Fiona Hunter, the author of Woven, is a director of Stravaig and offers a unique breadth of team-development skills for our clients.

WOVEN is different.  It is a tested, and proven way to develop your team that adopts a fundamentally different approach to the vast majority of conventional team-development approaches. The full details are described in the book, available on Amazon. Fiona’s article for the NZ Human Resources Institute is summarised here.

International recognition for WOVEN

WOVEN features on the global VIA website as one of five recommended practitioner tools, and has also featured in a VIA blog.

Woven is a programme that puts the team in charge of their development, and offers a simple framework to work through using readily available tools and approaches. It encourages communication and establishes the conditions for trust to be developed within the team. 

A key difference with this approach is that it takes account of the actual work that the team needs to get done and includes this in the programme. You could say that it “weaves team purpose and outcomes” into a developmental approach that lifts team performance. Have a look at participant comments and international reviewer comments on WOVEN.

Woven runs over a 9-month time-frame with work to be done each month, ensuring the thinking becomes embedded in day-to-day work of the team.
