Unleashing Human Potential

Team One unites knowledge and experience gained from success in both the sporting and business worlds.

What We Do

Organisational Culture Transformation

Organizations have now been restructured so many times, they are suffering “restructure fatigue ”.

This results in cynicism, weariness and active or passive resistance to change. Leaders need to ensure that they spend as much focus on winning the hearts and minds of the current team as they do on the new structure. Clients consistently report that properly implemented, this programme results in team member buy-in to the change process, improved morale and increased performance.

High Performance

This training develops coaching skills in people whose roles involve leadership of teams.

What do top coaches do to bring out the best performance in their athletes? Gleaning insights from the high performance world of sport where TeamOne has been so influential, leaders are assisted to understand what motivates, inspires and brings out the best performance in their teams. Conversely, leaders can analyse their own performance for attitudes, words or behaviour that may unwittingly be demotivating their team, and then do something about it.

Your customised programme builds and practices practical skills that can assist leaders to coach the best performance in their teams.

Safety Culture

The safety culture of an organisation is the product of individual and group values, attitudes, perceptions, competencies, and patterns of behaviour that determine the commitment to, and the style and proficiency of, an organisation’s health and safety management.

Team One excels at bringing all these competencies into alignment through customised solutions.

Lives Changed

The Team

The Pace Setters

I’m the CEO of Team One International. We are a group of people born with a lifelong mission to help every individual we meet be the very best they can be. We call it Unleashing Human Potential. We work where individuals have the best chance to shine; in business and on the sports field. Here we help to create a culture which encourages high performance and allows everyone to fulfil their potential. I suffer from a strong case of Pollyanna syndrome, always wanting to see the best in the world. I will fiercely defend the underdog and live by the mantra ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’. I am constantly pushing myself to see how far I can go……and the good news is I haven’t found the boundaries of my abilities yet! The best is yet to come!!!
As a professional rugby league player I was very lucky to have experienced some of the best sports psychologists and motivators that money could buy. Once I retired and returned home I was asked to attend a Team One training programme which was being delivered to one of their clients by a very good friend of mine Eric Rush, an ex All Black. During that programme I was introduced to the concepts of the Powertrain. When I saw these concepts a little light went on in my brain and I thought to myself what an awesome set of tools! Everyone needs to see these tools as they could be applied to all areas of life – Sport, Business and create a Work life Balance.
