Reading the room

We bring a contemporary view on how to lead for change within your organisation. Focusing on relationship dynamics, conversations, group patterns and ingrained mindsets and beliefs.

“If you can’t read the room, you can’t lead the room.” As David Kantor says so perfectly, being the most skilled in the room gets you nowhere if you lose the people around you, so understanding your surroundings and the impact you’re making is the recipe to success. Reading the room isn’t an easy task. To be self-aware and understand your role in a team setting is one part, reading and interpreting physical and verbal signals from others is another, and understanding team dynamics and what works and what doesn’t for different situations is also another crucial element. This seed combines all these components and makes it easy for you. If you are looking to improve your team’s communication and collaboration or if you’re looking to have a greater leadership impact, you are in the right place.


By acquiring this seed, you will gain the essential expertise to read the room you are in. You will be provided with models and behavioural science insights that teach you how teams develop and behave to fulfil their full potential. You’ll understand the different existing team roles and the impact it holds, how to adjust your role in different settings, and how to pick up signals from your colleagues in the room. Learning and practising team effectiveness is simplified and made comprehensible with this seed. You will see a tremendous difference in team delivery, communication, and cooperation.


All the seeds we offer are targeted bite-sized, robust skill development boosters. No longer than 90 minutes to 2 hours, we support our clients to receive the insights they’re looking for in a modular session, specifically focused on their own context and needs. They fit perfectly in a face-to-face or virtual session.
