Consulting & Coaching to Boost Management Team Cohesion & Effectiveness

Team Boost is Focused on 3 Types of Objectives

A company cannot succeed without an aligned and effective management team. Team Boost is a comprehensive support program, which can include assessment, advisory services, and group coaching, dedicated to executive teams, executive committees, and management boards. It focuses on achieving 3 types of objectives :

1. Build or Reorganize Your Management Team

Whether in response to new challenges or following departures within the team, building or reshaping your management team is a delicate process, but crucial to ensuring operational excellence. Our support can include assessing needs and skills, advising on the optimum structure, and facilitating the integration of new members, to ensure a cohesive management team ready to meet any challenge.

2. Improve Relationships & Strengthen Cohesion

At the heart of any successful team are strong relationships. Our coaching can focus on improving interactions, developing authentic and healthy relationships, managing conflict and disagreement, alignment and cooperation, to foster transparent communication and a stronger team spirit.

  • Understanding the context and expectations
  • Framework with the sponsor and definition of the support system


The aim of the assessment phase is to identify the team’s strengths, weaknesses, difficulties and avenues for development. It can be composed of :

  • Online questionnaires on team functioning
  • Personality tests
  • Questionnaires to assess leadership skills
  • Individual interviews

Consulting & Coaching

The support phase consists of strengthening the cohesion and efficiency of the management team. It can take several forms:

  • Support for the manager, team leader, in reorganizing his team or his posture and role within the team
  • Collective team coaching sessions focused on achieving development objectives

5 Contexts of Intervention

Implementing the Team Boost program can be crucial in various contexts. Here are five key scenarios where Team Boost proves to be a valuable ally in improving cohesion, effectiveness, and performance of the management team.

Creation of the Management Team

When forming a new management team, the chemistry between the members and their alignment with the company’s vision are crucial. Team Boost helps create a positive dynamic right from the start, building trust, communication and collaboration. It helps to identify individual and collective strengths, facilitating the rapid and effective integration of members into a coherent, high-performance unit.

Revamping the Management Team

In the context of a reorganization, the management team may be faced with structural changes in roles and responsibilities. Team Boost supports the team through this transition process, ensuring that every member is aligned, adapted and ready to contribute effectively to the new organizational landscape, while minimizing interruptions and tensions.

Team Conflicts and Dysfunctions

When dysfunction and conflict arise, they can hamper productivity and team harmony. Team Boost acts as a catalyst to identify and solve underlying problems. By promoting openness, communication and conflict resolution, it restores cohesion, enabling the team to realign itself and regain its operational effectiveness.

Business Transformation or Development

In intensive phases of growth and transformation, the company needs to remain agile and responsive. Team Boost strengthens the management team’s ability to steer change, ensuring fluid communication, rapid decision-making and effective implementation of strategies, adapting the company to new market opportunities and challenges.

Team Improvement

For teams looking to improve their collective performance, Team Boost offers tools and strategies to identify and exploit opportunities for improvement. The program supports the development of skills, the deepening of relationships and the fine-tuning of processes, leading to optimized performance and the achievement of corporate objectives.
