Resilient and regenerative teamwork: A free workshop for decision-makers in organisations
Join now

This workshop is specially crafted to empower decision-makers at all levels to support and guide their organisations on their path towards becoming more resilient and thriving places to be and work in.

As a project, team or department lead, executive, HR manager or thought leader, your role is essential in shaping the future of your organisation. We invite you to join a free introductory workshop where we provide hands-on experience of our work and outline ways to collaborate with us on topics around team and leadership development, organisational learning, and regenerative measurement and evaluation.

The workshop includes:

  • a short introduction to Unity Effect’s work,
  • a thematic deep dive into a topic chosen by the group,
  • a brief free assessment for your team or organisation, and
  • the chance to ask questions and connect with us.

In our work, we support purpose- and vision-driven organisations such as foundations, development agencies, social enterprises and impact networks. To create the change we wish to see in this world, we know that resilient and regenerative teamwork and creating a collaborative organisational culture are top concerns for leaders like you.

We accompany you in strengthening internal foundations to create long-lasting and systemic change. And we know that this is not an easy task in an increasingly complex world. Workshop takeaways include:

  • first insights into tools and practices to foster a positive culture, promote employee well-being, and nurture innovation and creativity,
  • strategies for responding to internal and external challenges,
  • a first analysis of pressure and leverage points in your own team and organisation, and
  • pathways for collaborating with Unity Effect.

Spaces are limited, so secure your spot today by registering below or contacting us at: Please note that we host this workshop regularly. If this time does not work for you, have a look at our upcoming workshops.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Free Online Workshop: Setting Boundaries & Saying No
Join now

New Year, new me?

Many of us start the new year with resolutions and motivation to do things differently. Yet to make a change, it’s often less about beginning and adding new things, and much more about stopping something “old” that no longer serves us.

That’s why we will start the year looking at boundaries and at saying no. You know that feeling when you say yes to a request or opportunity when you really wanted to say no? It doesn't feel great – and often leads to resentment and overcommitment. If you struggle with this, you are definitely not alone! Imagine how much simpler it would be if we were honest about what is and isn’t ok for us in different situations and communicated that clearly. And if others were clear with us too. Liberating, right? That’s what setting boundaries is all about.

Free Online Workshop: Building Trust and Psychological Safety in Teams
Join now

Trust: the magic ingredient for empowered, collaborative and innovative teams. In fact, in a two year study on team performance at Google, researchers found that the most important factor which set successful teams apart was psychological safety: the belief that it’s safe to take risks, make mistakes and be vulnerable with peers. So how can we intentionally build psychological safety and trust in our teams?
