Mergers & acquisitions, new teams and growing teams

When companies merge, new teams are created or existing teams get growing pains – it’s unsettling for employees. There may be new ways of working, new people to integrate and a new culture to live by. People might even fear for their jobs. It all leads to a lot of uncertainty.

The magic brought people together, helping define personal and team values.

Enhance collaboration and communication

In times of change, people need to be able to voice their concerns and at the same time, move forward positively. We’ve supported clients such as Red Bull, Vodafone and O2 in such circumstances – working with them to allow new employees to get to know one another and collaborate effectively in the new teams.

The learning journey here is a suggestion of the themes we would address to help teams embrace the changes. The Belief sessions are all about confidence – we look at limiting beliefs people have about themselves and support them in overcoming those. We then work to strengthen connections within the team and instil a sense of belonging for everyone, unlocking the power of collective intelligence. Looking at the new company or team culture connects everyone to that and brings it to life in meaningful ways for employees. Addressing communication between people is a great way for them to improve and share appreciation for one another.
