Improving Team Collaboration

Craft an Exceptional Team by Design

Great teams are not an accident! Effective teams don't just materialize because people are working together in groups or on shared projects. The best teams are purposefully crafted, cultivated, and structured for continuous productivity.

Clear pathways of communication and more productive interpersonal exchanges of information result in more constructive and profitable work. And, let's face it - more meaningful work! It isn't easy to build a great team or make an existing one better, but don't worry, we'll help you get there.

Career experience alone is not enough to be a valued coach. It is critical that a coach truly understand the science of how and why people and organizations learn and change. This requires a rigorous coaching education as a foundation.

Client Testimonials

Straight from the Source

“Wes  is warm, curious, open and non-judgmental, and has a way of making other people feel inherently valuable and important. I can't imagine a better foundation for coaching! Over the years that Wes and I worked together, he was one of my most trusted confidants. He always helped me see situations from a totally different perspective, challenging all of my inner narratives and helping me detach from perceptions and see something closer to truth. When he had constructive feedback to give me, it never felt like criticism or negativity; rather it felt like a gift, something meant to enlighten me and help me become a better version of myself. Wes's amazing insight into people combined with his ability to listen generously and truly be in the moment with them creates a space for discovery and opens the door to real personal and professional growth. He has a special talent for helping others see what they can't see on their own; I learn something new in every conversation with Wes, and I always feel uplifted after spending time with him.”

Amy Bobchek, Senior VP, Growth at EVERFI

“If you are looking for an intuitive, smart, empathetic and kind coach, call Wes. He is a great sounding board, who taught me how to pause before reacting and how to acknowledge my emotions, not to ignore them and more importantly not to let them define me.
He reinforced the importance of self-compassion and provided tools and resources for me to study and reflect upon. I am more calm and patient with myself than ever before.”

 -Amy Wood, Manager-Account Development, OpenText

“Wes is an easy person to talk to! He creates a safe and comfortable environment right from the start (which can be hard to do when you haven’t met someone and you’re connecting via video)
Wes is a great listener and is able to help you double-click on certain ideas to deepen your reflection and understanding. For example, I’ll say something that I don’t think has much meaning and he’ll repeat it and say something like “let’s dig into that a little more” and by the end we’ve uncovered something really interesting.
I appreciated when Wes mentioned models/tools/frameworks to help guide thinking
Wes pulled in some interesting analogies and metaphors during our conversations! Sometimes I didn’t know where they were going to take us, but they created a shared language for us to continue to dive deeper.
I appreciated that Wes continued to emphasize that the sessions were for me, so we didn’t have to follow a certain script or guideline.
Overall, I found coaching sessions with Wes to be beneficial and impactful. Wes is a calming presence with lots of wisdom. He was a thoughtful listener and was able to connect noteworthy themes throughout our sessions. Thank you, Wes!”
