“teamwork makes the dream work”
Hard to imagine that truer words have been spoken. As Albert Einstein once commented, ‘everything in life is a system; small, large and everything in between’. It is indeed how well the cogs (team members) in the system turn and work together that leads to poor, average or high performance and productivity levels.
For around 3 decades we have been providing performance enhancing programs to…
Executive/C Suite Teams
According to the London Business School, up to 2/3 of Leaders derail themselves on their way from transitioning from being Competent Performers (task proficient) to being Effective Leaders (creating a setting for others to be their very best)
Veretis is experienced in providing bespoke solutions to C Suite individuals across a diverse industry base to assist in the development of elite leadership skills and practices. Our proven approach uses evidence-based leadership tools such as the Leadership Impact tool (LI) to gauge individuals strengths and work areas. Once participants have a good depth of Awareness and Acceptance we move to enhancing and consolidating strengths and to build upon the work areas.
Our profiling and enhancement suite for individual or teams of C Suiters includes:
- Leadership Styles and behaviours
- Emotional Intelligence competencies
- Personality and preference characteristics
- Mental health and well-being
Elite Sporting Teams
Across the Elite Sporting teams Veretis works with, we have a mantra of “feedback is the breakfast of Champions”. We incorporate this into our Performance Zone – Learning Zone Looping process for continuous improvement. Veretis uses evidence- based profiling and metrics to help with Awareness and Acceptance and then proven interventions at the individual and team level to build cohesive elite sporting teams that deliver results.
Elite Sporting teams, Veretis has worked with include the Sydney Swans AFL Club (22 years with them – Grant Brecht given Life membership for his services), Sydney Roosters NRL club, Racing NSW (thoroughbred), Cricket NSW and Cricket Australia, Harness Racing NSW and Melbourne Football AFL Club.
Managers at all levels often need to be technically competent, people management proficient and implementing their major role which is ‘creating a setting for others to be their very best’.
Our evidence-based profiling methods and enhancement programs (individual and team) assist established and ‘budding’ managers to grow and develop utilising our proven ‘keep it simple’ triple A method of continuous improvement; ‘Awareness, Acceptance and Actioning’.
At Veretis we believe in, “Prior Preparation Prevents Poor Performance’ and that is exactly what we help our clients do ‘prevent poor performance’. Project teams are often made up of very competent individual performers from local, national or global teams.
However, elite team performance comes from an elite systems performance not a sporadic team of elite individuals. How the cogs in a system work and turn together is crucial in delivering sustainably high performance where the team goal is more important than the goals of each individual.
Programs include profiling and continuous improvement interventions for enhancing Awareness, Acceptance and Actioning for:
Veretis can deliver a range of individual and team enhancement and continuous improvement programs for schools including teachers and students. We are only a phone call away for you to discuss your needs and to see if we have a solution that can help you navigate that need.
Programs include, but are not restricted to:
Tripe A Model of Transformation
Our Veretis TRIPLE A model of team transformation, growth and development sets the context for elite high levels of performance including our sophisticated and evidence-based team profiling processes which set a firm foundation for; Awareness – Acceptance – Action and allows for benchmarking and progress analysis through a Profile – Action – Reprofile (PAR) process.
We build evidence-based, proven programs to suit and enhance the individuals, team and whole of organisation vision for growth, sustainability and continuous transformation.
Our real point of difference is that we have a process that uses the same model for Leadership, Individual, Team and whole of organisation transformation and development within our TRIPLE A model.
This means that participants in our programs only need to learn and execute one framework for understanding how individuals and teams grow and flourish.

Veretis SPIN approach
We guide you through the SPIN process to assess your ‘true north’ in terms of how you would like your teams to be operating across getting tasks done and interacting with each other to get those tasks done to produce high performing outcomes and productivity.
You Tell Us:
Situation – your unique circumstances
Problem – the challenges and/or stalled opportunities presenting in your team/s
Implications – what are the implications of the challenges you are facing
Needs – where would you like to get to, what would you like your teams to be doing
Attributes of High Performing Teams
Clear Direction – A True North
Sometimes, organisations are in such a hurry to action their projects that they establish groups of people without first deciding on the goals and desired outcomes. It is important that teams understand the ‘context’ of why they need to get towards where they are heading before the delivery of any ‘content’ on the how.
Open and Honest Communication
Across and within any team, communication is crucial to building a sense of collaboration and bond between members. The manner of communication, how freely and frequently team members communicate determines the effectiveness of the team.
Support Risk Taking and Change
Good teams support appropriate risk taking and experimentation for change. They look on first time mistakes as opportunities for learning.
Defined Roles and Tasks
Evidence from team and organisational culture research shows that understanding the roles needed in a team is crucial and often not thought through well enough. Roles and tasks can be fluid and malleable within set parameters to perform critical team system outputs.
High Performing Teams accept responsibility as individuals and as a team. They don’t blame one another for team mistakes and failures. They need to celebrate their successes together and recognize the unique contributions that each team member makes to the total work of the team.
How freely and frequently team members communicate — determines the effectiveness of any team. Put simply, the more freely you talk to your fellow team members, the more comfortable you are in sharing insights and ideas.
Encourage Differences in Opinions
Agreeing on a common goal is essential. But it shouldn’t come at the cost of suppressing alternative ideas and opinions. Having divergent opinions within a team enhances team performance; a diverse team is its competitive advantage. Diverse opinions stir imagination, new ideas and creativity.
Close collaboration is a trait shared by every successful team. A humanistic, encouraging and connected approach to how we do things around here. The idea is simple enough: the more you collaborate and the more you communicate, the more you create.
Team members who cannot trust one another or who don’t believe in the process and goals of the team rarely find success as there is no team or game plan self-efficacy. Trust is an adjunct of effective communication. There can only be trust between team members if they are allowed to air their views freely, what we call ‘vulnerability based trust’.
A chief characteristic of any successful team is that members place the all important common goal above individual interests. While scaling individual targets is great for personal morale, teams succeed when they understand, appreciate and work with a common purpose.
