My Nemo team development planning tool (stylised fishbone or ishikawa diagram) has made plenty of appearances recently. Today he swam into a session with Auckland Transport. Thank you Nemo and team: Christian Messelyn, Alitta Meijer, Ian Howell, John Nottage, Donald Green, Alan Peddie, Isabelle Adams, Damian Flynn.

As I explore the south of the south I am grateful to Aotearoa New Zealand for:

1. Incomparable natural beauty (picture is not photoshopped and yes it is cold)

2. Safety and health

3. Freedom and opportunity

Regular acknowledgement of things you are grateful for increases your wellbeing. If you are not already doing this regularly, give it a try....


In the “Team Coaching Handbook” (editors: Prof David Clutterbuck, Colm Murphy, Tammy Turner, MCC) (in press), my chapter outlines the good, bad and unexpected experiences of working with a team at St John, New Zealand. Earlier video's in this series focus on why and how this journey took place. In this final video the client, Gary Connolly (Deputy Chief Executive Finance and Insights St John, New Zealand), talks about how the team development journey has continued. As Prof Peter Hawkins says “The team development journey should never be seen as a place of arrival … the environment, subsystems and interrelationships between them are constantly changing.” Development is a journey that never ends both individually and as a team.

This is the last video in a series of 10. To see all 10 videos visit my website

Thanks for sharing your insight Gary Connolly. Whether you are the client or the coach there is a lot to learn from your insight.
