Remember when you first became a leader? The person you hoped to be, the mistakes you would not make. And the values you would embody every day. Then you turned up to work and things got busy and complicated. Your intentions and ideals haven't changed necessarily, but they might be a bit less clear.
We wanted to create a solution to that and here it is – Oceans Navigator, the next generation in leadership development. It's global, virtual and personal.
The programme is designed to give you:
Solutions to your latest challenges
Motivation and direction
Momentum and a plan
Progress and success
Meaning and satisfaction
Confidence and connection
A clearer sense of your identity as a leader
The Oceans Navigator programme is fluid and continuous,. You can join for a while, steer away and then come back, or you can find your professional home with us and follow the current indefinitely. Whether you need to re-find your direction, accelerate your progress, take time out to breathe and think or just connect with like-minded professionals, you'll find that Navigator delivers.

Teams are complex, fluid systems - amazing when they work, frustrating when they don't.
As a leader or team member, finding the keys to success can be tough.
We help leaders and their teams to move towards reaching their collective best with an analytical, pragmatic and above all human approach. We identify team strengths, surface the issues and give the team tools to fix things and get back on track. It works.
Teamwork needn't be hard work. We're here to make it easier. Just choose the approach you prefer.
Team Effectiveness Report
Our starting point for teams is our Team Effectiveness Report, which collects the anonymous views of each team member to produce an overall picture of what's working well and what isn't. From there, making progress towards becoming a more effective team is surprisingly straightforward.
We have created 3 team coaching packages to provide you with a clear and flexible choice.
Starting with the Team Effectiveness Report, we'll co-design with you an outline series of workshop topics that will get the team moving forwards. Then we'll design the workshops in detail and run them, adopting a team coaching approach that allows the team to take ownership for improving further. As the leader, you'll be free to sit back and contribute in the way that adds most value.
Our approach provides clarity and reassurance for the team and its leader. Any frustrations tend to subside and a new sense of energy and purpose is created. Team meetings can go from aimless to focused, from pointless to essential. Re-taking the survey 6 months later shows teams how far they've come and what to work on next.
Team + Leader Coaching
This package includes the full team coaching support described above but also includes 6 coaching sessions for you as the leader, looking at aspects of team leadership or whatever focus is most important for you at the time.
For a seismic shift, involve all the teams in a particular function or your whole organisation. Teams are then able to leverage each others' strengths, while a shared language of team performance enables a cultural change in what teams can expect of themselves and others.
Team 10 Challenge
Join nine teams from other organisations on a monthly video call to share issues, insights and ideas. Chart your path to success and make the journey together in this collaborative programme that has just a pinch of friendly competition.
Different times need a different approach.
Introducing Oceans Storm Force - rapid response, on-demand coaching.
Your teams are working differently and trying to assess the new reality and deal with priorities. Much is different and unfamiliar - situations, processes, expectations, limitations and even relationships. Leaders need to think fast and move quickly, without tripping up. They need the right support in small doses at the right time. Just enough to do their best thinking and make smart decisions.
Setting up Storm Force is simple. Agree with us a package of hours and decide who has access.
We’ll do the rest. Your users will have coaching available whenever they need it, for micro-sessions of 20 minutes up to a full hour for more breathing space.
You'll get visibility of usage and evaluation so you can be confident your investment is paying back quickly.
