Our Services

How we help
We offer four primary services: consulting, training, coaching, and content.
We only charge when we are delivering: we work by the hour remotely and by the day onsite.

Consulting and advice
Consulting and advice

We can help:
develop leadership, helping managers and executives understand the advanced ways of managing, including servant management and Agile principles

introduce new ways of working and managing: coaching management and staff to empowerment, collaboration, agility, and flow

build culture, through attention to leadership, flourishing, space, empowerment, community and communications

Training and workshops
Training and workshops

Authentic, powerful, useful: our popular and successful training in new ways of work and management challenges conventional beliefs and practices of the workplace, to open you up to greater workplace agility and humanity.

We provide our own training that is a blend of lectures, workshops, activities, games, and simulations, to provide a rich learning experience for students.


In addition to general consulting, Teal Unicorn provides practical, tactical management coaching to get results with the new advanced ways of managing.

If you have a manager finding their way as the organisation advances, or are yourself still unpacking what it means, Teal Unicorn will provide reflection, advice, insight, and principles.


We provide written content, presentations, and discussions.

When you source content from us, you get a freshness of viewpoint, an independence of opinion, and an originality of ideas that you won't find in many other providers of business content. Our material is unique. If desired, it is also provocative and quirky.

Measure us on three things: the results we have had with clients, the number of clients who engage us more than once (almost all of them), and the contribution we make to your own results.
