Who's it for?
Students' Unions that want to break the mould and test our approach to uniting newly elected Students' Union Officers.

A full-day workshop (in person or online).


This modern approach is built from our extensive experience of building leaders and high-performing teams. The session will create a unified ‘ONE TEAM’ and has the following outcomes:


TEAMWORKCreate a deep bond between the newly elected Sabbatical Officers that will be the foundation for all to come.

PERFORMANCE: Ensure a great understanding of each other’s strengths, values and passions, to improve collaborative working.

IMPACT: Build new self-leadership and team leadership skills to ensure their big ideas lead to big change.

Tangible outcomes:

How does the day run?

The non-corporate, energised day will be based on the two principles of hacking – speed and impact. The days cover these sprints:

Gain access – includes our self-analysis modules to help drive performance. You’ll be guided through self-analysis by a coach, and will get to understand fellow Officers in a deep and emotionally connected way

Leak it – communicate and apply yourself with your new team in a compelling way

Collaborate – make plans to enable others to supercharge you

Continually hack – use simple techniques that will help you to continually improve your impact as an individual and a team
