Expected Outcome

What if you imagine your team and organisation as a thriving ecosystem? 

This question might be new for you, or you might already have certain images in your mind. In either case: we support you to deepen and extend the collaborative capacities that are so fundamental to your work and success. 

Working with us long-term means having a sparring partner by your side to create space for topics such as team psychological safety, giving and receiving feedback, and establishing new structures and processes. More specifically, our support enables you to: 

  • expand your repertoire of methods and tools to foster efficient and appreciative collaboration. 
  • strengthen trust, team psychological safety and information sharing. 
  • build systemic awareness of your own team and organisation, and understand how to influence team and organisational culture constructively.
  • receive outside perspectives on new ideas, questions or challenges, and have a partner by your side to facilitate (difficult) workshops and conversations.

Our Approach

Having Unity Effect as your long-term sparring and support partner brings you multiple benefits, such as tapping into the entire spectrum of our services and expertise, including those of our trusted partners. 

And knowing the complex nature of working towards social or environmental change, we make one promise to you: we keep it as simple as we can. This means that:

  1. One dedicated Unity Effect team member will be your main point of contact and exchange. 
  2. We will work in thematic phases: 6-9 month cycles, where all our activities contribute to one clear, central intention. 

Working in these cycles enables us to combine focus and flexibility, with each cycle comprising these five phases:

  1. Initial assessment and joint intention setting
  2. Provision and contextualisation of resources
  3. Thematic workshops
  4. 1-on-1 and small-group reflections with relevant actors
  5. Joint reflection based on regular & regenerative evaluation of teamwork

Intentions for thematic phases can range from strengthening trust and team psychological safety, to setting up engaging meeting structures or strategic stakeholder engagement. All this is centred around your agency and self-determination: we can support you to identify what matters most and build the internal capacities for thriving teamwork. 

During each stage of the cycle, we bring research-based resources from our Living Library, grounded in practical experience which helps you integrate them into your daily work.

In a unique way that is rarely found, Emily combines competence, professionalism and creativity with enthusiasm, authenticity and fun. Unity Effect does not only talk social entrepreneurship and new work, they know what it means and how to make it work in real life. I enjoy and have benefited from each and every collaboration with Unity Effect and Emily can only highly recommend them as a competent and professional partner.

Thanks to that, for myself I now perceive leadership as the gift and sign of confidence that it is and am happy to assume this role in my organization. We as a team could already implement new structures and tools that help us to grow together and to create a work environment in which we feel safe enough to be ourselves and to bring in all our resources and ideas.

Pricing

Based on our core principles to empower collaboration and solidarity we aim at a pricing that feels fair and appropriate for both parties. 

Customised pricing
EUR
Net
EUR +19% VAT

Each long-term collaboration is unique and customised to your own specific objectives and requirements. Therefore, rather than stating a fixed price, we discuss details bilaterally, in general taking these central aspects into account:

  1. The intensity of support provided, e.g. the frequency of thematic workshops or provision of tailored resources and 1-on-1 support
  2. The length of commitment
  3. Your type of organisation (e.g. NGO, established organisation, company), as we work with price ranges and a solidarity model
