Your business is growing, but are your people?
Business is good. You're hitting targets, everyone seems to be getting along, and tricky business issues are few and far between. So, what's the problem?
- Do you really know how your team is tracking?
- Could they be doing better?
- Do you have the foundations for growth in your business and team?
These are all valid questions to be asking yourself, and the only real way to know how your team are tracking is a deep dive into how they’re thinking, what they’re experiencing in the workplace and the results they’re achieving. The last thing you want is to keep going around in circles and never hitting that next level.
Melissa was lovely to work with, a positive, energetic and respectful facilitator. I appreciated that she took the time to ask questions about my team ahead of time to understand the team dynamic and what support we were looking for from the coaching sessions.

Thank you again for last week. Mason and I both got SO much out of it. It was fabulous to have a moment working ON us and the business not IN the business. Mel always makes you feel relaxed and engaged, making it conversational, so you don’t feel you’re actually working (on yourself, your business, your team). You’re just talking. And the outcomes are always positive - haven’t had a session with her yet where I haven’t learnt something about myself as a person, as a business owner and as a leader.

Team building begins with benchmarks
When you hear 'team building', what do you think? You're probably thinking of games and bonding activities that aim to bring your team closer. Am I right?
These types of morale-building exercises have their time and place. They're a great way for the team to get to know each other and, often, to let their guard down. But as a business owner, are they really the best investment you can make to increase your productivity and improve your workplace culture?
When you choose Exceler8 to help build and strengthen your team, you're investing not only in your people but in your business.
We’ll rely on inclusive and comprehensive data to determine if you’ve got a platform for growth. Most importantly, your satisfaction level with your business and team is the key driver for change.
We kick off with a comprehensive diagnostic that considers whether your business has the foundations for growth.
Business owner and employee survey
Surveys are conducted to gather those all-important insights from both the employees and you as the business owner. These points of view are equally important but are rarely jointly considered.
Business benchmarking analysis
Armed with heaps of valuable data, it’s time to consider what’s going to give your business the biggest bang for buck in terms of strategy and solutions.
Don't worry, I won't waltz in and tell you what you have to do. Nope, we'll figure your next team-building steps out together.
These focus on the personalities and working styles within your business so your team can improve communication and productivity.
Additional coaching and mentoring
This is where I work with your people leaders to help them develop the skills and confidence to nurture and further strengthen your team.

Grow your people and your business grows too
Seriously, I'm not making that up. Your people are the backbone of your business success. An engaged team that's well-equipped and confident will help your business soar to the heights you've been dreaming of. But the challenge for you is knowing where the strengths and limitations lie for your team as individuals and as a whole.
My approach to team building and a positive workplace culture is based on data. This might seem like an unusual approach, and if you've worked with other HR consultants, you'll come to learn that it's fairly unique. I'm also not the kind of consultant to dish out directions. This is an inclusive process where everyone—management, leadership and employees—needs to contribute to achieving the best results.
Build Mini-Case Study
Industry: Metals and Mining
Size of business: 80,000 employees
A new remote working team was formed during COVID lockdown, but they were not aligned or truly integrated in the way they were working together.
The entire team undertook DiSC assessments and participated in a four-hour team building workshop to take a deep dive into the effectiveness of the working relationships. Follow-up coaching was also provided with key working pairs to give practical, everyday examples of how to use DiSC.
The team became better aligned and discovered a new perspective when it comes to understanding others and their behaviours. This change has led to a more satisfied and productive team, which is great for business!
