Coaching In Nature Experiences 

For Team Well-being 

Experiences for Teams & Groups

Transform & Grow with our team well-being solutions

Well-being solutions for organisations, teams and community groups. 

Here at WTMG we believe that it’s possible to be kind, compassionate and inspirational, creating conditions for your staff to thrive.

Running a business is full of challenges and unknowns, and that’s before you even put “life-stuff” in the mix.  Without the skills, knowledge and ethos to create a happy, healthy and resilient workforce, businesses often flounder in the face of change & uncertainty.

Our nature-based coaching programmes, help teams to explore and nurture well-being solutions, that benefit individual and collective resilience.

We love to work with companies that understand their business is an ever-changing eco-system. By valuing well-being as part of employee’s continuous development, you are creating foundations for your team to excel, in turn strengthening the certainty of your business.

 Equipping your staff with the tools & talents to be healthy and happy is essential in testing times.

We know businesses often try and create well-being strategies.  In isolation from the top down, with the best intentions at heart. You only have to look to nature to know that things flourish from the root outwards and upwards. We save you time and money, helping you avoid wasting your efforts on ideas that never reach maturity.

Just like a woodland eco-system, your well-being strategy is enhanced when you draw upon the diversity of the people within your organizations to cultivate, root and raise your wellbeing vision.

You alone cannot be the solution to your team’s well-being needs, but you can empower staff to uncover ideas, discover resources and create a culture that means everyone is equipped to keep well in work.

Our Programme Principles 

  •  Employee wellbeing   we help businesses create conditions for their employees to thrive. Mental Health and Well-being are an essential part of any workplace. Equipping staff with ways to keep well, helps businesses flourish too.

  • Culture – Time, energy and attention goes into supporting you. Coming together as a team and creating a well-being movement in your organisation. Culture  doesn’t happen over night,  requiring cultivation, nourishment and adaptability through change. We support your team to embed wellness into the heart of what you do and ensure there is space for those ideas and resources to grow.  

  •  Sustainability -   As well as being earth-minded in our approach, with tree planting and carbon offset as part of our package. We value sustainability in our approach to well-being and help you explore, scrutinize, and realise well-being solutions. Flexible not flimsy is our rule of thumb when it comes to creating sustainable solutions for your teams health & happiness.   

We love to work with likeminded businesses, passionate about people & planet. We draw on practical coaching & facilitation approaches, helping your team to develop skills that reduce stress, increase focus and motivate people. Our sessions help build confidence, esteem and broaden awareness in the value of self-care. Equipping every team member with the knowledge and capabilities to improve their mental health and well-being in and out of work.

Making workplace well-being natural  

Employee well-being becomes part of your culture when you create sustainable strategies that support the health and happiness of your staff.

Our coaching & facilitation offers something a little different. Drawing upon the ecopsychology and regenerative principles of nature helping your team deal with change, challenge and uncertainty.

We know that spending time out in nature helps teams to reduce stress, increase focus and inspires innovation. We also see the benefit of nature connectedness on pro-environmental behaviors helping teams to become great social citizens too.

Nature has been developing its resilience strategies for billions of years. We are in the presence of a pretty wise tutorto relate, adapt & adopt our own well-being strategies learning a thing or too from the natural world.  

Because we know, businesses like yours, are kind to people and planet. We put compassion at the heart of what we do too. Ensuring each of our programmes dedicates funds back into local tree planting and carbon offsetting initiatives. So, when you invest in the wellbeing of your team you are investing in nature too.

Nurturing your well-being culture

We know that the cyclical nature of business means that one day just isn’t enough to equip  staff with the skills and knowledge to enhance well-being.

 

Just like the natural world we know that cultivating a lasting culture requires patience, resilience and conditions to thrive.

That’s why we dedicate four days of coaching & facilitation. Hosting a space, away from the hustle and the bustle of work distractions, to switch off, refocus and explore.

We work with companies for 6-18 months to complete the programme together.  Each phase explores, educates and creates action. In between each session we support you with e-resources to help your team explore & embed learning. From creative well-being activities to blogs and tips. 

We love to build lasting relationships with organisations to help you invest your time and money wisely. 

 

Seasonal additions

Because our approach to well-being is about learning from the wisdom and expertise of nature, as well as ourselves.  Leaning to the seasons, helps reflect and adapt our own well-being strategies and helps your team relate to the seasonal nature of your business too.

 

It doesn’t matter when you start your team wellbeing programme with us,  each session is adapted to incorporate a seasonal based well-being activity in nature. Our nature based activities, invite teams to create space and learn additional skills. Framed through the lens of seasonal shifts, we help teams to incorporate knowledge and awareness of well-being needs through the year.

Our nature activities draw upon the Five pathways to nature connectedness (Derby University) helping you to explore ways to enhance your personal wellness plan and enhance workplace motivation and resilence. 

Our activities explore:

  • Senses

  • Emotion

  • Beauty

  • Meaning
