At SEVEN we understand that bringing the best out of teams does not always come naturally. Being at your best as a team takes time, consideration, reflection and commitment. Team coaching can be particularly beneficial when teams are newly formed, are facing a particular challenge, have experienced change in the workplace or simply feel they can do better or more as a team.
Through team coaching, we enable teams to be at your best. We have a transparent and inclusive approach to coaching teams. The structure, style and content of our process is tailored to each team, but typically involves:
- Initial consultation meetings with the participating leader and their team to explore themes and inform the team coaching structure and style.
- Gathering individual contributions and insights to shape the coaching agenda.
- Team sessions to share insights, define team purpose and agree better ways of working.
- Agreement on individual and team commitments to ensure the team excels.
- Periodic follow up consultations with individuals and team to assess progress and continued commitment to purpose – typically at 30, 60 & 90 days intervals.
As experienced team coaches, we see great value in how teams develop through coaching to build trust, embrace accountability, handle challenges constructively and individually commit and contribute to positive change. This sets the foundation for teams to function at the highest level.
We would love to share our passion and knowledge on team coaching with you and your team. Find out more
Thank you SEVEN for helping me to identify my weaknesses but also my strengths. I also want to thank you for providing me with the tools to ensure I work at the right level.
My experience of working with SEVEN, both for individual and team coaching, has been a truly positive one. As a team of Business Psychologists, they really get ‘under the bonnet’ of the organisation and the team. There is no sense of a template response to issues or the introduction of boiler-plate solutions. They display real dedication to understanding the dynamics of the team and to collaboration on the solutions. I couldn’t recommend Johanna and her colleagues highly enough. Every session was a positive, learning experience.

I engaged with the SEVEN team over the course of a year for executive coaching. It was extremely beneficial to me as a Director and I am now more self-aware and confident in leading a large team and working with my colleague Directors. My coach was very insightful and this engagement has helped me grow and develop as a leader.
I found the SEVEN 360 feedback process extremely helpful and insightful. It identified a number of developmental blindspots for me, which I have now identified an action plan around and which I am now actively incorporating into my daily working life. Without the SEVEN assistance I would still be working merrily away oblivious to the level of frustration some of my communications were causing! Thank you SEVEN and I look forward to further coaching from you!!
I enjoyed working with SEVEN who provided the appropriate level of challenge and support and a "safe" space to do it.
Johanna helped me greatly review my career direction and consider where I can make unique contributions. This process was very useful and important.
I used the services of SEVEN for coaching and found them excellent, professional and goal oriented. The process helped me to see what I needed to do to really understand what I want and go for it. I would highly recommend them.
I really enjoyed working with Johanna who provided me with practical guidance and affirmation that I was on the right track. What I found most beneficial was Johanna's ability to understand my environment and therefore provide me with appropriate feedback and questioning to help me take action. The regular engagement also kept me focussed on implementing what we agreed and checking in on progress and amending as appropriate. There were many practical examples of adapting strategies to the rapidly changing environment but in all scenarios Johanna had practical guidance to reflect those nuances.
Coaching is essential for anyone who feels they don't have the strength to cross the obvious hurdles needed - it builds personal resolve and resilience and allowed me to gain perspective and determination.
Thank you to Johanna for her time and interest in me and my career. The sessions left me feeling like a load had been lifted. The sessions also gave me an opportunity to really reflect on my business and personal needs. I know I would not have been this honest with myself if I had not had the opportunity to be coached. I now feel I can find a path that works for all sides as I progress within my career.
I hugely valued my time with Johanna, the support she gave me and the discussion and challenges in our sessions. She supported me to recognise my strengths, via the 360 review. She never told me what to do or how to think, but supported me to recognise the key issues myself and then to consider the best way forward. I feel like a different person and a different leader in my organisation since the coaching. I think the key to my coaching was that Johanna created such an open, honest environment based on trust. I felt I could open up on any issues and challenge myself personally throughout.
Working with SEVEN has equipped me with the skills to approach challenging professional scenarios strategically, helping me to achieve my objectives.
SEVEN didn't give me the answers, they allowed me the time, space and support to get them myself. What I found great was it was my own answers, just challenged and revisited that allowed me unlock further personal development potential.
My engagement with SEVEN was both empowering and constructive, while assisting me to be the best version of my natural self in a business environment. It was a great coaching format with a really talented coach.
These are unprecedented times and where there were so many new challenges from a home and work perspective I appreciated the space it gave me to consider matters and help me find resilience.
My experience in working with SEVEN has helped me believe in what is already really good about me and to recognise what to work on to make it great.
SEVEN provides executive coaching of the highest standard drawing on very substantial experience and a deep skillset to deliver support that is transformational, personal and highly effective.
SEVEN have been great to work with to effect organisational change. They tailor their sessions to address the challenges individuals and teams are experiencing and facilitated us to to find practical solutions.
Working with SEVEN has definitely improved my performance, leadership and work relationships by helping me develop in a way that is consistent with my strengths and talents, while working on my weaknesses.
I found Michelle Murtagh to be an excellent coach. She was always very well prepared and tailored each session to the specific needs I had. I would go as far to say she has changed my outlook and opened my eyes to abilities I didn't think I had.

