Our belief, is simple.
A better place of work creates a better human beings. Better fathers, mothers, sons and daughters. Better leaders in our communities, better economies and an (even) better world. We’re creating a better world, one team at a time.
It is a belief forged in the fire of corporate life, systemic constellations, leadership development, and working with families.
But in a world with countless (and some brilliant) consultants seeking to improve organisations with their own brand of patent magic, what does that mean practically? And how are we different?
90% of our work is completed in five days. Or put another way, you’ll see sustainable results within three days.
Your team results are benchmarked against the 90+ teams we have already worked with.
Everything is online.
We work with the entire system.
Our approach is based on fifty years of practical experience and insights.
There is no contact and no complicated payment terms.
Think of us as your team chiropractor. The phenomenon of a system is that it works as if it has a mind and body of its own. When you have a headache, the doctor gives your paracetamol. The chiropractor resets your lower back that is triggering the muscle tension at the top of the spine. The symptoms and the cause are not in the same place. Find and reset the cause of the pain and you don’t need to keep taking the paracetamol.
We’re creating a better world, one team at a time.
When do you use TeamConnect?
Easy. When you want to get the core of making the team brilliant. (By brilliant, we mean highly effective, delivering results, sustainable, happy etc.) It is designed for all teams in all organisations. Boardroom to Cloakroom. Large Corporate to small family run businesses. The dynamics and the patterns are pretty much the same.
Let’s make it more tangible. These are the typical questions we are approach about:
high turnover of staff
Disengaged team members
Everything feels like an uphill struggle
Vacancies that are never filled
Consistent communication clashes
Where do we go next?
The questions we ask explore six major themes:
TeamConnect consists of 6 online modules:
Part 1: Me in my work and in my team
Part 2: Patterns
Part 3: Team as a whole: team qualities
Part 4: Team Roles
Part 5: Energy meter: where am I and where do I want to be
Part 6: Direct questions
And these are not yes and no questions but something altogether more intrinsic and expressive. We work with colours, sliding lines, positions, fields of view and images. It’s about the lost art of ‘feeling’ and it produces incredibly accurate results.
We have more information at our FAQ. Or feel free to email Jan Jacob or Dees – we love to talk about this!

“My pattern is to dive into phenomena that I don’t really like. I want to understand. I want to feel how they work with my mind and my heart.I am especially curious about living systems need in order to do what they are meant to do.
If I find new insights about how teams function after a seminar or working with a team, it gives me energy and I have a fantastic day!”
