“you add most value:

  • With senior people who have a known development need/opportunity but who have struggled to make a meaningful change in their behaviour to address it

  • In providing feedback on difficult people issues (both individuals and teams) where there is a disconnect either in the team or between a leader and their team

  • In energizing teams that are working on a difficult assignment (eg the innovation group) and helping coach them through.”

“Seven’s work focuses on behavioural change and seeks to get to the root cause of certain behaviours through various methods depending on the depth of the root cause – these methods could work on the conscious and/or subconscious mind…

Key benefits for me personally and the business are:

    • Taking time to reflect on the situation from 4 perspectives: my own, others (customers and colleagues), the business and future needs – this has enabled me to build sustainable cross-functional relationships to optimise productivity

    • To develop my EQ, particularly in behavioural insights with colleagues and customers, which has enabled me to advance my intuitive skills in areas such as team building through change, coaching and mentoring, and interview technique

    • Strategic thinking – tactics to taking a more holistic approach and recognise contribution to wider business challenges/opportunities

    • Recognise key strengths and optimise these and not get bogged down with negativity …(which was beginning to consume my effectiveness)

    • Delegation – to do this effectively through my managers which has enabled them to grow and develop and frees up time for me to think about the wider business.”

“Benefits to me – Working with Seven has:
Increased my confidence and understanding of the worth of my abilities
Increased my ability to look at situations from other people’s perspectives and “make sense” of behaviours around me – and harness these to get better results
Allowed me to access feedback from others that may not have been forthcoming otherwise and understand it in a way that I can make actionable improvements/adjustments to my style

This has benefited the business by:
Increasing my productivity and my ability to intervene and steer decisions to get results where I can see we are off-course, particularly with colleagues senior to me
Increasing my ability to handle difficult situations and keep my head
Improving my judgement when it comes to hiring and motivating others – which means we have a stronger team in place in [] than we did when I joined the business.”

“…most useful aspects for me were:

  • Facilitating discussion with peer group around experiences and best practices on leadership
  • Facilitating and helping interpret 360 degree feedback
  • One to one sessions, particularly around career planning and link to my purpose. The more time we spent on this and started to dig deeper into motivations and drivers, the more beneficial it was.

As a team I think this helped us take time out from operational detail and focus on some of the bigger picture questions, and also helped us come together as a group. The 1-1 sessions were very helpful in helping me think about a career path in LN and also improving self-awareness and personal effectiveness.”

Director, Times top 100 company



“Where it has been useful to me:-

It has been useful to me in the context of reviewing my performance, ie 360 appraisal coordinated, feedback synthesized and given to me in a positive and constructive way and in the context of a longer coaching relationship.   I’ve always disliked the idea of ‘self-service’ or computer generated 360s-reviews so I found it very valuable to work through the feedback I got with someone I knew /knew me pretty well and could add even more perspective to it.

On individual issues/problems discussing and trying to change, I think the work we did  together … around considering different ‘lenses’ / views of one’s actions was a powerful technique and something I keep in mind when I am coaching my team.

Anecdotally people who report to me or are my peers have said they  have benefited from sessions with you where they tackle a particular issue/behavior that has been bothering them. “
