struggling with conflict
  • making decisions is messy and unclear
  • what’s said or agreed in the meetings is different to what passes through the whisper network or actually happens
  • you want to spread the power and autonomy throughout the organisation
  • it doesn’t feel like team members can be honestly themselves
  • people report feeling unsatisfied
  • you’ve got a sense that it could all just be a little bit more wonderful than it is
