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
“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”

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.
I enjoyed working with SEVEN who provided the appropriate level of challenge and support and a “safe” space to do it
''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."
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.

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!!
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.
Johanna helped me greatly review my career direction and consider where I can make unique contributions. This process was very useful and important
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.
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 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”. Brian Tapley, ESB
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