When I started out the coaching engagement with SEVEN, I was unsure what to expect and didn’t really know what I would get out of it or how to approach it. The SEVEN team are uber professionals who guided me through the whole thing. They are warm and welcoming and really know their craft. The insights, the feedback and the guidance I got through my SEVEN coaching was invaluable and has really helped me to grow as a leader. It has thought me to appreciate and recognize my strengths and also helped with me being able to know who I am as a leader and become more tuned into that. I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed each of the sessions I had with Johanna and look forward to a time in the not so distant future when it will be time to check in again to see how I am doing. I would highly recommend the team at SEVEN”

Working the SEVEN team was fantastic experience. The coaching sessions were tough, thought provoking discussions with plenty of self-reflection. These sessions were not theory based and allowed you to use real situational examples to work through. These always lead to a 'penny drop' moment or a specific action(s) for me to take. I embarked on this coaching shortly after commencing a more senior role in our company and the coaching helped me accelerate my transition into this role and become effective in my new role.
Working with Michelle helped me to identify and articulate challenges I was facing in my career. Her style of coaching and vast experience helped me not only identify these challenges but also craft a plan to meet them.
The coaching support provided by SEVEN has helped me enormously, as I navigate my way through a transistionary phase in my personal and professional life. It was really helped me to really trust in my life goals and see that personal and professional goals can happily co-exist.
I found the whole experience from start to finish to be immensely rewarding, providing a personal journey of self reflection, to dig deep into areas that I know I would not wanted to have explored but with this coaching it provided a framework and guidance to not only travel a path of self discovery but to take control of my own thoughts, to build resilience and to start developing and deploying personal strategies to create my own path to success. It was truly an amazing experience, I continue to utilise the learning from this program on a daily basis both from a work and personal perspective. Thank you
I engaged SEVEN to develop my leadership skills. Through working with Johanna I was able to better assess myself, my role, and my opportunities. Based on that experience, I have been able to recommend Johanna to colleagues and friends who have had the same positive reaction to SEVEN. I found the SEVEN team to be incredibly strong in their abilities. The professionalism, the attention to detail, and their considered quality methods made every minute worthwhile. The engagement exceeded my expectations. The insights gained from working with Johanna has allowed me to attain the changes in my career I hoped for when I first engaged SEVEN. The practical skills gained have helped me assess new situations and respond in a more considered way, especially in times of high growth and high stress. 3 words: INVIGORATING, INSPIRING, EFFECTIVE To learn more about myself from the outside in has been such a gift. I treasure my coaching with Johanna and what I’ve learned about myself and my work. I would not hesitate to recommend SEVEN.
